Freedom for Morvalonga
While many Morvalis still live in tribal villages of traditional construction, many others live in shanty towns along the main routes, in towns and cities.
These shanties are resin models from S&S models.
The better off have brick buildings with corrugated iron roofs.
Incidentally they are incredibly noisy in the frequent downpours. (Again
an S&S Model)
The advent of tourism and UN funding provided the impetus for the construction
of toilet blocks. (Again an S&S Model)
Every town, village and truckstop has a bar. This one is again from S&S
Models with some details added. The lean too "Lounge" scratch built from
lollipop (popcicles if you are from across the pond) with a card roof and paper
The interior of the lounge. The bar comes from some bits from a Matchbox
kit the other tables are Faller railway load cable drums. The beer crates
are also Faller and the bottles, cups and cards are from scrap bits and pieces.
Some places make use of grounded wagons for storage and even living quarters. This one is typical.
Or is it? Inside is a still - no tax on this alcohol!
THE NEW SCHOOL
President for Life, Hero of the People and Saviour of the State Bishop Moses
Besquit (God bless him) has graciously blessed the "MosesSchool" with his name.
It is said, by unkind people, that he insisted on the name when he allowed the
UN to build it in their compound. It will eventually have a football pitch,
toilets and maybe a teacher or two soon!
Interior of the two classrooms, one for girls and one for boys.
Doctor Qilda'ar and his escort inspecting the classrooms after some stains on the floor were reported.

The models were bought on e-bay for a lot less than I expected a couple of years ago and have lain in a box since then. From what I remember the postage was quite high!
These ones have some added awnings made from coffee stirrers and kebab skewers.
And these are houses for families.
A workshop and some more homes.
And the Red House, the village head man's home and office.
