The Story of a Railway station

A long time ago in a distant games room, playing BKC1 (or was it BKC2) I decided to buy and paint up 10mm WW2 Russians and Hungarians!!
Never mind that I had an abundance of 1/300 Russians (and others in that scale) or 20mm Russians (and others in that scale) for WW2; so I set about collecting 10mm scenery too!!

And some 10+ years later, on opening another unfinished box of Fieldworks buildings, yesterday to be precise, I am thinking "Why did I buy the Stalingrad railway station in 10mm scale?" (I dont know!) Today on coming to paint it up, I am thinking, its actually 15mm scale. (Again I dont know as the model was primed and ready to go and its original packaging, sadly, like Fieldworks itself, long gone.)
So you can help me decide! In the photos that follow you will see a 15mm horse drawn limber, from Russian Civil War figures for comparison. (Oh! And to confuse matters a base of 20mm Russian scouts in last photo!)

If you have glanced at recent postings you can see my terrain / building paint mojo is in full swing. Sadly this meant I didn't do my research before picking up the brush!! I only did any research to check time the station fell to the Germans for the first time at this battle! So I could paint the clock to this time! (As you do.) My research (limited in scale) showed me this building had appearance of a stone facade (probably concrete with render to look like stone), in a creamy colour. OOPS by then I had painted mine as brick! The photo I saw, showed a flatish roof with balistrade, my model had tiled apex roof! The central tower was higher and more slender too! But at least I got the clock tower the right colour (by accident!).
So below is this multi part kit, it has five buildings, each with separate lift off roof and lift out inner first floor.

I would happily use it in 20mm. Most of the fieldworks ruins I used to use were 15mm.
