Fences - a slight distraction

While working on the barbed wire I came across a set of the old Airfix fences that were still flexible, so one I bought some more lolly stick for the next batch of barbed wire I decided to get them out of the way.
Originally they had small bases so they were self-standing (in theory). So I just drilled holes in the lolly sticks to take the lugs and added a touch of hot glue to secure them. Then it was nearly standard basing, except I was trying a new base paint colour as I can get any more of the colour I have been using. Since it's quite a close match I'll buy a large pot so I won't have the problem again for quite a while.

I have the very same fences, and did much the same for basing... reckon they must be over 40 years old now...

rank, the field are a a sort of astroturf provided by a friend at my club who had some spare offcuts Unlike most of this stuff its actually multi-coloured and didn't need any toning down.
