Taking shape...

...big time!

I added the trench works to the top of the Collina della Formica, and shaped the base.  It took a long time and a sliced appendage or two, but it is looking good.. And it's BIG! but we are in the mountains, after all.

I still need to glue the sections together, and add some rocky outcroppings from offcuts of the foam board. After that, the next steps will be to shape the rock face, line the trench walls with stone and wood revetments, and to build up a stony parapet.

The Italians better bring on those trench mortars!

Once all that is done, it will be time to drench the board with filler and sculpt and shape the details. Lots to do yet, but it is fun!
