I think the building is specifically made by Sarissa Precision, a household name in MDF buildings, for Italeri. The choice for 20mm buildings is rather limited compared to 15mm and 28mm. You'll find the classics like the Waterloo buildings or Rorke's drift and a lot of WW2 stuff but outside that it is slim pickings.

Italeri also sells some of the buildings from their sets individually but at a rather high price point (to the extend that buying them is almost as expensive as buying the set).

In my opinion it all has to do what is written in their contract. Italeri has first right and after some time Sarissa can sell them seperate. The El Alamein railway station is an example. Now you can buy it, a month ago I didn't see it there. And it is from 2018.

Just my five cents. ;-)

I must say, pretty impressed by the crispness of Italeri's ACW figures, especially considering these were initially released in the mid nineties.

When I retired my colleagues gave me gift voucher for a model shop in Antwerp. Yesterday I finally could go shopping there and the result can be seen in the next picture:

They sure were and not only for the gift voucher. I always say you get what you deserve. And it seems to me that I wasn't a bad boss for them! ;-) :-D

My unexpected pre-Christmas arrival from Models2U

I'm splitting the SAS/LRDG/FFL boxes with a friend, but I suspect I'll only use one sprue of each and put the other on ebay

At last! Ordered some Nappie Prussians, some Burgundian boys and Caesar Crusaders. And when I had finished ordering I realised that I didn't order the 7th Uhlans with the fiddler and the organ-grinder. Well, I realise that I really don't have much use for the Uhlans, would have been fun to have the musicians. But I think I can manage without them.

PIcked up an entire Sikh wars Indian army from Newline Designs as they're still on sale, in the hopes of perhaps converting them into a medieval Sikh army. We'll see how it goes, it's a lot of metal on my painting table.
