Any suggestions for suitable models for a French Plantation house in 28mm? I am looking for the planter's house, not hooches for the workers.

I would look at WWI ranges. I did a lot of research about French Indo China and they built and built in Beaux Arts style, so the scene has an incongruous feel. I remember seeing a villa/chateaux in the jungle in Vietnam. I'll see if I can find the link. Maybe it's in Corbis.

Thanks for the pointers. The WCP buildings certainly look very nice but I would have to save up my pennies!

I have also been directed to the Malaya Emergencies Planter's House by Britannia, now avaiable from Grubby Tanks.
