|A Church (obviously)|
The alternatives at the time were generally "Faller" plastic kits, railway models (Airfix and Triang mainly at the time) or make your own.. At the time, the latter alternative wasn't on my agenda and if you saw my early buildings you'll understand why.
The came in a see-though flat pack and from my pecuniary outlook were very expensive.
They're small, probably 1/87th scale (suitable for 15mms) and are generally of an 18th century central European style and did include some famous buildings if memory serves.
There was one two or three models dependent upon the size of the model(s).
The photographs partially show a ruler for size and an 18th Century figure (a John Ray original -about 32mm tall).
The figure is slightly larger than my own forces and although obviously not in scale with the figure but these buildings were the mainstay of my collection for Seven Years War games with my "30mm" figures.
|The church again ( again a bit obvious)|
|The tallest building I have|
|View with ruler -it's on about a 3" square base.|
|Another larger building (probably based on a real one)|
|Rear view with ruler - approx 3" square base.|
|A shop of some sort|
|Very small, but perfectly formed|
|Another, with annoying turrets|
|Rear and side view|
|One of my favourites|
|Rear and side view (dust still in evidence)|
|Yet another (bored yet ?)|
|Extra boring rear and side view|
|Another great building imo, dust included !|
|These have some very good ideas for scrath-building|
|Great as a farmhouse|
|These models imo are also useful as for painting, there's that much detail on them.|
|Another townhouse with a damn turret|
|Note the damage to the gable end top ! (they are a bit delicate)|
|Most were reinforced with balsa, but not duplicates I'd accidentally bought !|
|The whole ensemble, occupying about a two foot square)|
That's it then from me for another week, one in which again I've managed to achieve nothing save for doing this blog!
Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you've found something of interest in my museum of curiosities (see last week's comments for explanation).
As always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
