@ José GarCas: they do look nice, but to my regret I don’t speak or read Spanish.
An important question is fo course: what are the prices?

Wonderful looking Mazanka & Dacha. :shock: :love:
Indeed, very useful for 19th & 20th century rural eastern Europe (Russia & Ukraine).
Napoleonic Wars to WWII. They would be perfectly suitable for WWI & RCW, which are two of my key areas.
Would love to add some to my Pegasus & MiniArt plastic buildings (although some are different types).
Thats why I would like to learn more about the used material, fitting precision, shipping conditions and general prices before rushing forward?

Was actually hoping that Fredericus Rex would consider rural eastern european subjects, but the more competition the merrier. :yeah: ;-)

Welcome to the forum (which should benefit from participating companies in several ways, hint hint ;-) ) and thanks for sharing this. :thumbup:

Russian house - this is not a peasant, not a rural house. In the Village, all the peasants (perhaps except for the village priest) kept domestic animals in a part of the house called the “yard”, this part was under a common roof with a dwelling. this was done both to save heat (cold in Russia)), and in symbolism with Noah's Ark. A very wide separate door led to this part of the house, for a horse, a cow, a sheep. There is no such thing. This is a town house, as it is written on boxart.

Of course you're right, Alex. :yeah:
It is suitable for smaller or bigger towns & suburbs.

When I imagine scenes in large towns or cities, I think of Moscow, Sankt-Peterburg, Kiev, Minsk, Kharkiv, Tsaritsyn/Stalingrad, Odessa and the like.
Traditionally a more bourgeois/middle-class and industrialised setting.

Also finishing the facade with a flat board fashion to be only at the end of the 19th century. When sawmills began to be used with discs, arranged as water mills. (water moved mechanisms) Prior to this, the entire flat board was applied to the roof and decorative elements. they were made in Russia with the help of an ax and not a plane.
However, in 1784, a royal decree prohibited the use of such a board for construction - as there was a lot of waste - 1-2-3 boards could be made from a single shaft. It was ordered to saw along. But the blows of the ax make the surface of the tree more dense, while the sawing makes it more loose. Therefore, many boards made with an ax were then decorated with carvings - this was allowed)))

However, I want to say that I'm not a bore, just if you see Napoleon in sneakers - it is embarrassing.
And the houses made by Jose are very beautiful and they need proper use.

Hello Marc!!.
Thank you for your words. I think you mean to our website, right?. You only have to click in an entry and there you find a text in english. Anyway, you can see more pics of our houses here..

An important question is fo course: what are the prices?

That's a good cuestion.. We don't have online shop yet, so we depend on sellers (we're searching sellers for our products so if some shop owner read this and has interest, we're at your disposal). I think 72001 could be sould to collectors for about 40-45€ and the 72002 for 25-30€ before taxes. But the final price depends on the seller.

Best regards

Thank you Alex, we're glad you like our kits. Your models are a big inspiration for us :notworthy:
And yes, our houses are designed mainly for dioramas of the WW2, they could look great with some vehicles close of them, but if Napoleon wants to spend the night in our village house we're nobody to deny it to L'empereur ;-)

Hello Erich!!

Thank you for your kind words. :-D
Answering to your cuestions they are made on resin, and belive me, the different parts fit perfectly and you only have to sand a little bit to get a perfect finish.

Always good to see look through windows in houses.
Doors that open are a good option too when figures are being placed.BB
