Resin Buildings

Excellent little numbers by Frontline



The roof of each model is interchangeable. I'm happy these will suit multiple eras and theatres.

Update

So, finally got a few pieces to work on and have started a couple of mini projects, more later. These kits in the pictures are all 1/35 scale


This is from the collection of my friend Billy in Brisbane. His interests in this scale include: aircraft, vehicles and infantry, with the odd diorama as well.

New Buildings

All my kit is still to arrive. But I got x5 colours from the local toy shop and here what I finished up with...


These two are Airfix. Far too expensive for what they are :(



This last one is by Frontline

Dave's buildings continued

                    A few pictures of Dave's ruined city work in progress, for his Stalingrad project



These have a medium sized footprint and represent a block of building that would a full company to occupy




Coming along nicely I am sure you will all agree!

20mm Jungle Hut

Another very good resin building by Frontline 



Good for any jungle scenery, any era



Accurate sized footprint and very good value for money.

Shelters

Just your average bog-standard garden shed variety shelter really...



These are one piece resin models by Frontline; actually, from their small range of Sealion items in 20mm



Simple but really tidy little models, about AUD$10.

WW2 Indian Infantry Battalion

I've had this group a while but have had them out recently for a touch up


Based for CD3 1941-45



These were painted with Tamiya acrylics 





The battalion has two figures by Atlantic and several others as well.
