Brigade Models have several new items in their Small Scale Scenery (1/1000th scale) range, all with a Hispanic flavour.
Brigade Models have released some new 17th and 18th century fortifications from the Mediterranean island of Menorca – the Castell de San Antonio on the northern coast (as it was built, rather than the pile of rubble it is now) plus a pack of three different defensive towers selected from the many that are dotted around the rocky Menorquin coast.
And then shifting continents, they have a pack of four small blockhouses such as were built by the Spanish on Cuba during the War of Independence in that country and the following Spanish-American War. They’re of a similar design to American Civil War blockhouses so would serve a dual purpose there too.
Finally, they have a small catholic church, based on a Cuban prototype, but which again would serve in other parts of the world such as northern Mediterranean countries or South America.

SSS-8082 – Menorca Towers – £2.50
