I started these after finding Gary Chalks article on Yahoo forums and thought I would give them ago. This is stage one three buildings. Stage two is a single larger structure seen in the background at times and stage three is the church. In the future structures such as a rail station (so it can be used for WW2 Mediterranean scenarios), fort and governors residence. At this stage they can be used for games in the Caribbean or pressed into service for Peninsular War games using 'Sharpe Practice' rules or when I get my hands on a copy 'Legends of the High Seas'.
The building have a shell of foam core covered with poly filler. Windows, trellises and doors are made of balsa while the "terracotta" tile roofs are corduroy cloth over a balsa base. Other elements include Woodland Scenics foliage clusters and Faller cobblestones.
