Thank you all!

The mealie bag barricade was modeled by Massimo Costa. But I will model most of the bags myself. I would also like to show the building of the Redubt.

You'll end up with stone mason's biceps after moving all that rock. :-D :yeah:
They do look nice as well as native to the Natal landscape.

Thank you!

I am currently building the walls of the kraal. It is a lot of work because thousands of small real stones have to be glued individually. But I think it's worth it.

This is probably the most realistic wall in 1/72 that I have ever seen! You should make some casts before it is permanently fixed onto the diorama, there might be a number of interested customers ...

I thank you! I try to build historically as correctly as possible. The movie "Zulu" is very well made, but has little in common with the historical buildings and the historical scenery.

Today I was able to glue some more smaller stones to the rock slope and insert the garden wall into the diorama:
