28mm WW2 TT Combat Northern Europe Houses

 A couple of buildings from the excellent value TT Combat range

Both for use in early war games with Martin when lockdown comes to an end.

First up the two story Maison Amelie 

Absolute bargain at just £7. Upper floor and roof both removable. The top floor can be rotated/reversed. I "rendered" the walls with some ready mixed plaster mixed with a little PVA. The shutters (some of which need a touch up, looking at the pictures) are made from cardboard (provided with the kit).

Next up Maison Celeste.

Single story and just £5.  Annoyingly I've taken pictures with the roof on wonky - it's a good fit in reality, honest. Similarly rendered with ready mixed filler.
Both models painted with mostly emulsion tester pots.

Really pleased with both of these models. I've got the village bakery up next and will be ordering a couple more.
My only mild criticism is that the doors and windows have been sized to the figures, which makes them (to my eyes at least) a bit oversized for the ground scale. Always a tricky thing to get right with buildings in particular - make them right for ground scale and the figures won't fit through, make them to figure scale and they look oversized. Not something I'm going to lose sleep over and you really can't argue with the quality and price.
