10mm Vietnam Diorama
The prolific Carlos Briz has produced a rather nice 10mm diorama using TimeCast buildings, scenics and Riverine craft mixed in with some Pendraken 10mm Vietnam figures and vehicles. He also managed to find the space to include his trademark railway items! The water surface is remarkably effective.

Incidentally, it seems as if Carlos manages to knock out stunning dioramas every other day. To view more of his work visit his web site here: http://brigadatripeira.blogspot.pt

                              


6mm  Celtic Villages

We have recently completed a project for several 6mm Celtic Villages. The models were designed to include enclosing fences, crops and garden areas, livestock and general clutter to bring the models to life. We were very pleased with the results and are now able to offer the models as "buy it now" items. Each model will be individually designed and constructed so that each one will be unique.

Please note that the models include fencing, crops, gardens and foliage/landscaping, but NOT livestock, wagons etc.

For further details, or to discuss your requirements, please contact us on 01743 465676, or e-mail us at

Modern West German airport and urban terrain...

We had a long chat with the customer at the Vapnartak show this year and he asked about some custom made scenery for his mid-1980s NATO v WARACT games. Imparticular he wanted some urban terrain pieces (including some light industrial/commercial sections)  and an airport. An airport is is always a tricky proposition  - most airports are huge but have lots of open space around the runways, while the buildings (also usually very large) are clustered in one main part of the airfield. Anyway, we have to compromise with this one and reduce the overall footprint quite considerably to fit it on a tabletop. Have a look at the results and see what you think.

We also trialled a new range of 1:300 plastic cars and streetlights on the urban and industrial bases. We think they look very good when the are painted and modelled into the terrain.  As usual, click on the thumbnails for a larger picture...



6mm Scale European Walled Chateau...
Now available to buy on-line

Several years ago a customer asked us for a European Walled Chateau in 6mm scale. We used part of our Z Scale Naleumont station (ZC1) and combined it with some of the Belgian stone buildings from Range 6.  Finally we added a wall made from plastic card, a few trees, some foliage and static grass.

Since designing our original chateau we have had a number of requests for similar models. As a result we have settled on this design and can now offer the model as a "ready to buy"  item on our shopping cart:

Please note that each chateau is individually hand made and that there will be slight differences in colours and foliage, although the design and layout of the buildings will be the same. Please allow 12 weeks for delivery.

6mm Scale Italian Village - 1859

The brief for this order was to design some Italian village sections suitable for the Franco-Austrian War of 1859. We used one of our reference books on Italian Rural Architecture to ensure that the colours used in painting the model had the right feel for the location and period.

A Spanish Town in 6mm...

The brief for this model was to produce a Spanish town and farms for the Spanish Civil War period.  We used a mix of buildings from our 6mm Southern European range (Range 8), some French buildings from Range 1, and a couple of the French colonial style buildings from our 6mm SE Asian range (Range 28). The customer also wanted a walled vineyard and orchard - we used the new 6mm rough stone walls from Range 37.

The buildings give a definite Mediterranian feel to the model, while careful painting and blending of the pantiled roofs helps to unify the model.  The use of  a light sand colour for the roads and tracks, plus a brown tint to the static grass and flock, adds to the impression of a hot dry climate. Reminds me of my last holiday in Andalucia...

A 15mm scale Shanty Town...

David wanted a shanty town for his AK47 games. He decided that he wanted to use some of the model buildings from our 15mm scale SE Asian range (Range 30), and had chosen to add some etched brass palm trees to give the models a tropical feel. Apart from that we were given a free hand to produce the models - lots of rust and rubbish!

We found some photos of African shanty towns in old copies of National Geographic magazine (always a useful source of reference material) and used these help us recreate the rusting shacks and  rubbish strewn yards.

      


WW2 and Modern built up areas in 6mm scale...

The specification for this order was to produce a variety of town and village bases suitable for western Europe for both the WW2 and Cold War periods. The order included industrial areas, a town square and a couple of bases of battle damaged and destroyed buildings. David also wanted maximum detail - garden sheds, vegetable plots, garden fences etc.  David was very happy with the results and we were almost sorry to hand the finished models over - we'd have liked to have kept these for our own layout!

The buildings were selected from our 6mm western and eastern European ranges (Range 3 and Range 6), with a few extras from the Napoleonic (Range 20) and Modern Eurpoean (Range 23) ranges. Trees, fences etc were from our scenic accessories range (Range 37).
