Hi Guys. I'm starting a new company that will produce structure kits in 1/35 (& perhaps 1/48). The kits will featue cast hydrocal plaster parts, laser cut wood windows, doors & shattered glass, cast rubble & bricks and easy to understand, full color painting & aging instructions. Here is one of my first releases.

Because I wanted to try & keep the cost down the interior is pretty plain. It's up to the modeller to add interior detail.

Thanks. The kit will retail for $44.95. Dioramas Plus is my brand new company. The website is being built now. Dealer/distributor inquiries are welcome, although I will sell direct as well. Stay tuned!

Randy,
My overall first impression is that it is an impressive kit with loads of potential. My only real constructive feedback and personal gripe is the way the front face piece must meet/attach to the side/return face. The details such as the ledges between floors and block joints don't carry around the corner. Perhaps it's just as easy as some additional lines scribed in the returns. Please don't get me wrong not all buildings match perfectly and this may just be my own personal gripe, but I do know that how that corner is made is one of the first things I look at when considering a purchase.

Again, I do think it's a nice piece, my concern would be the corner joint.

I hope this is the kind of feedback you were after?

Steve

Thanks Steve. Yes, corners on a kit like this are always a bit tricky. I agree though, that generally this one works pretty well. I'm looking at other corner fixes for future releases. Cheers!
