I have decided to extend the german side by 1ft as it is not historicaly correct:
-The german coastal defence fort was not at the edge of the cliff and was further in mainland
-I am also making it higher as the top of the cliff would of had trenches

Here is the extension so far:
Before paper mache is added-

And after paper mache was added(note the trench-this is not the front of the cliff it is behind the original bit)-

Falcon,

Could you please take a little consideration when typing posts:

1-Use capital letters and full stops.
2-Please do not use text talk (eg-lol) as some members may struggle to read them.

Thanks,
Josh Very Happy

Sam,

The airfix jeep is not made any more so the only place you could get them is ebay Idea

However, there is a make called heller who is made by airfix, they still produce one the same as airfix,

Take a look on the link below:(these are the ones I used)
