Come on, guys. I need some inspiration.

Let's see your 15-18mm or even HO scale Spanish or Latin American Hacienda structures and enclosures! Please post some pics here for us all to see.

A) Did you make your own buildings, or buy them?
B) If bought, then where?
C) If scratchbuilt, got tips, warnings or other ideas?

PS. Also, I don't know of anyone who makes any arched hacienda-like buildings with removable roofs in MDF for 15-18mm or even HO scale, please let me know.

"D" is the answer. Don't have any.

Ha ha, good one! :)


PS. This hacienda might be a tad too big for my table:

Salutations! has 'Desert Village' and 'Desert Fortress' 'print and assemble' models from

Don' know if they'd fit your image of'hacienda', but m'as'well take a look.

Hi CC,
Although this scratch built hacienda is 25mm scale and not 15mm, I thought it might be helpful. Howard Whitehouse made this for me many moons ago. I use it, and other Spanish-style buildings he made for me, in Napoleonic skirmish games featuring Sharpe, Harper and the rest of the cast.

That looks fantastic! I wonder if he used foamboard or cork tiles for the walls. Or perhaps even balsa, but with a good "stucco" pattern done to cover the building material. Can you tell which he might have used?


PS. I just noticed that there's another topic going round with information that might be useful to this potential project of mine:

Wow, this guy's work is unbelievable:

I don't think Howard used foam board or balsa. It might be that old cork kinda board. It's kind of heavy.
