Great stuff. You have transformed this Airfix classic into something rather special.

Well done indeed.

Hi , friends.
Thank you very much for the compliments.
I think that by the end of the month I will finish this work.
Most of the pieces are already in the final stages of finishing.

Fabulous work on this.

Youve changed it from a fairly sterile looking defensive structure into what looks like a place that soldiers could really live in. The headquarters builkding and officers stable is an excellent addition.

Hi . Thank you.
Main gate optional.
I used the Nexus Kit part, Atlantic Old, Kit Carson (Atl 11).
I did mold . With the piece still not completely dry, I cut the size I needed.

Hi , friends. :thumbup:

Updating, I'm preparing the donkeys and mules for the troops of the fort.
Image

Image

In my opinion, the donkey was satisfactory.
Image

The problem came at the time of producing the mules. I'm in doubt which would be best. The first or the second?
I would like to know the opinions of my friends in the forum.

Regards. :yeah:

Hi, Ochoin.
I am very honored by your comment.
Thank you very much. :thumbup: ;-)
As I said before, I'm not sure which head is better for the mules and would like comments from friends about it.
The donkey and the mules are:
- Donkey .Warteloo head and body, Nexus.
- Mules 1. Head , Hat and body, Airfix.
- Mules 2. Zvezda.

Regards.

I like the mule on the left. The otther one seems to be very thin.

Are the legionaires in a better condition this morning? Do you have a jail in the fort?

In the C21st, the fort wouldn't have a jail but possess a Wellness Spa. And Legionaries with drinking problems would request counselling from a HRE consultant.

And PETA would have issues with *any* mules/donkeys being used as beasts of burden.

I'm glad your Fort Sahara is NOT in the C21st.

I see what your solders on the wall and at the turret do.
I have a very good feeling that this will be a real good work of you.

This is just getting more and more interesting! And that pipesmoking guy is one of the best poses in my opinion!
