20mm 00 scale Hornby Buildings for WW2?

This is an 00 scale (1:76 scale, 20mm is 1:72 scale) pre painted Hornby Skaledale railway model building and I'm thinking of using a couple for my Operation Sealion project to show rural England, what do you think of them, as far as I know you can't take the roofs off any of them, there is no internal detail but I think they look alright if they're a good price and the first building should always be a pub.

What are you having?

20mm figures for scale purposes.


The good old Masons Arms



Have a good weekend, on holidays next week so posting may be a little hit and miss but I should be able to visit your blogs.
