Apartment roof-light


Product Code: APT/RL

This model is part of the wargames terrain modular building series. It forms the separate roof with roof-light, of the Apartment or Town House buildings, which are also available as a whole in COMBI-DEALS.

The flat roof is designed to fit in with 'front' walls, dividing walls or gable end walls. The roof has a high level of detail portraying exposure to the elements with roof-light,  'lead' sheeting, 'lead' roles for the joints between sheets, gutters and a slight 'fall' to either side of the central ridge.

This wargames terrain model roof is representative of town houses or apartments built around the late 19th Century, early to mid 20th Century and found in England, Europe and America. The appearance is of a generic type found in many urban areas, particularly cities, so that it can be used in conflicts from Victorian, WW1, 1930’s, WW2, modern urban street-fighting and rpg. Originally the roof would have been constructed of a light weight timber frame with lead sheet in strips as the waterproofing. The roof-light would have been constructed of glass with a lightweight metal or wooden frame. The purpose of the roof-light would have been to let natural daylight into the interior of the building, and would be  a particualr feature located over the stairwell or lift well, as idicated in the Apartment COMBI-DEALS photos. Of all of the building elements the roof-light probably gives the least resistance to forced entry and this is therefore a common way to assualt such town house or apartment buildings.

The purpose of the modular series is to allow the user flexibility with the urban environment. Should you just want a street scene then facades can be built up on either side. Or, if you want to represent burnt out buildings then the wall elements will only be required. You will quickly see that this gives you savings as the roofs or floors need not be purchased at the same time.
