Dalkulla painted and ready for a game



During the weekend I managed to paint my "Dalkulla" of course in the traditional Swedish colour "Falu Röd"(Falu Red). Here are som pictures of my electrical sub station (Dalkulla)








...and a picture of the original that inspired my build...

  8. Thanks mateys !

    It turned out quite well, on of a kind as Monty mentioned, at least on a wargaming table I hope;) In the real world I suppouse there are about 10ish left i Dalarna but back in the 1930´3 it would have been one in each small village to transform the high power to low power that was then distributed out to the surounding houses.

    Have a realy nice day !

    Best regards Michael

  11. That's one quirky piece of electrical engineering; it looks more like the Moomins' house than a substation, and I wish Australian electricity providers were as imaginative in their architecture!

    Was this a one-of-a-kind or are there more like that in Sweden?

    A great piece of terrain as well - it will no doubt inspire much comment around the table!
