The first is another of the excellent 'Starfort' kits, beautifully cut in 3mm MDF, this weighty kit cost £21.00 and will represent a Normandy cafe with central archway. It contains no less than 19 sheets of 3mm board plus the usual lasered roof covers etc. It is clearly going to take some time to build, but I'm going to enjoy it. Like all mdf buildings I find inks or thinned paints are the way to go when painting.
After the above will follow a further three kits, these are via eBay. The standard 3mm mdf for this 28mm scale and first thing I noticed was that they all come nicely bagged up with all of the small parts already cut from the sheet. It can be a bit fiddly removing very small parts from the sheet so having them loose and fully cut out is a real bonus to me. Unlike the Starfort kit these all came with detailed construction diagrams. These are more generic buildings but no less fine for that.
|I spent a long time looking for storage for the three armies as they grow before getting the plastic boxes seen here, in time I may add magnetic basing to keep everything in place.|
|This is the T34/76mm version, still a formidable tank. Again a very simple kit to build.|
