Your new additions look great.
I was wondering about the back ground  building.
It looks like his work.
Tell Jeff, "Hi" for me if you would please.
Love the thinking for the back stories that you can use for your characters.

Good eye, Marine! Yes, that is one of about 5 buildings (and a gunboat) that I bought from Jeff about 7 years ago when he was selling off some of his stuff. The buildings he made will appear in Parador in this and other table setups in the future:



Here is a closer look at 3 of Jeff's buildings behind my Spartan Executive diecast airplane:



The building at right will serve, depending on the scenario, as a hotel, as a monastery (the monks in this image will appear in Parador), or as a police barracks. I will likely need to get a couple more different churches so that I won't need to use this one everywhere.

There are more buildings in this image as background to the Texaco Grumman Goose.



As a nod to the Chaco War, which was thought to be a proxy war between Standard Oil (supporting Bolivia) and Royal Dutch Shell (supporting Paraguay), the Texas Oil Company (Texaco) will be active in Parador exploring for oil. That's my excuse. Really, there are simply lots of diecast airplane models available that are painted up with Texaco markings. I'd rather use them as they are painted. Here's a Curtis Robin in Texaco colors, and a black painted Buhl Sesquiplane (the Spokane Sun God) with Texaco markings:





There will be pilots and mechanics involved. Most of the airplane models I'm going to use carry a few passengers, so they can transport a Pulp Alley League.
Sailors have more fun!
