Dave's Danert (wire that is)

Bit of a lesson from scenery maker extraordinaire David Russell...




Undercoated base stands




Some attention to the height of the fixing posts is important to keep it all in scale with 20mm





Dave has all of the right tools, I tend to improvise a bit more on most things:)






Always looks better sanded - same if you're drilling into hills






Usually Dave would have his kids at different stages of the scenery factory, as you've all seen before




Ready for the wire





Different sized dowel will produce larger or smaller coils depending on what you're after





The brown stuff on the base is really strong builders contact glue, it's called liquid nails over here




Note the spacing



Flock for basing, Dave makes his stuff from really fine saw dust which has been coloured








For WW1 games you can never have enough of this stuff





Thanks Dave
