Response to Simply magnificent

Hello Andy
Very good to hear that you are enjoying the build. I may try and get it to the London MAFVA show on 15th Oct if I can make it secure. As to your questions -

1 There are going to be some soldiers standing about maybe recovering kit and keeping a wary eye out lest the Germans return. There will also be some battle detritus, chiefly from the building on the corner to the left. And there are a couple of architectural features to add - there was a low ornamental chain surround to the area in front of the Mairie and a couple of street lamp pillars (the lamps appear to have been removed). I don't want to overcrowd it and I'm not too worried about leaving areas empty as that can tell a story too.

2 I've been debating what to do with the background and a tromp l'oeil may well work. Having trunkated the Mairie, it would depend on where I thought the perfect viewing point would be to get some form of perspective. If you don't get that sort of thing right it can look very wrong.

All the best

Dan
