Yes, I agree. Some well-thought-out accessory sets would benefit the hobby, and like the old Atlantic soft plastic forts, towns, accessory sets would end up becoming classics.
The Airfix forts were a dream come true for kids, and as conversion parts, the same for adults.
The Marx HO sets with accessories were tops too!
As for my tastes, I simply do not enjoy big chunky plaster or heavy resin stuff. I like soft plastic soldiers and the hard plastic Airfix Fort Sahara is great for conversions, yet still light.
I bought up about a dozen Atlantic Far West Town sets off eBay, at a small fortune, to make a kind of diorama of the Boer War "Relief of Ladysmith." Just a small Main Street kind of scene. This was how it became obvious that a Trench & Seige Warfare accessory set could easily be possible.
It would be easy to make some solid pieces at home, but I would rather spend my time making money, and then spend my money on S*R products. :-)
I wish the S*R Team would reconsider doing this. If the first letter to them was lost, I could resend another copy of the general idea to them.

Dear Mike McA,
I'm afraid my drawing and letter were actual papers. I postal mailed these directly to the Strelets-R address on their box. So unfortunately, there is no on-line trail. All we can do is cross our fingers. :-)
