When I was at Colours I bought some scenery from Urban Construct, who had some nice looking craters but they had bits of Jerry Cans and oil drums and other WW2 onwards stuff modelled on to them.

When doing a mail order from them after the show, I thought I’d ask if they did any craters without such modern debris so as to fit in with BoB and AVBCW

I can do craters without jerry cans, how many do you want?

And so I ordered some small and large craters which they cast up for me:

I had 3 large and six small done, and there is a fair amount of variation in them.

They were delivered Saturday morning. Nicely cast with no flash. I set to work on two immediately: basing them with artists card; followed by black undercoat; my base soil colour; a wash of Devlan Mud; and then some dry brushing; plus stone grey for the rocks; and then some basic soil flock.

Whilst I could spend more time making my own from scratch, I got a really good product from a responsive little enterprise that tailor made what I wanted. So big thumbs up for Urban Construct !
