This time, I've once again fallen back on my 54mm western buildings, all built sometime in the late 60's and early seventies.
"Flanagan's" was a general store and the first model I'd built for the my western games and the first to see action.
The shelves were mostly barren, but a few pieces from 'Timpo', 'Scalextrix' and some scratch-built items were present.
Probably not my finest work, but I was only 17 or so when this was built.
It was names "Flanagan's" as this was a freebie sign in the skirmish rules I played at the time.
|Some of the bits from inside the store,|
|Display case - note the unpainted Winchester !|
|Counter, shelves and dust - lots of dust !|
The following model had it roots in Britains' "Silver Dollar Saloon" and you may notice the attachment for the bat-wing doors still present !
|Phil Mc Cavity's dentistry and tonsorial parlour|
|Side view showing more dust,|
|Dust, the result of having sat in the same place for 30+ years.|
|Top floor interior (all scratch-built save for the tool bench)|
|Ground floor interior - can't remember what was sold here though !|
|Rear view (obligatory boring picture)|
|Three-quarter view (Padding - Ed.)|
|Where I store my western stuff - 6' ladder tips just visible|
|Date of first group meeting, with yellowed paper|
The habit of recording every meeting's attendance and game sadly went into disuse less than a year after the group started.

Thanks for taking the time to visit, as always your comments are welcomed and truly appreciated.
(On a side note 'Explorer' highlights spelling errors - score! I'm also desperately trying to keep up with the blogs I comment on, so apologies if I miss any!)
