Getting ready for Team Yankee
A little over a month ago on Facebook I uploaded some cool photos of GameCraft 15mm Middle Eastern building provided from Stephen B. in Kent in the UK. Today he sent me 4 more photos showing his progress. Very impressive work.
New series of buildings coming to the site very soon. These will be ruined/damaged versions of kits we already produce. So these models can stand on their own or can be direct replacements on your game board to buildings that get damaged during the battle. The kits will retain the same part numbers as the non damaged version with the “-D’ suffix added to designate that they are damaged buildings. Below you will see photos of the -D versions or 15MMDF010, 011, 012, 013, and 014. These first units will be on the site later tonight and I should be able to add a few more every day. I’ll do this for the 15mm, 20mm and 28mm series.
New product added tonight,15mm Taco Bell restaurant.
Model measures 3.9″ x 6.5″ x 2.6″ tall (99mm x 165mm x 66mm)
Model is precision cut from 1/8″ (3mm) MDF with window frames and sign cut from 1/16″ (1.5mm) BassWood. The sign has very detailed, 3-dimensional letters and logo. The red brick roof pieces are resin castings that create a very realistic look.
20mm and 28mm versions will be added in a day or two, they are already designed, I just need to make the molds for the resin cast roof pieces. A 6mm solid resin cast model will follow.

Hi Allen. I just posted a brief guide on my blog on the process I used to make my Gamecraft Afghan buildings look more like mud brick. It may be of interest:
I really like the buildings I got. You make a good product!
Have a look at his blog to see how he applied the exterior finish to his MDF Afghan style buildings.
Click on the link above to read his blog post and see more photos, be sure to scroll all the way down and click on “Newer Post” to see the results.
For an alternate method of applying texture to middle east buildings you might want to also check out this YouTube video , it was made for FoamCore buildings, but the technique for using texture spray works the same on MDF buildings.
