Richard Durnford from Bristol sent in these pictures of the "Water Feature". I had this set of Airfix French Napoleonics in 1/35th scale as a child. Richard has given this vintage model a fresh paint job and it looks great standing above the koi pond with aquatic plants. The "Water Feature" looks great on a Cigar Box cobbled street battlemat. Take a close look at the tiles around the pond...all done with a spray can I am told......this I must try.
Arthur van der Ster from the Netherlands mailed me these pictures of his "Tidewater Home" with a customised tiled roof, based and fully "planted" and topped with a great paint job...NICE. Arthur is an editor for the ACW Gamer Ezine which is brimming with interesting articles and modelling eye-candy well worth a subscription if ACW is your period. http://www.acwgamer.com
Tym Corbett let me take a  quick picture of his  "Long Dial Counter"  when I met him at the WMMS at the weekend. The downed cavalryman and horse by Perry Miniatures.
Matt Owens-Smith is campaigning Normandy 1944. I am so pleased to see my mate using Charlie Foxtrot Models in his layout. Details of his expliots can be followed on http://thewargamestable.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/our-normandy-campaign-kicks-off.html
Michal Pokorny from Benesov in the Czech Republic has delivered the goods again. More work on his "Eastern Front" collection. This time, Rural House 1 and Rural House 4. Both kits have had additional roof detail added. Again, top quality conversion work. More of Michal's modelling & painting can be viewed in the Blog on this site. Michal has kindly provided English subtitles to a few videos he has made. I really am lost for words. Thanks Michal.
Marc Coupland from Exeter has completed the first two of his Charlie Foxtrot Models collection. Eastern Front "Rural 2" and "Ruined House 2". Marc makes his stamp on the models by applying a really nice paint job and the addition of snow and a garden with rubble pile. The weathering on the roof tops is top quality work..thanks Marc. 

Michal Pokorny from Benesov in the Czech Republic sent these in through my Facebook Page. "Eastern Front Rural House 2" has had a make over. Michal has added, card roof tiles, a new handrail, logs under the stairs and my favourite customised bit: smoke from the chimney. This top quality conversion has benefitted from a great paintjob too. This kit is just one of a collection of Charlie Foxtrot Models owned by Michal. I hope to post pictures when his table is complete...a real piece of eye candy, it the first model is anything to go by. Thanks Michal.

News Update: Michal has done a video on this kit and it can be viewd in the Blog!

Ron Kruzie from Seattle USA sent in this picture collection. Wow....it is the attention to detail that make this table fantastic..the more you look the more you see. Truly outstanding. Charlie Foxtrot Models throughout...the bar is getting higher.
Patch Guilfoyle - Coombes ran a demo game called "Muzzle Flash" produced by Grenzer Games at a recent show. Patch kindly let me "lift" a few choice pictures from his coverage.....if I am not mistaken, all buildings are by www.charliefoxtrotmodels.com on a Cigar Box mat (if identifiied correctly) with Patch's paintjob they look fantastic. For more info on the game please visit  http://www.grenzergames.co/muzzle_flash_home
 
 James from Gloucestershire has done a very nice job on his "Pond 1" the addition of ducks is a very nice touch. Note the wake painted on make the ducks look very animated. Real depth has been achieved in the water ...top quality work James. 

 

Keith Phillips from Devon was chatting with me on e-mail and attched this picture of a recent game of Bolt Action. Keith's impressive table has no less than nine Charlie Foxtrot Models.

Stewart Watt from New Alresford in Hampshire (I cannot believe we go back 27 years) sent me these pics via Facebook. They are from a recent game where, I am glad to see, Charlie Foxtrot Models "Stone Walls" are providing cover for his 28mm Russians. This is the first painted set I have seen...so happy they came out well. Cheers mate.

 

Steve Webb from Bristol sent in these really nice "Tabac" pictures. It is hard to tell these are the 20mm versions of the build. Good to see the textured wall and tiled roof bringing the kit to life. Thanks Steve, I would like to post more of your colelction in due course.

