Yesterday I started building an entrance to an underground bunker. After a quick sketch of what I wanted I started work on it like I was possessed.
Using an MDF coaster I purchased at a hardware store a long time ago I cut out a bunker from foam card, which included stairs down to the entrance itself.
It was after I made the actual bunker that I changed tack a bit and started added parts of styrene boxes around the bunker so as to give it the appearance it was actually in the ground.
At this stage I started to take photos to post on my blog:
|Bunker glued to the base, with bits of styrene placed around it to see how it would work|
|Same stage, but showing the rear of the bunker.|
|After covering the inside gaps with masking tape, I started on the next level.|
|The bunker built, with slight sculpting on the sides.|
|Undercoat on the bunker itself|
|Undercoat on the hill. Note the sides have sand glued to them before painting.|
|Top coat for the bunker applied.|
|Flock added to the top of the hill; note the glue is still drying at this stage.|
|The bunker 'in play'|
I am toying with the idea of adding more scenery to the hill and the top of the bunker - a clump of grass or small bushes for example, but not too sure on that yet.
The bunker isn't exactly a master piece, but it will suit my purposes.
Now... is the bunker a haven, or where super nazi zombies are lurking?
