Extended Great North Roads Base

I bought the Great North Roads corner-vignette Dio Base from Sean Mullarkey a couple of years ago at the Nationals and have never found a satisfactory use for it.

I also had some corner shelves in a quarter circle shape so I decided to put the two together to use as a base for my M20 armoured car and a Sherman (What else?)

I glued the Great North Roads piece to the shelf abnd then made a retaining mould by wrapping a piece of foam board around the front and sides and poured coloured plaster in

While the plaster was drying I shaped it to match the profile of the road and pavement so now all I have to do is add the vehicles and rubble and carved the remaining exposed area with cobbles and paving stones

Nice one Pat.
I like how the building is offest on the corner and that it's not pure right angles. :>

Nice work, Pat. Since the building is a ruin, will the Sherman be burnt out? :-" :-"

Ah but remember once I mark where the Sherman is to go and put some rubble in place there won't be many cobblestones to carve ;)

Pat,

Just have rubble spilling out onto the street, from the building, more so in that area than others?
