Light fortification type 37 A in 1/72 scale
kit by Interwing
Czechoslovak army, September 1938

     Practically all Czechs know many similar empty fortifications that are still surviving in our border region. If I’m right there were more 9.000 of them there in September 1938 and just types 37 were most of them. 

     The kit box included the terrain cast of gypsum and the fortification itself, some interior parts and accessories cast of resin. The building of this model was relatively simple. I just had to modify the gypsum terrain to get better palace to fit resin fortification on. The grass on the fortification roof was the problem for me only because this fortification is my first model in diorama style. I have to point out that this model is not finished yet because I have to repair some damaged places and also plan to complete it with camouflage net and in future. I used the distemper to paint grass. The tree is taken from such railway accessories.
