Part 6 of 6 – Buildings & Fortifications

At last, I’m in the home stretch.  With all the figures painted along with the half-track, I have the buildings from the starter set to finish off and some fortifications for scenery.

I started with the farm buildings and the assembly was straightforward.  These buildings are a little finicky to put together.  Not difficult, but the fit won’t be perfect.  I didn’t sweat it for these, and once the paint is on most folks won’t notice little gaps etc.
