Lovely work, but I am left wondering why there isn't a door (French Windows?) into the garden...?

Thanks very much chaps  :)

Yeah, I got a nice little book about them which is a great resource but the build was to the clients directions so I was a bit stuck to do anything 'larger'  :)

Always a challenge my friend.

 I had our 4 storey Maison particular 3D printed to 1/72 scale it is 36cm long and 29cm high, impractical for wargaming  if I add it with all of our surrounding Maison Particulars and the 17th century chateau opposite our house.

Cheers

Because it wasn’t a requirement.

Always a challenge my friend.

Certainly is  :) It would be an interesting exercise to do a ‘figure scale’ accurate building of this sort of size but it would be an absolute sod to store  lol

We live on  a French patrimone listed 18th square where all of the buildings were built between 1690 and 1740 I have thought about reprimanding for a Royal Catholic Armee vs French Republican skirmish, but storage is not a issue, just build time!

Very nice looking build. The punter can just tell himself it’s a security measure.
