More buildings

More Buildings

French Town House

Resin model by Byzantium Models
The front paving and rear wall w/gate are also theirs, with the rest of the garden walls made from biys of Matchbox diorama.





Another ruin

Started life as this Airfix building

Now looks like this -

 Front walls are left over bits of Britain`s farm walls, the gate arch is Matchbox
 Quite pleased with the shell hole in the front garden

 Rear garden walls by Tamiya

 Partial roof removable
As are the stairs and partial first floor

Watch tower

Watch Tower

Not so useful in modern conflicts with automatic weapons and long range rifles, but still used in Vietnam to get a high perspective for fire-bases. 

I designed this one for an artillery observation platform for our Rif War games.

It got totally smashed up in storage, so i`ve rebuilt it, repainted and fixed the base.

Two halves make a whole



Queens Hussar resin street barricade (this now available through Lancer I think?)

Ruined shop

About a weeks work, using techniques and ideas I`ve used on the other ones I`ve been working on.

Airfix village shop kit (30+ yrs old) ruined as per the various ones I`ve done over the past months, i added the partial upper floor; Matchbox paving, garden walls built from parts of La Haye Sant, outside loo from Willis Modelcraft, the path comes on a roll (railway modelling stuff) all based up and painted up




The roof guttering was a piece of broken umbrella frame I found in the street

Yet more refurbished buildings

Another couple of days work

This first one is another of my own cobbled together ruins made from various Matchbox diorama bits
During the re-furb I added some internal walls and signs/posters 





This one is another of those plaster diorama pieces which I expanded on using bits from an Esci vac-u-form battleground and cardboard dungeon floorplans.

I added the various clutter, floorboards  and barricades, the sandbagged roof and buttress are resin pieces from Village Green. During the re-furb I re-based and painted the whole thing, added more clutter and finally built the partial tiled rood using bits left over from La Haye Sant
