SCRATCH BUILT MDF EARLY WAR FRENCH GARAGE Part 1

Post by JOHN BOND 001 »

I blame Lardy Nick who first posted his French garage, followed by the Tactical painter, Smart wargamer and finally the Wargaming Table for convincing me that I too needed one.

Excellent, just needs an overweight bloke in overalls with a Gallouise hanging out of the corner of his mouth.

Amazing that the spanner, pump, etc are all scratch built too!

Those pumps could be deceptively tall — something like 9 or 10 feet. Lots of photos on the web showing them towering over passing pedestrians. Also, the first pumps were typically set up outside pharmacies, as a profitable sideline. From the 1880s well into the 1920s in some countries, petrol was sold by pharmacists/chemists in bottles, just like buying glycerine or antiseptic.

Lovely, but if folks didn't want to scratch build, the Mango garage makes a nice shell:

If you are doing 28mm, then the 1st Corps set is very nice:
