I made this and the following range of 28mm buildings to accompany the "In Her Majesty's Name" set of wargaming rules by Craig Cartmell and Charles Murton, published by Osprey Wargames, and because I've been watching "Ripper Street" on that new-fangled television apparatus. They should suit any variety of Victorian building usage that needs a taste of the old East End, and many of the buildings will still be alive and kicking in 'Station Roads' up and down the country and so useful for train scenery building
I have designed this shop as an undertakers, but have included a blank front wall and signs so that you can design your own flavour
Note: This series of models does not condone murder, violence or other mayhem, and sightings of the Ripper should be reported to the Metropolitan Constabulary at Great Scotland Yard preferably via telephonic device on Whitehall 1212.
Pieces undercoated in gesso, badly painted in acrylics and varnished in matt soluble varnish, except for the windows (gloss)
How I Designed This
Most of the buildings have been taken from contemporary photos of the old Victorian East End of London, with one or two inspired by the sets of Ripper Street the TV series
