1/64 is not that much smaller than 1/55. Many of the old Lledo vehicles are used by 28mm wargamers.
Also remember people come in diffeent sizes, although many of those done for 28mm wargaming seem t ...

On checking Auhagen kit have, I notice it is English bond. Quite unusual for a continental building, as I would have expected it to be Flemish bond. At least it is still better than most OO scale bui ...

Checked ebay and they are not too expensive, and quite a few available.

I think 1/55 has far more potential. thanks to wargaming 28mm (offically scales out at 1/56), there are a lot of very nice (not too expensive) kits for accessories, and more every day. Good range for ...

Sad, two cancelations due to ill health. At least the substitutes look interesting.
If anyone else cancels I can always bring my French boxfile layout.
