Hawker Hurricane Snow Base . .

Hello Everyone Adi here . . .

I wanted to make a Snowy Base for the Finnish AF Hawker Hurricane which I just completed.

To make the base I use Plywood and cover this with acrylic putty. I use baking powder to sprinkle the base for the Snow Effect.

I make trees using wooden kitchen skewers and single strand wire. For the branches I used dried grass as I did not have access to Woodland Scenics Sea Foam.

I make my own flocking using a sponge and I churn it in the mixer. I make two different shades of green.

I spray the trees with diluted PVA Glue and sprinkle these trees with baking powder for the snow.

The whole base was completed in a Day using basic and simple steps . . .
