Jerry, Shawn, thanks for your words. I'm glad you like the wire!

A quick update on the fence. I' ve soldered the horizontal twisted wires and the barber wire also. This is how it looks right now.

Rolling the barbed wire:


All fixed up



Next is to make the net. I'not sure if use a mesh I have at home or look for something more accurated.

Best regards!!

What is the diameter of this wire? Count how much it should be in the 1:35 scale. In my opinion it is too thick

It's 0,7mm. About 2,4cm in real life.

I'm thinking about put another barbed wire, so the fence would have a double barbed wire. What do you think??

Great idea!!! Do you have targets? I was just on ebay and searched 1/35 targets and some nice printed ones showed up.

Good luck

Hi Jimmy. I have no targets yet. I don't even search for any, but I think I know how to scratchbuild some. Anyway if any of the veterans here could show some targets, it would be great.

Thanks!!!

Today's update.

Fence is done and fixed on its place. It's fixed with hot glue. Mesh is done with a mesh I found I don't know where.




Terrain is made mixing white glue with sand.



That's all for now

Have a nice weekend!!

Thanks Jerry. I´m glad you like it.

I´ve been filling the base with sand and covering the fence´s support. The side where the shooter will be placed is completely filled with sand.







Next picture is a first display of the figures at the other side of the fence.





And finally, yesterday late I made one target, using a sheet of brass. I also printed a target silhouette and made the shots using the tip of a pliers. I have no picture of the rear side, next time.





That´s all for now. I hope you like it.

Cheers!!

Thanks Tim! I´m glad you like it.

Now I´m going to show you some weekend´s work. I made some sand bags with clay and added another target,at different height. I think that this side is finished, unless you advise me with something else. The white spots are Mod Podge, for making puddles. Here are the pictures







And these are 2 pictures with a general overview with the shooter (not the definitve position).






That´s all for now. Next is finishing the shooter and add an advice on the fence. But I guess this would be next weekend.

REgards!!!

This is looking really good, but that barbed wire is monstrously oversized and spoils it a bit.

Cheyenne, thanks for your words.

Pave-Hawk, it´s a good appointment. I´m thinking about making another barbed wire, because it looks a bit big. ANother option is add another one. Thanks for your words!

Well, I have made the barbed wire again. Now it's smaller and longer. I think it looks better now. Thoughts???

Nacho, still the barbed wire is too thick. It looks like the thickness of a human finger

I agree on the thickness and that product would work the three strands across the fence post. For the coil you want razor wire. Which is a different devil to play with. Some called it type 2 razor wire a few examples of existing products Eduard 35640, ET Models J35-007 or Verlinden 0715

That should get you something like this.

Thanks gents for your tips and links. As I want to make the barbed wire, I'm going to try it again with a thinner wire I have found at home. So I'll show it to you as I finish it.

Thanks again for your words!

Here I go again with the fence. Now it's smaller. What do you think now??





And now, I have doubts about putting a piece of barbed wire just in front of the shooter. What do you think, gents??



Thanks for watching.

I feel for you Nacho but have to agree it’s still way too thick. I can’t remember the gauge# but I found that the thinnest fuse/fuze wire was the closest I could get to scale…but I never found a way of attaching scale barbs to it the way you did. Would it be easier or harder to make razor wire rather than barbed wire?

Hahahahahaha. Ok, Maki. I'll go to the hardware store to look for a thinner wire

Tim, I think that the barbed wire is easier to make. At least for me.

Thansk for your comments!!

Go to an electronics store, get some magnet wire, or winding wire. Usually available in a variety of thicknesses.

Barb wire would be easier with Nacho's method with smaller wire. Razor wire has two plates if you will on each side. This is where PE parts* would help out.

I get the idea of wire in front of the target but it doesn't work for me. One, I have only seen barb wire stretched out, so I think of that as razor wire. Two, I hate hate razor wire. It will catch you (me), every time so it would be difficult to change out the target without shredding your clothes. That said, if you like the idea then go for it, it's your build to have fun with.

*we did a club build with Verlinden PE razor wire rolled on top of a M1151 hood. One has to wear gloves as the pe will cut you like the real thing.
