Building a Flames of War Objective

Sooo, since I like to give all my miniature armies some uniqueness by little conversions, additions and scratchbuilds I figured it would be a good time to do some scratchbuilding for my Flames of War army.

The subject this time would be making an objective, since my forces were lacking one. Flames of War only specifies the measurements of the base-area an objective need to cover, so there were no limitations beyond that.

I set my mind to building some sort of radio-station or radar, that would be a nice objective to either capture or defend for my forces.

After some googling I stumbled upon the following picture:

That would be an awesome objective to capture; a German Wurzburg Riese (Giant Wurzburg) Radar station.

HMS King George V and HMS Prince of Wales

So, for this project I decided that I was going to try to build 3 ships at the same time (big mistake!). And to add insult to injury I also figured I would try a more difficult project than any of my scratchbuilds to date….
