While Monique had gone to meet the SOE agent, a group of resistance fighters had gone out to sabotage the branch line the German's were using to move ammunition up to their big railway guns.

Can't be somewhere in France without a vineyard, so decided to make one. The plan was to use only stuff I had to hand (and buy nothing new !) I'd looked at some examples online of others who made vineyard bases for inspiration.
I decided on 12 bases, each about 8.5 inches long.
First up was the base, thin card with a top part made from coffee stirrers. The holes for the posts and vines were marked out and drilled. Then first job was to put in the posts.
Next step add the woody parts of the vines. For this I cut up some old plastic trees into suitable pieces ...
I had just enough to do all 12 bases...
All the pieces got a wash of brown on the posts and the vine wood painted brown too..
Adding the foliage, I decided on using the pieces off old plastic trees ...
to blend together the plastic pieces and foliage clumps, painted over with leaf green
