It could be surprising to see those buildings in the "Old West" section, but I think that they could be interesting for Old West too, mostly (?) the Log House.
I add a picture with 1/72 figures, I didn't try with 28mm, but maybe it could be good too ?

I think they look old west, if anything. They certainly don't resemble anything I've seen in Russia…

Very nice paint jobs!

You mean houses like these.

They seem to have been pretty common from the 1800's thru the mid 20th Century.

Thanks,

John

thanks Jeff and John,
PEGASUS is a serious manufacturer with a lot of work before the boxes can be bought !
I can't imagine that those houses are not "Russian" ones!
but I can imagine another use of them !!
(my STRELETS "cow-boys" think that they are good for them!)

You can of course use them as old west cabins but two things make them stand out as not western cabins, thatch wasn't used in the west and in western cabins the chimney was almost always outside of the cabin.

That's right!
it's always the problem with western : we imagine always the houses like old ones, with weathering!
I've tried to do something not too "old" but it's not easy, I suppose that it must be clearer?
for the chimney, in fact it's not a real problem because it's always possible to add a scratchbuilt one ?

(it's the same problem with middle-ages buildings, they don't look really like they were… for example the churches were often full of colours on the walls and even on the facades!)

Thanks for your advice!
(and the roof ?? not sure that they were like that ?)
