Loyalists march out. A foraging party, or perhaps a patrol on the watch for rebels heading for Quebec. And the magnificent block house from which they sally forth? Here it is in its laser cut MDF glory:
It's made by '4Ground', and I was alerted to it by another blog, which I can't find now (too many on my favourites list!). This is the first MDF kit that I've made, and what a joy it was to put together.
