Antietam has always been my favorite battle to play.

Very good job.

Looks just like Dunker Church! Nice job.

Well, not quite. Has the same problem almost every model of the church has. Its rectangle.

The actual Dunker church is square (35 ft).

Also, windows are way to large.

Doesn't take away from being a good looking game.

Whilst JJ's church is generic it is an interesting point that the original is square.

The optics of the many pictures, past and present seem to give the impression of a rectangle.

I have actually visited this building and this was lost on me too even when I took a picture of my wife at the front door!

It still looked rectangular.

My edifice for Antietam was based on LOC pictures but somehow I missed the floor plan on a separate article.

Too late for my model but I am still happy with the way it looks.

Best wishes,
