Plans for 2010

I've been planning for next years big project for a while know, based around an Italian colonial town some where in North / East Africa for my 15mm British Italian WW2 forces to fight over. Some of the items on the map have already been produced, the oil storage tank's and the flying boat station and the coast whatch tower will be used in this set up. The hills have also been made.
The Elements that go to make up the town will as much as possible be Generic, so I can use them in other locations and times. For example the bungalows will be used in Vietnam as French colonial buildings.
It all started from a picture of an Italian Futurist petrol station in Asmara, as featured in the Telegraph magazine, strange how these things start out. It looked like something out of flash Gordon. I thought I've just got to build that, and the next thing you know I've drawn out the entire town, including modernist 1930's government buildings.
Well that's the plan, and you know what they say about the best laid plans!
More plans and drawings to follow.
