Maison Allemande en Ruine

VAC-U-CAST 1/76 Scale Battlefield Accessory

Maison Allemande en Ruine, 1/76 Maquette VAC-U-Cast B-110

Generic scenery suitable for battlefield dioramas et simulation games en Europe centrale. La ruine représente approximately one quarter of the original building, avec most of the roof caved in. The side of the building which is left standing shows minor battlefield damage on the very corner, but the rest of the brickwork is immaculate. Using the point of a scalpel blade, the wall can be scored to look like it was hit by shrapnel.

Évaluation

  • Compatible avec 1/76 et 1/72 scale miniatures.
  • Easy to assemble, only five parts: Base avec sidewalk et curb, two wall sections, roof section et molding.
  • Polyurethane resin can be carved, drilled et sanded very easily.
  • Value for money, primarily because of the time saved in assembling the model. The building is perfect for diorama purposes, but joueurs de guerre will want to add a floor section inside, to allow the placement of figurines at the upper story window.
  • High quality casting, avec much detail et very little flash.
  • Tiny air inclusions on the roof section are barely noticeable. Larger holes on the inside need to be filled ou carved into a slightly irregular shape pour représenter shrapnel damage.
  • An internal floor section would have been a valuable addition.

Emploi Historique

  • Europe centrale, 19e et 20e Siècle.

Possibilités de Conversions

  • Without the sidewalk et curb, the building may be used in earlier periods.
  • For additional variety, a window can be carved into the wall section next to the door.
  • The slate roof section can be replaced by HO/OO scale terra cotta tiles available at model railroad hobby shops.

The building looks very appropriate alongside 1/72 scale miniatures, because it is not loaded avec detail which might otherwise draw the viewer's attention away from the figurines et véhicules in the scene. This is not a flimsy prop, the walls are just thick enough to give a good impression of what the house must have looked like before it was hit. Some interior detailing will be required to turn the ruin into a functional wargame model which can be occupied by defending troops et véhicules.
