British Army Bastion 1/72nd scale kit
This is a 1/72nd scale kit made of lead-free pewter. It was originally made for a friend in South Wales MAFVA. who wanted to make a 1/72nd scale diorama of a checkpoint in Bosnia. It is also suitable for use in Iraq, and in Afghanistan, and is how Camp Bastion got its name. The master pattern was made using a manufacturer’s brochure.
It is made up of three parts, the two sides and a top. Glue the sides together and then fit the top over them. The bastion shown here was spray painted using a rattle can from Humbrol, Desert Tan 237. Once it is touch dry, go over it with a tissue or cotton bud to take the paint off the metal cage around the outside of the bastion, or scrape the paint off with a blade. Finish off by adding sand or stone dust (this one has limestone dust in it) to the cup shaped top. Give it a light spray with water to dampen it, then apply diluted PVA glue and leave to set.
The price includes packing and first class post in the UK for a single item
