I kept sing this building in old Napoleonic wargames pictures. I finally found one for myself and painted it up. More pictures on my Blog:

Yes, very nicely done. It should be a welcome addition to your battlefields.

Ah the good old "Thatched Cottage" by Airfix. Now poduced by Dapol I believe.

Their church is worth a look as well…even if it is very Anglo-Norman.

This cottage works very well for Northern France, although that was not my immediate reaction frankly. Try Googling "French Thatched Cottage" and see the images. Surprising that many still survive too. Great nostalgia trip. Mine was on a WWI airfield over 45 years ago

Very nice, these walled off buildings can turn out to be mini forts sometimes.

Thanks Deadhead. Did some image searches for both France and Germany. That makes me feel much better about using this model for battlefields on the continent as it were.
