Whilst my blog entries state otherwise I feel I've achieved quite a lot recently. One problem has been the inaccessibility of my computer and another being my physical state. Even with my wife's super expensive digital SLR I have been too shaky recently to take a decent photograph.
I have however managed to increase my 4Ground scenery collection by building the hotel I bought with my eBay profits.
It is, as you would expect from 4Ground, a brilliant kit with lots of details. It is composed of 4 main parts: The Hotel, the cookhouse, coaching barn and the courtyard. It comes neatly boxed with each individual part bagged up, labelled and with instructions. It also comes with a bag of elastic bands and clothes pegs. I really like this, it shows a great level of customer service (4Ground are an excellent company to deal with) and forward thinking.
|It's a large and impressive building that will be a great OP or field headquarters for some of my chaps.|
|Lots of |
|It has a porch with 3 different signs to choose from.|
|Separate back steps that fit into holes in the courtyard.|
|And front steps too.|
|Three floors with plenty of room for chaps and a tunnel leading to the courtyard and coaching barn.|
|The separate courtyard allows you to place the buildings as intended or just ignore and set out how you like.|
|Small cookhouse as an extension onto the main building.|
|Not exactly roomy but a good number of windows.|
|Coaching stable with enough room for a coach and some horses.|
I can't rate 4Grounds stuff enough and I'm really looking forward to a Manor House, Windmill, Water mill or whatever they bring out next.
Hopefully the rain/wind/gloom will clear at some point and I'll be able to post some pictures of my 15mm germans, a few bits of 28mm and my growing Full Thrust fleet (including some classic starforce ships and a scratch built one too).
Thanks for taking the time,
