We got a question regarding the log house in the recent AAR here
This is one of many new buildings to come. The idea is to make generic log houses that can be used for a number of different periods and settings. Also, log houses have historically been quite common in Sweden, being a forest dominated country, so they seemed like an obvious place to start when we decided to update our scenery.
Its based on the Pegasus hobbies 1/72 scale WW2 "Russian Log Houses" found here. An excellent kit with detailed hard plastic walls.
To make it a bit more "Scandinavian" and from an earlier date we changed the angle of the roof and removed almost all windows. The windows were removed with green stuff and a singe small airvent was cut in one of the walls. We also put a turf roof on. The result is satisfying and production was simple enough for more to come.
Here is a WIP picture that shows the changes made to the basic structure and the removed windows. With a 28mm miniature for scale.
