Gunfight at the OK corral Tombstone range.

The famous gunfight took place at the side of the Flys Photographic Gallery and this model represents this building. It was also a boarding house ran by Mrs Fly. Its most famous resident was Doc Holliday. The photographic studio was located in the building at the rear. As with other models in this range it is supplied with pre painted parts.

Also new is a set of 8 sign boards for Old west buildings as shown below. These are supplied unpainted.

15mm Spanish/Italian villa commission and 28mm ACW commission.10mm ruins.

15mm Spanish/Italian villa commission.

I made this for a customer who saw the 28mm version and wanted a similar model in 15mm

It's the model kit plastered and painted. As can be seen the roof and walls have been weathered. The base has been left with a brown undercoat as the customer wants to texture it to match in with his other models.

The roofs come off and floors also come out. Original model from our 15mm Spanish/Italian range

28mm ACW commission models.

A customer in the US is building Gettysburg in 28mm and has asked for several buildings over the last couple of years. The latest request was for the Carrie Sheads house.

At time of the battle, it was also the home of Oakridge Seminary, a school for girls. Carrie Sheads was the school's principal, the house is often confused with the Female Seminary of Gettysburg, or other such schools in Gettysburg. During the battle it was used as a hospital and soldiers from both sides were cared for at the house.

This model is done in white brick as withe the house as it is today but i suspect at the time of the battle it may have been a natural brick colour.

This was a complicated model to do as the front and rear porches were different sizes and it took me awhile to work this out!!!! It will take soome tweaking before it can be released in kit form but once done it will be offered in white or red brick versions.

The model base will be textured by the customer.
 This was part of a batch of 10 models which included 3 versions, brick, stone and clapboard, of the Thompson house. This house was located on Seminary ridge and was Lee's headquarters. This model will be available next week .The other models in the photograph below can be found 28mm ACW/Old West