 

Nick Hawkins from Willingham Cambridgeshire sent in these really inspiring pictures of his Sharp Practise II Flintloque army. The layout comprises of Charlie Foxtrot Models Rural buildings 1 to 4 and post & rail fences (in picture 1). Razed 1 & 2 are looking very effective in picture 2. I really should work on my  weathering, these chimney stacks look so much better than mine. Good work Nick, thanks for posting.
Scott Lines from Purbeck in Dorset, mailed me these images of his Eastern Front Church. Scott has taken the trouble of cladding the model with coffee stirrer planks and using waney edge cardboard to plank the roof. Both treatments have been applied and painted with great skill. The wood effect of the walls looks so real. Great work Scott. It is always good to see what other people can do with my design work, once their own stamp of creativity is applied.
Jon Birt from Springfield Queensland Australia sent me this image. What a fantastic gaming table. The view from the Charlie Foxtort Models "Stone Barn" must be something to behold.  The road is so realistic, following the curve of the table, that Sherman advancing down is looks spot on. I look forward to seeing more of Jon's battleboards sometime soon.
George Anderson from Warton, Carnforth posted this on Facebook. Unashamedely pinched for the gallery (hope you do not mind George) The Charlie Foxtrot Models collection in this setting looks so much better. It would be a pleasure to play on this table.
Jon Birt from Springfield Queensland Australia has sent in this image of the "Stone Barn" (with the majority of painting done by Dervan Wargaming).Note the emphasis on the brickwork surrounding the doors and windows...such a different effect from my example in the store. Thanks Jon.
Mike Williams from Kendal shared an image of his Kings of War latest regiment. The Charlie Foxtrot Models multi base has been expertly populated with a visual feast. Much better than looking at a blank rectangle of MDF on the webstore and a great excuse to post such fine work. Cheers Mike...you can follow his work on Twitter .@CthulhuPunk 
George Anderson from Warton, Carnforth, is such a prolific painter (top quality too) of both miniatures and Charlie Foxtrot Models buildings. Here George has put "Walled Tile 2" "Dormer House 2" and "Workshop" to good use. You can follow his progress and exploits on his blog: musingswargameslife.blogspot.co.uk
Nick Hawkins from Willingham ordered some custom made "risers" to make the post & rail fences and picket fences just a bit taller. Looking good on the table and in use.  Nick is using Flintloque Elves for Sharp Practise. I hope to see the Eastern front Rural Houses to the right of the shot soon!

Pat Smith from Ongar in Essex kindly gave permission for me to use these pictures. Pat has so much eye candy on his blog: http://wargamingwithsilverwhistle.blogspot.co.uk/

It is well worth a visit....I am at a loss for words.

Koen Smeele ftom the Netherlands shared this picture of his Ratkin themed Kings of War "Double Dials". Very nicely done they are too. Koen is now worknig on a second set for his Abyssals, fingers crossed he posts pictures to me when the are finished.
Steve Pearce my good mate from Plymouth put on a Seven Years War demonstration game at Exeter Legionary. Using custom made movement trays from Charlie Foxtrot Models, Steve  took on John Soper in a very well populated table of really nicely painted figures. Hard to believe they are 15mm.
Graham Cookson from Exeter, is becoming a regular in this gallery. I took these pictures of his superb Dad's Army demo game at Legionary last weekend. So much detail each time you look more emerges. Once again great stuff Graham and such a contrast to last years resplendant Wars of The Roses table.
John Francis from Newark forwarded this collection of pictures from his demostration game at Salute. So good, I am sorry I missed it this year. I was pleased to hear that quite a few spectators recognised the Charlie Foxtrot Models. I still get a buzz knowing people are taking the time to assemble, paint and enjoy gaming with my designs..I am humbled. Thanks John...

George Anderson from Warton, Carnforth, is I believe  a recent player of Bolt Action. I have been following the progress of his Brits on his blog and Facebbok. Here they are in action amongst George's Charlie Foxtrot Models collection. Hard to believe that they are his first attempt at buildings. In at the deep end tiling the roofs too! Awesome.

Ceri Still from Queensland Australia kindly sent me these pictures of his dark ages army. Dial counters and the prone bases used for the cavalry. After all the camouflage I have been seeing recently these well chosen and applied vibrant colours make a refreshing change. The cavalry prone bases will be available separately in the webstore soon. 
Poul Secher from Denmark (who I had the pleasure to meet at Salute 2015) sent in these "3 Storey House" pictures. Like John Francis pictured  below, the roof has benefitted from expert card tiling. Take note also of the render on the walls. Both modellers appear to have used a smooth polyfilla type covering to a great effect. This has been weathered to complete the aged look. Thanks Poul. 

