Medieval Houses 1/72nd

This is one of a set of houses produced by Conny of  fredericus-rex.. There is a range of houses already available and many more planned. They come as a flat pack of Photoetched wood which you build and paint up yourself...real model making :-) Buildings with top floors can be seperated to allow acess to the rooms in which you can re-create medieval scenes of family life, the pub..whatever. Later, seperate doors, windows, stairs are planned.
The following house was built and painted by Conny and his wife..

The stonework!!  The woodwork!!! It´s hard to believe that these are made out of wood!!

I have seen these beauties for real and I can tell you they look EVEN better than in the pics.. An absolute must for every medieval or Fantasy fan.

Medieval Gun

The Zvezda Medieval Field Powder Artillery set is one of my favourite´s among the medieval sets. The bods can be used for a lot of different things. For instance the one loading can be given a pole arm, the one standing pointing can be cut in half and the top half made into a mounted bod. And the guns are just top class....a bit fiddly to construct but they look great and the barrels can be set to several elevations.
