    Well Stuart I've just started to look at this, and may I say what great work your putting into it. I will be following from now on. And some nice advice from Ron, I think its going to be a cracking diorama.

    Glad to be of some help. But going by your progress thus far, you don't really need it!:)

    I've been wondering when we would get the next installment. I was beginning to think you were over the wire and into the woods already!:)

    It's really starting to look sinister, top work for sure.

    Stuart, second figure from the left, last picture. He's deffo having a crafty fag - or is he giving a rude gesture to the prisoners? Made me chuckle. anyway.

    Been away the weekend to come home and find that my boy thought it was a great idea to play near my model with a football,
    Yep you guessed it ,it landed on top.
    I am absolutely gutted,I think I can repair most of it but it will not be the same as some bits broken beyond repair.
    Main damage is to the fence so fingers crossed it will be passable come the end.
    All that time and effort :(:(:(

    Hard luck, Stuart. It must have been upsetting on first sight.

    But try and be positive. What's done is done. I wouldn't even try and repair it to look like the original.

    Consider this. The perimeter fence could well have been up for a few years, so what's wrong with a new and different section of wire or a different type of post?

    Work this setback to your advantage. I would consider repaired bits (lack of maintenance) would add to the authenticity of the model.

    I'd still ground the boy though!
