pity won't be able to get there as at small Blackburn show with my WW1 layout. It used to only be a one day show, but they decided to make it a 2 day show(not sure if that is such a good idea).
Anyway, I have been looking at some similar lazer cut buildings for 28mm wargaming. are they the same make.

thanks, thought they might be the same. Amazed how something designed for 1/56 suits(28mm) suits 1/48. I was considering some of their accessories such as the wagon.
Need a word for the crossing between hobbies. Some might consider it 'cross-dressing'.
Considering how the game is possibly seen as more important than the actual models, those involved in games produce some quite good buildings. I have just ordered some castle/city building/church plastic kits for game players, but they look similar to some of the church ruins I got years ago from Games Workshop, and have used on my latest layout for 1/35 scale.

That building under construction has even more potential, and is very reasonably priced.
