1940s French garage

Partly inspired by Nick Skinner's marvellous conversion and partly by a desire to bring more detail to the table I've set about creating a garage based around Charlie Foxtrot Model's MDF 'Workshop' building in 20mm. Just as suitable for France 1940 as it will be for Normandy, I hope to get lots of use out of it. There's a full step by step guide through the build here https://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com ... arage.html

Also found the post inspiring. If like me you followed up on the reference to the Scale Link pump set and found yourself in a very hard to navigate, old style web site, then you might find this link helpful:

https://www.scalelink.co.uk/acatalog/Sc ... O_-p1.html

This takes you to right part of the catalogue, the pump set is on page 2. Navigation between pages is only at the top of the page :roll: .

My set is in bound, along with the CF workshop (and another building I had my eye on).

Fabulous garage, really colourful. Reminds me of the Scripps' establishment in 'Heartbeat'. I love it and this part of the hobby generally. I would be tempted to put a rusty car on bricks out back with maybe some chicken nests on the back seat, but that would probably be OTT.

The website is a nightmare but the Scale Link stuff is terrific. I've been using it since the 80's. As well as the 'architectural' stuff, the period cars are really useful and (for the REAL modellers out there - and that's not me, I hasten to add) stuff for super-detailing models with spoked wheels and such like. Also they do (or at least did) a range of etched brass foliage which makes gives amazing results if you have the patience.

While not my thing, I am in awe of their 1/32 WW! range which includes things like narrow gauge railways as well as fully equipped troops and guns.

The freebie posters from Sarissa might be something to add also

Superb garage - also just seen the culverts, they are excellent as well. You've given me a real sense of table-envy!!!

Between him and John Bond, it's hard not have table envy. Working on it though. It's just a matter of getting the tools set up, then making time, none of the techniques are too difficult - and I'm expecting the book on making Mediterranean tables to drop any day now, just to distract me.