John Francis from Newark has been assembling quite a Charlie Foxtrot Models collection. Knowing my kits inside out, is has been a pleasure to spot all of the customising that John has skillfully applied. The back yards, entrance gateways, rendered walls, signs...even the bathroom sink. TOP QUALITY work John.
Ben Rolls has a number of Charlie Foxtrot Models buildings and this is his latest finished piece. "Dormer House 2" complete with interior decoration. Looks great on the table Ben.
Graham Cookson is working towards a large Dad's Army demo game at Exeter Legionary (30th April) and stressed to me this is work in progress. (Really??WIP!!! it looks awesome!) I had to look closely as his custom signs and brick wallpapered walls as they really disguise the www.charliefoxtrotmodels.com buildings collection. Quality work Graham, I am looking forward to seeing this once complete. Thanks for sharing.You can see more of Graham's work by scrolling through this gallery.
Luke Fellows recently ordered lots of 3mm Kings of War multi-bases from Charlie Foxtrot Models: look at what he has done with them....(just an excuse on my part to put some well-painted coulourful fantasy eye-candy in the gallery) Cheers Luke. (I love the giant)
Nick Gillett (from Lichfield UK) has once again done a superb job! This time he has tackled the "Stables" & "L'Epicerie" and added back gardens, fences, a yard and "kit bashed" a "Tabac" chimney if I am not mistaken. Top attention to detail. Nick is currently working on some Charlie Foxtrot Models in 20mm scale. I look forward to posting pictures of them as they become available. Thanks Nick.
Shane Malia has a previous entry in this gallery and I recently recieved some more pictures of his "Aggro" table completed to his very high standard. Shane has scratch built a great deal and commissioned Charlie Foxtrot Models for the signs & some brickwork. Concept, construction and painting all by Shane. I did the easy bit!

Darwin Yuen from Canada has painted the 20mm Brasserie so well, I initially thought it was the 28mm version. Top quality Canadian troops too.

The inspirational pictures above were provided by Rick Schuldt from the States. This guy can REALLY paint. Makes me want to do a winter themed army now. Magnificent, I wish I could weather my buildings

like this.


 

