My old college friend George Nafziger (a wargaming host when we were students at Miami of Ohio) had on display in his booth at the Fall In dealer hall a new 10mm building that is sure to get a lot of interest from ACW gamers! It a very nice depiction of the standard German-style overhanging bank barn, which are so very common here in south-central Pennsylvania. This new resin model is detailed, well sculpted, and paints up quite well. It has the barn and a base plate. The model could easily be used for the McPherson, Bliss, or Rose barns at Gettysburg, all of which were in this general style.
Although quite pricey ($22), this may be the most accurate Pennsylvania Overhanging Barn model I have yet seen. It’s sure to be a conversation piece on your tabletop Gettysburg layout and, coupled with what John Mayer’s Round Top Miniatures is now producing, there is a very refreshing renewal of interest in 10mm Gettysburg buildings.

Very nice addition George! Keep the Gettysburg buildings coming! What buildings would you like to see the manufacturers add to their existing product lines?
