Arnhem Bridge - Part 1

I've started work on recreating Arnhem Bridge and the surrounding area captured and defended by John Frost and the paras during operation Market Garden.

Overhead view. North at the top. Bridge just off picture in the centre off the southern edge
The buildings I'm using are what I had to hand from several different sets of brigademodels.co.uk buildings and are not exact replicas for the originals.

Aerial view. Bridge to left. Road running through the centre left to right
I intend to base the buildings separately from the terrain so I can use them elsewhere.
The area covered isn't actually that big but there are about 100 individual buildings here.
The bridge is scratch built and has taken about 5 hours so far. It's not my best work but I'm just doing it for kicks really.
I'll probably game the battle to recapture the bridgehead but its likely to be a one off. I don't think the fight will be particularly exciting. The Germans are going to win but they are going to get badly hurt in the process.
I'll post more once I've painted the buildings and created a base.
Keep gaming. Charles the Modeller
