    The trench

    It's not much but this is a shot inside the mock WW1 trench I built in my basement to display collection. It was built 100% from materials I had laying around, abscounded from the town dump, and procured behind the local grocer. Back in the day I would call it an aboration, today I guess the word is green! Dano
    By the way, trees were already cut so nature was not altered in any way (BFD) Dan

    Wife

    My wife was totally cool about it, she actually supports me in this hobby. She didn't even mind losing the small amount of cellar area Dan

    thats damned good if i may say so. What are the measurements? How long did it take you to do it? Well done.

    I like it ---

    My basement looks like that naturally and the odd rodent gets in too ~

    get a couple of taxidermied Rats, - or really good rubber ones. I always wanted to do that and broad arrow mark the Rats for fun --

    Trench Rats

    I also occasionally run across the occasional rodent in the trench. It is about 9 feet long 5 1/2 feet wide at top and again is something I threw together with available junk. After I had materials gathered took 2 days to erect. 6 pallates supplied behind my grocers store, sand bags mostly made from old couch I had hand sewn stuffed with batting, some junk lumber and sawed up tree branches. I have more time than money, and the money I do have i like to buy ordnance. Dano
