Hello
I would like to know if I can use the Reality in Scale French House as an Italian house. I intend to use it in a WWII diorama
I hope to listen you about this issue.
All the best,
Fabrício

Hi Fabricio

It looks pretty good for a French house during the 40s'.

I think the house facade is ok for an Italian house as well as the doors and windows styles. My main concern is about the gutter. I never seen this kind of gutter in Italian houses I found in my researches. I was hoping to get some help here. Who knows? I wrote to Reality in Scale too, but without any answer too.
I apprecite your kindness for wrote me.

All the best,
Fabrício

Hi Fabrício,
I think you can safely proceed with this house, here in Italy (in the north western part where I live) you could find every kind of gutters on old houses but I think that the most common ones are rounded and not square like the one in the picture you posted. It should be an easy modification

The box around the gutter is typical for houses in nothern France, Belgium and Holland.
Areas were it rains more then in the southern parts of Europe.
The rainbox is larger and made on the inside with zincplate.
They are still build like that today.
Leave of the gutterbox and replace with simpel halfpipe for an Italian version!
Happy modelling