Brian Collins from Plymouth has been working frantically to get his table ready for the Warfare wargames show in Reading. What an impressive site it was his attention to detail was breathtaking. The closer I looked the more I saw. Clearly the many hours spent on the project paid off. I feel honoured to have this quality of modelling and painting in my gallery. Thanks Brian.......how are you going to follow this up for next year?
John Randall from High Wycombe, spurred on by his initial success has completed 3 Eastern Front buildings over one weekend. The "Rural House 1" & "Cabin" have been completed to a very high standard. Looking very closely, I would say the woodgrain roof is even better than his "Hunter's Lodge". Top quality work John. 
John Randall from High Wycombe sent in pictures of his "Hunter's Lodge" from the Eastern Front range. This is John's first attempt at making and painting a building. By following the tutorial on my blog, I think he has got the wood effect spot on. Sterling job for a 1st attempt......I am now looking forward to seeing pictures of the other two in his collection. 
Keith Phillips from Devon sent in a couple of pictures of "Farmhouse 2" and "post & rail fences" in 28mm scale. As I was erasing the background walls of his man cave, I noticed that the picture was a bit "grainy" so flicked a greyscale button to get an "in period" b/w shot. Keith has also shown the model with some of his Perry Miniatures Dragoons, showing the versatility of this kit. The weathering is very nicely done Keith..thank you.
Nick Gillett (from Lichfield UK) has fully populated a table with Charlie Foxtrot Models. A superb job has been done on them too. Particular points that really interest me are the extra embellishments that put a personal stamp on the models. Nick has based and put garden hedges around, added pavements and a road. Highlight model for me is the "Porch House" 1st picture top right. Here Nick has disguised the join where the model comes apart by painting in a two tone scheme....brilliant. Thanks for sending in the eye candy, Nick.
Whitman Bottiger from USA has been really innovative with his take on the Kings of War "Double Dial Counters" stat line, special rules, points cost and damage all in one. He has printed self-adhesive stickers designed to fit on the "Double Dial Counters" to great effect. Kow is fast play anyway, for Whitman, all he needs is in one place. We wargamers are an inventive breed.
Brian Collins from Plymouth, recently came to visit me here at Charlie Foxtrot Models HQ. Coffee, chat and a photo opportunity! Brian is an accomplished veteran gamer and modeller and is affiliated to Battlegroup South (the chaps who put on the excellent Bovington show). Brian has put his own stamp on his Charlie Foxtort models by adding bamboo skewer downpipes fixed with tomato puree tube metal sheet trimmed to make brackets. "Ruin 2" has also had some additions in the form of extra roofing and internal foamcore walls and a staircase. Whilst here, we cut panelling and a dado rail for the internal walls of L'Epicerie! Good times, good company and great work.
Geoff Coe sent me these pictures of his Eastern Front "Rural House 3". Geff has been working on a huge layout of Eastern European buildings which is growing week by week. I particularly like the aged paintwork on this model (still WIP yet looking so good I thought I would post ) thanks Geoff.
Tom Gilliland from USA bought the first copy of L'Ecole (recently reviewed in Wargames Soldiers & Strategy issue 80). I feel certain that Tom is a  graduate of Hogworts...this is magical! Thanks for sending the pictures to me Tom.
Rick Schuldt (founder of Scenic Effects USA) attended Pacificon convention in California with a table populated with Charlie Foxtrot Models. Looking at Rick's past work, I am not at all surprised that he has done such a good job with the buildings. Thanks for posting the pictures to me Rick. (Apologies the images are so small)
Geoff Coe is the first off the mark in submitting a picture of one of his completed "Hunter's Lodge" (Geoff has 3). Geoff has been the inspiration behind the wooden style Eastern European / Russian collection. Thanks for the extensive research pictures! Geoff has made a couple of creative additions to the basic kit and "planked the roof" and mounted the model on a scenic round base. The wood grain has come out really well too. I am looking forward to seeing Geoff's layout as he is working on a major project. Geoff, as they happen, please post in more pictures as your table grows.
Daniel Pidge contacted me recently, asking for some custom made pieces. Here is the 6" x 6" Minefield base with additional post holes. Daniel sent me a picture of one of the finished models via my facebook page. The snow setting makes the tanglewire somehow look more stark and threatening. This piece is part of Dan's winter war bolt action Finnish defences. Simple yet very effective...great idea you nailed it!
Graham Cookson is expertly working his way through his Charlie Foxtrot Models village; his latest finished pieces are presented to the high standard you can expect from him. Here we have " L'Epicerie", transformed with a custom made CFM sign and brick downloaded wallpaper. Very effective and no doubt hours of time saved. The second completed building in this batch is his "Boulangerie" ...trading as Walminton on Sea's greengrocers. Graham has more pictures of his models on his blok. Plenty of eye candy there..just right click this link   https://gcooksonblog.wordpress.com/about/
Shane Malia has transformed my "Tabac" model into something beyond my painting scenery skills. Starting with a custom made Charlie Foxtrot Models Fish 'N' Chips sign, Shane has added guttering, a drain pipe, hinges to the back gate, litter, brick mortar...graffitti......bin bags...LOST FOR WORDS (which is quite unusual for me). Hope to see more of Shane's work soon, he is making a football terrace / ground for the AGGRO game with a little bit of Charlie Foxtrot Models custom made brickwork and a whole lot of imagination and skill. I am experiencing brickwork envy.....
Ralph Ashdown's village is growing into something special. Having 2 "Table Edge Terraces" and the Terrace with front and back yards makes it look really built up. The more you look at the pictures, the more details emerge. Looking forward to seing your take on the newly released " Banque De France". Ralph thanks for sharing.
Graham Cookson is on a roll check out his latest! part of a whole Dad's Army layout...hopefully more eye candy to come.
Graham Cookson kindly allowed me to copy these pictures from his blog (see the links page for details). Graham invested in a large number of Charlie Foxtrot Models at Exeter Legionary in May this year. This is the first completed model, imaginatively titled by me as; "Three Storey House". This kit could be used from Napoleonics, through WWII to modern day. I am really looking forward to seeing how Graham progresses through his buildings collection over the coming months if this is the standard they will be produced to. Top quality paint job Graham!
 
