One of our own, a modeler and diorama builder had realized his dream and made his hobby a full time paying ''gig''. Many of us would love to do that. Well check out the great road pieces he has produced. They come with a bit of a twist - component integration of all his pieces.

Check out the review and take a close look at the pictures.

Thanks to Gary at Smith Military Modeling for the products and the support.

I have not seen these first hand, but they look mighty fine. I'm glad to see that they also have a cobblestone
road, as most of the in-town roads I have seen in France were stone not brick. They are slightly shorter than typical bricks .and usually have a humped effect (probably to help them drain). I used a small resin section to make a rubber mold for longer streets cast with plaster of paris, but this is not as neat as Smith's interlocking sections (my joints look like joints!). I hope they make some unwrecked buildings also, as there seems to be a real shortage. One would think that Europe was nothing but fields of rubble, as some parts were, but not the whole area.

Hey Scott,
thanks for the input, there are a few untouched walls available, and many more on the way. some even solid so you can choose the doors and windows. i had hoped someone would use these i like to see everyones creative side instead of just using whats given to them, thats part of why the company was started. there are also many road variations on the site with many more on the way.

thanks for looking,
Gary Smith
