Where to buy 28mm windows and doors?

Hi Chaps,

It seems that asking questions on blogger is becoming a bit of a habit but I am rather stuck and the internet in general is throwing almost nothing up.

I am intending to start a scratch build session of epic proportions-well 2 full days but I would like to amass all the bits I need to maximise my build time. An attempt at miniature project management to save time and pennies.

The items I am looking for are 28mm scale windows and doors suitable for the Victorian era. Whilst  could scratch build for the poorer buildings I feel that a machined look is in order for the better areas of town just like in this pic


The amazing model town can be found on this link...world class war gaming stuff on there as well (I do hope that the owner is cool about me sharing this pic).

I was hoping that someone may produce mdf windows, doors, guttering that I could stick onto or into my brickwork that has been carved into foam.

Thanks in advance for any help....my miniature building site needs a final fix!

  1. Have you found a card building model firm called Scalescenes? They do a number of accessory sheets like doors, etc. I think they can be rescaled to suit.

  4. You might also look at model train bits, since S and O scales are fairly close to what you want for 28mm terrain. There are several manufacturers of plastic windows/doors/etc, and while they lean a bit more to wooden construction that you might want (given your sample issue) they do have pieces for masonry construction too.

    Grandt line is the one I can think of off hand, but there are a few more, and tons of hard plaster and resin casters.
