1/56 MDF Laser Cut Building Reviews Battlefield Accessories & Sarissa

With my 28mm collection slowly expanding into WW II I've decided a few building would be necessary for a bit of an 'urban' skirmish. Now with the pricing of the new laser cut MDF building I've decided the Dollars spent are more than  worth my time to make complex and good looking buildings. A quick search of the net revealed many companies making laser cut MDF buildings, there was even one e based here in Adelaide but their Wild West main theme didn't fit with what I was after. I decided to be fair and selected a couple of sample products to compare some local Australian wares from Battlefield Accessories with one of the big boys Sarissa.

Today I'm comparing BA's Village Building 2 (AUD16 + some shipping) and Sarissa's Destroyed Terrace House N025 (GBP9.99 free shipping that's to Arcane Scenery) so they are actually almost exactly the same price.

Here are some pictures BA's single story jobbie versus Sarissa 'damaged' thingee...

Here's what I think, I'll definite be getting some more Sarissa stuff but unless I can source the BA kits locally going on what I've seen from the two Village Building kits th BA stuff is too expensive for what you get.
