Get your Clock out

Dug out this delightful little model which I picked up during our visit to Hornby Hobbies just after Christmas. Obviously it’s a Clocktower, which Hornby sell as a Jubilee Clock Tower. As you can see it’s slightly small for 28mm but will do very nicely, would fit 20mm rather perfectly but will be fine the the local campaign for VBCW.

Here’s a picture of the original, which is in 1/1 scale, in 1938. It was built to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Jubilee, although which one I haven’t a clue.

Some of the details are wrong, rather surprising given it’s source, but we’re still very happy with it and I’m tempted to fix machine guns into those portholes.

    Given the only thing out of scale is the door, you could put in a plinth and add height to the door that way. How much did it cost?

    Thats a pretty cool terrain piece. Its a pity its not a little bigger but for 20mm it sems fine. A good find!

    Aye I did consider doing just that Corey but it was greeted with raised eyebrows from the boy Slug.

    It cost £9.99.
