this is the 1/72 italeri railway station which could easily be a large house.
it turns up on ebay at bargain prices on and off over the last few years.
Image
the annoying thing is that you only get about 30% of the required doors and shutters needed!
i had to make my own to fill in all the gaps, there is plenty of space on the sprues?
i stuck it on a 3mm base and added some fancing walls at the front and some standard s&s rendered walls for the sides and rear.
Image
the trees are from ebay and are designed to have foliage added so ideal for winter in nw europe,

ideal for the mayor of ambleve's house.
thanks for looking

Nice work, I chopped all the little arrows of my plastic trees first, it took quite some time but I thought it was worth the effort

That would be excellent as the front walls of a government building, etc

You know you would sell a lot more stuff if it was on your website ................... :ugeek:

You caught that frosty look with your building. More great work.
Pity about that bloody big hole in the roof. ;)

Fire-At-Will,

Great bare trees.

Shaun was right, I didnt see the arrows on his trees till your comment made me look again at his trees!!

If you want bare trees then yes cutting off arrow heads works.

I assume they are there to help arrest the foliage for those who want to foliate their trees?

I have some of these tree armatures in a box to cut down to make thorn bushes for Somalia and Sudan games circa 1880 to 1920s. So must see if they help or hinder my designs!

we have loads of building parts, walls, roads, roofs, stone & brick walling, far too much to list, we may get around to getting them on the webshop one day, it is a time factor, vehicles sell far better and quicker than terrain and terrain can be heavy making postage quite high.
thanks

How about just a paper list tacked onto the various forums/FB pages - sort like what Tony does with Raventhorpe.......

I`m sure it would create sales :D
