    My models are finally on display at Remembering 1916 in South Croydon, London. Today is of course the centenary of the commencement of the Somme Offensive.

    what a fitting display for an outstanding set of work. If the display is not going to be permenant is it possible to do a tour of other museums?.

    It is absolutely tremendous that your work will get the audience it deserves.
    I sincerely hope you have allowed yourself to be proud of your creational achievement.

    For anyone who is interested in how I have created these trench sections there is an article in the latest Military Modelling Magazine (see link above). My article includes a mixture of facts about British trenches of the Great War and the methods that I have used to create the models. This article covers the first 3 of my sections, all British, but the intention is that I will write about the other 6 sections in the future. Although the article is credited to someone called Beasley it is by me, Andy BELSEY.

    "Although the article is credited to someone called Beasley it is by me, Andy BELSEY."

    :facepalm: Doh! Editors...sheesh! I hope you received an apology and a correction.

    All the best,

    Although my models are on display at Remembering 1916 I still need to populate 5 of the sections. I am preparing Tommy's War figures for them. Most are simple conversions.
    For the dugout I have 2 figures. One will be asleep on the bed the other reading a map near the gas curtain, so he doesn't block the view. All I did for this figure was to change his right arm and neck so that he looked down at the map (and add a Brodie).

    This is another is another simple conversion. Just work on his left arm but I made a folding periscope, which he already had the pouch for . He'll be on the new firestep looking for a counter-attack. I've been blogging on Military Modelling if you are interested. I'll post more later.

    This guy is converted from one of Tommy's gun crew. He'll be shaving. You couldn't leave a shell hole in daylight, so everything had to be done there until it was dark. He will have his gun, helmet and gasmask at hand. (The more observant will notice that I put his razor in his hand the wrong way round - it's not stuck yet!)
