My Charlie Foxtrot Models Brasserie kit is complete! As I mentioned before, my intention was to make a 'tile' with outbuildings, etc. Here it is. The back garden even has a little fruit & veg patch.
I've added some signs to both the café and the outbuilding. I've also placed some of the bits and bobs I posted recently.
The basic idea is that the tile can be placed on a corner or junction.
The tiled area is just good quality printed card with a nice matte finish.
Here are a few shots of some of the extra components. First the large shed or outbuilding.
Pics of my brasserie can be found here. A couple of signs/adverts give a nice French theme.
Add a bit of mould and lichen on the roof!
Every café needs a suitable convenience... an outside w/c.
Here's the tile without the buildings or clutter. The brick piers and gate are from Charlie Foxtrot but pretty much everything else was scratch built. The walls are foam-core with individually carved tiles made from plasticard.
A closer look at the garden. The paths are just old masonry paint given a sandy/gritty paint scheme.
A couple of pics without the scenic clutter.
I've tried to strike a balance between a truly realistic looking model and a good piece of wargaming scenery. I could have added all sorts of extra scenic items and clutter but then I'd have struggled to place my miniatures in the terrain.
I hope you've enjoyed these couple of articles!
