The thoughts and games of ageing wargamers
I've gone a different route for my S Range Franco Prussian War - I've bought up built German HO model railway kits, quite a big investment but with careful selection they give a very pleasing and consistent look
Hi I have seen the pictures on your blog and love the buildings. Did a search online to try to find them looked at Faher (?) but couldn't find them.
Hi. There are a few German makes for HO buildings. They are quite expensive new, but can be found on auction sites. The name you are looking for is probably Faller.
Mine are all either Vollmer or Kibri. Just search eBay for "Vollmer HO" or "Kibri HO" to avoid all the N gauge ones. Then choose the ones that look 19th Century. I've finished buying them now so there should be less competition!
I'm not sure if it was clear from my first post I buy them built - this saves the bother of putting them together and can be cheaper than new. Keep a careful eye on the shipping costs as the sellers can be from all over the world
Hi both, Many thanks for the tips, much appreciated and the correct spelling of the names.
