Very nice :-* :-* :-*
Is it a kit or scratch built?
Thanks.

It is a Sarissa N110 Destroyed Small House from their Colonial/North Africa range (the front sheet for the N109 says the Tobruk range).

There are component shots here:
https://ultravanillasmurf.blogspot.com/2019/10/more-buildings-for-vietnam.html

It is similar to, but, strangely, not identical to the N109 building earlier in the thread.

I have another N109 and the three bay N117 under construction.

The nearest I am going to get to scratch building is when I get another N109 and put a roller shutter door on it to make a shop ^___^.

Air-con unit is a nice touch. Whole model looks great.

This is the second Sarissa N109 Colonial Small House for use either in Vietnam or Roanupur.


To differentiate this building from the other one, it has been fitted with a Crooked Dice air-conditioner.




At SELWG I ordered another one. This one is going to be converted into a shop.

Well done using Sarissa buildings.
I have be eyeing Sarissa's buildings for Vietnam also.
They would make excellent buildings  for parts of Hue.

I'm working my way through the Empress USMC and they are beautiful little figures and you've done them proud. I just have one question? What is the thing on the back of the marines helmet in the first picture. I really can't work out what it is.

I believe it's a toy bear

I think (based on peering at my photograph) it is a troll doll (and not an Infinity Stone).
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_doll

A quick trawl through Google Images did bring up a M60 gunner with a knitted doll.

It does need revisiting (I could not work it out at the time).

Thanks for that, I really couldn't work it out. I've seen the helmet with the plastic bull tooked under the helmet band but not the troll

Ah, that is the doll I saw earlier in another M60 gunner photograph.

Detail photographs (I wish I could see that well).




I need to remove that mould line through the doll.

And all the dust.

Good job I came across this or I wouldn’t have known either!  Of course now it’s pointed out it’s easy 🙄
