|Wall tent. The figures are by Sash and Sabre|
Later in the week I built a 4x8 officer's wall tent with a fly. I used bond paper for the main tent and cooking parchment for the fly. The tent took about 4 hours to make, but hopefully subsequent ones will be faster.

I added extra rafters, as this building would be built sturdy in case it took fire.

I made stockade fences using twigs I collected from a field near my house.

The infantry squad inside are 28mm scale figures, but measure more like 36mm high, nearly O scale. I am not sure who made them.
The soldiers are practicing their musket drill while inside the blockhouse. The low ceiling could interfere with the ramrods during loading, so the men are practicing to familiarize themselves with defending the bunker.
|Since the interior is visible, I will detail it.|
