Nice-looking model. Should be on the War of 1812 board though, no? – Wiki seems to think this style of house is US-only.

I always thought salt block houses was more a Euro thing.

Old Smokie, 10mm? Sure hey presto!


This model is from my own collection. I can work to put a kit up for sale, though.

4th, You're right about the term "saltbox". I simply appropriate the most well known term for a 'hall and parlour/barn' type house. TimeCast sell a house with barn annex in their Leipzig range. I have a farmhouse in my 3mm Spanish range.


And a house in my 3mm Essling range.

Rallynow, there are areas and circles in which "New England Salt Box" is pretty much one word. I've got books on "tiny houses" which spend a chapter on them. But a lot of traditional New England styles have roots in East Anglia.

Thanks for doing these, Going to look great on the Battle field of Aspern Essling.
Well done hope to see more of the buildings later.

Great buildings. I'll have to keep an eye on what you bring out in 15mm :)
