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!

Cheers Ron didn't look at it that way but maybe your right.
I am back on it trying to assess the damage but not giving up.
Thanks for the motivation :smiling3:

It happens to all of us now and then Stuart, a couple of years ago Miss Kitty toppled "Mien Comraden" dio totally smashing it but good, how she managed to nudge it off the shelf I'll never know, I'm sure it out weighs her by quite a bit:confused:

I spent many a peed off hour repairing it and when it made it's debut on site no damage could be seen except a few hairline cracks in plaster cast ruined building.

Oh the little "black devil" as I call her is the apple of Mamma's eye and an excellent mouser, so of course.
