Russian Izba. No 1

What can I say. Some terrain for the WW2 20mm, a Russian Izba.

The main model is from Pegasus Hobbies. Got mine off Amazon and contains two models in the box. This is the larger house and consists of nine parts. Easy to put together and I think well detailed.

The fence and outhouse are from Wills/Ratio railway scenery range, The veggies are from a company called JTT which I picked up from here Howard Scenic Supplies. The cabbages and broccoli models are probably big enough to be used for 28mm scenery. The rest is a mix of Gamers Grass tufts (These are my favourite grass tufts, have a good range ) and Silflor/MiniNatur  tufts, which should need no introduction. The tools are from FALLER railway scenery which I ordered from the same place as the JTT.

The only thing you don't get with the model house is a floor. So I made one from 1mm plasticard.

What more can I say. I've been a bit rough and ready with this model. But I think it looks okay. For the base earth I used Vallejo Brown Earth Texture.

It makes the job quick and easy.

That's it for now. More to follow soon....