 Keith Phillips has been busy again; the minefields are his second set of pictures in the gallery. The very convincing smoke markers were made by Keith using 3" & 4" Charlie Foxtrot Models round bases. The fenced field is also looking good, so much better marking the perimeter and having a linear object to cross. A set of allied mainfield markers are also included in the kit!

 

I think you will agree, Brendon Dolan: ( reiver-1 on E Bay did the commission work, picture supplied by Peter Simpson) has done a superb job on his V1 Launch Ramp and Tamiya V1 Rocket.....top quality work!

Dave Rose whom I believe to be one of the jolly decent chaps who partakes in a little bit of  "A Very British Civil War" sent in this picture. I really like how the stone barn and 3 storey house have been painted to match. Nice work Dave, looking forward to seeing more in due course.
Justin Davies sent in these pictures, the intact house, stone shed and old shed. Neat idea to use the extra door as a garden gate. Great combination of colour using different coloured shutters and window frames. Something I had not considered before. It is unfortunate there is no zoom facility with the customer gallery..the old shed has some awesome highlights.
Keith Phillips bought a few models from the Charlie Foxtrot Stand at Legionary in Exeter. He has done a fine job on the "Farmhouse 2" and claims it is "nearly finished". Looking at the superb weathering on the Brit universal carrier, my expectations are high! Good work Keith, looking forward to seeing more pictures soon. How about some with your Germans in front!
More of Ted Martin's seascape
"Dial Counters" by Paul Buller .....pin markers painted so good, the image is being used in the shop.

The beach scene pictures have been sent in by Ted Martin. The Brasserie & Boulangerie have both had new signage commissioned by Ted and he has done a superb job with them both. More of this table is an absolute must ( will add more pictures when I can.......watch this space). Ted has very kindly offered to do a tutorial on how he achieved the sea effect. In 30 years+ modelling, I have never been quite so convinced..moving water often lets and layout or diorama down......this is GOLD! (errr, not Gold Beach ...but of high value I meant) cheers Ted.
Tom Gilliland from USA sent in these pics. The Stone barn seems a popular choice for modellers and painters to try different effects. The tonal shading is awesome. The interior with dirty straw...so good you can almost smell it! Thanks Tom. I really cannot say with certainty how the effects were achieved, possibly airbrush & part toothbrush spatter? Would love to find out...Tom advised me that there is a lot of sponging to get the tonal variation. That is a method I have yet to try but will do so in the near future..Thanks Tom.
Ralph Ashdown has allowed me to grab this picture from his blog. I think the tree,the veg plots and taller plants are really good. I also spotted a Charlie Foxtrot Models shed in the back yard. Here Ralph has coated the roof with what looks like paper (?) the roofing felt appearance is a great change from the planked roof supplied. Ralph, I hope to see more of your work in this gallery soon. Thank you. 
Jonathan Davidson "Sablefox" Has transformed the Charlie Foxtrot Models "Workshop". I had to take a close look to check it was my design. Jonathan has skilfully clad the workshop in 200gsm cardboard and added fascias and shutters. The blue looks brilliant. I often struggle with colour and would never have come up with this. Check out the tiled roof too!
Giovanni Alberto Paulone from Italy put together this table with a large Charlie Foxtrot Models collection. The layout was for a display game of Infinity at an Italian wargames convention.  Giovanni, has made an eye catching layout with the stark grey and brown combination. I believe he is now working on making the street lights actually work!.
Ralph Ashdown has done nice job of both the "Workshop" and the "Tabac". I really like the heavy texture to the workshop and turning the roof 90 degrees on the Tabac changes the model completely. Cheers Raplh.

Ceri Still from Queensland Australia has sent in this picture of his collection of Charlie Foxtrot Models.......the layout is looking great. The crashed plane was so good, I invested in one myself.

I have to thank the talented Phil Turner for these pictures of the "Stone Barn and shed". Phil deservedly picked up best painted army at Exeter legionary 2014. looking forward to seeing more Phil.
 
"Stone Barn" by Jenny Owens-Smith, "Post & rail Fences" too! They look great, fantastic painting."La brasserie" also by Jen........I wish I had thought of a central name tag like that, the "Cafe Rene" makes this stand out. For more of Jen's awesome painting visit " http://thewargamestable.blogspot.co.uk/
