Looking for 15mm German Freikorps era buildings, prepainted, with lift off roofs. If no lift off roofs, then at least prepainted.

I believe Orange Scenics will work, but are there others?

You might have a look at some of the HO scale buildings by European manufacturers. Some of them are really beautiful, and I think they look great with 15s. They tend to be expensive. I got mine on the "previously-owned" table at my local hobby train shop and fortunately for me they were cheap because they were in bad shape and needed a lot of recovery work. Because they were used pieces, I did not see the names of the manufacturers. I used mine in my Germany 1945 Gallery surrounded by 15mm ruins (mainly by JR Miniatures). You can see them in pics 2, 25, 31, 32, 55, and 61 at link

Thanks, War in 15mm. I'll take a look at some HO stuff, but I am worried they might be a tad too large. 15mm is supposed to be 1/108 scale, so going as large as 1/87 might be pushing it, or no?

By the way, you have an excellent website. Really like all the things you have worked on in 15mm!

15mm is generally considered to be 1/100. Quite a lot of nominally 1/87 HO 'European' plastic buildings are actually closer to 1/100, especially the older models.
