Hi everyone - thought I'd just drop by and say hello. The names Mick, and apart from wargaming, I manufacture 6mm resin cast buildings specifically for wargames.

Generally my buildings are for WW2 and postwar periods, but will have a go at anything. Most of my stuff is naturally based on British structures, but I have recently expanded into Eastern European stuff. but enough for now, am looking forward to lots of chats in the forums so here we go ... cheers for now.

Hi

Those look great, could you let us know some rough prices on a couple of buildings so we can get a rough feel for the costs across the range?

Also not sure i you intend this to be a hobby thread or a trade post – if the latter let me or the other mods know and we'll move this to a more appropriate part of the forum.

Hi Mick and welcome. I have looked at your products recently and they look really good, i may be tempted soon.

Would it be possible to have a 6mm man/vehicle next to some of your stuff so that the size of the buildings may be judged in comparision to other manufacturers buildings that i already have. Or you could list model dimensions next to your pictures.

Cheers

Prices are listed, funnily enough - on the price list. (not being funny) The link is fourth from bottom. I may put the prices next to the buildings as well eventually.

I started the buildings as a hobby but also manufacture as a business now, so whichever you think suitable - both are relevant.

Hi - will sort an image or two out and post them asap, however, in the meantime, the dimensions of each building are listed just below the code number.

Nice stuff. Any chance of doing sci-fi buildings?

funnily enough have been looking into sci-fi but there seems to be a lot around and some of them I can't compete with - they look like they are 3D printed masters

unfortunately would mean starting from the very beginning again but you never know, it would depend on the market as to whether it would be worth it, but I promise I'll investigate.

A sorry didn't notice. Will look again.

I like the art-deco cinema - anything else with that styling?

Thanks - made the first one tonite - not a bad result, so should be released soon - no others yet but I'm looking at an art-deco style Dairy (common in the 60's) and an art-deco style garage from the same era in the future, just need some decent photographs to work from.

They look great Mick. They're true 6mm (1:285th)? Going by dimensions, I think the buildings are a touch too small for my personal taste (Epic scale) but the silos etc might work well. Thanks for posting this up.

Thanks for the comments - They are as near to 1/300th scale as I can get - based on standing figure of 6mm, door height is roughly 7mm, give or take (depends on how much I have to sand off the base to flatten it). I'm not sure what Epic scale is so I can't comment on that.
