A few more buildings

As i've been busily making new buildings to get cast and trying to clear my bench of painting orders, I thought I'd better post a few pics.

These buildings are all 28mm and were made as one offs.

They have removeable roofs and separate doors.

This should give you an idea of what sort of things are in the pipeline

Farmhouse castings have arrived!!

First box of castings has arrived.
Only about 5 left
Full price posted will be £17.50
Email me if interested

Tuesday, 11 May 2010

Looks like I need to say what i've got in mind for future releases.
Firstly, a barn and pigstys to go with the farmhouse model.
If there's enough interest, alternative roofs for the farmhouse.

British buildings planned-
Village pub
Post Office
Half-timbered buildings ( WotR onwards)

Small bits and pieces such as post boxes, dustbins, phone boxes etc

Any suggestions are very welcome

Get in touch if you're interested

Irish farmhouse to be ready this week!

Been assured I will have castings ready for Falkirk show Sat 8th May.
Price will be £15 plus postage at cost.
As soon as I have castings with me, I will post here.
Typing this as I plan the next couple of buildings, neither are what I said they would likely be, but they should be nice models!
Only clue is that they will have a more ' British' flavour!

Resin buildings update

Looks like the Irish farmhouse model will be available early May.
Should be available at Cannonade in Falkirk.
Price, barring any major casting price hikes, will be £15

To follow this there will be a barn, pig stys and possibly some walling too.
After this will be French buildings, aimed at WW1, but useable from the early 1800's onwards.Also thinking of making some ' British' models, aimed at the VBCW market, but useble for operation Sealion etc. Maybe with some shutters etc, they could be used for France/Northern Europe too.

Pics will follow

1/144 Normandy bunkers

Recently finished these resin models.
Think they're from the Pendraken range, painted up nice.
Probably should be camoflauged, but customer wanted them grey.
LOADS more to follow with this project, including a 1/144 Fletcher class destroyer( all 70cm of it!)

Shelves fitted, extractor fitted, machinery fixed to table except saw( moveable)
Shelves already starting to fill up too quickly!
Plenty of sorting and organising still

Shed workspace!

finally got round to making the shed into a proper workshop!
Fitted 2 strip lights and plug sockets, plenty of drawers( storage) and now got room for saw, lathe and miling machine.
Since these pics were taken i've added shelving and an extractor hood for spraying, and the clock go forwards tomorrow, so more daylight painting time!!

African hut update

After chatting with Northstar, it seems the next two models will be a destryed hut and a burnt-out hut. Then maybe a couple of 'villagey' bits and a more 'traditional' style hut.
Hopefully start work on these soon, keep watching!

Small scale stuff

1/144 scale French village. Created to show the new Wargames South US infantry.
The whole base is about 10cm x 8cm. Unfortunately the pics don't show the smaller details such as telephone wires

Anderson Shelter

Something a bit different. Working at the local Primary, the P7 calss' topic was WW2.
They were tasked to make Anderson shelter models. To help them visualise the scale of them, I made this model. It is 1/32, as I have lots of Airfix multipose bits around and the rest is scratchbuilt. Gave them a good idea of just how small they were!
