Strategic targets

I just found these while rummaging around in my bits cupboard and thought I'd share an idea I had.
Last year I visited London (and enjoyed a few ales eh DC?) and grabbed a few of these resin buildings from a cheezy souvenir vendor for about 1 pound each. Lovely detail and pre-painted.


So, Buckingham Palace or French chateau? Tower of London or enemy fortified building? St Paul's Cathedral or enemy parliament house? A lick of paint round the edging, neglected so far I must admit, and some nice buildings are had very cheap for minimal effort!

Now if only I could find those Revell Hindenburgs (which DC put me onto) that I was looking for in the first place....

Check out Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines to find another VSF inspired use...

I picked up a similar souvenier from Malta a couple of years ago - the Mosta Dome (vanvlak will know all about this!)- I had plans for making it into an aerial fortress for Aeronef. Mortal Engines is good fun and yes, the ales were prolific!

Nice targets! I have a microscale version of DC I use for 1/285 scale microarmor.

I'd like to see both your models guys, always after new targets to bombard!

More ales need to be had DC, my turn to host!
