Mrs Miggins Pie shop. After years of hard work kneading and baking Mrs Miggins has finally scraped enough groats together to buy herself a House. And what better choice could she make than to get one from Fredericus-rex
This house measures 19cm´s Tall, 7.5cms wide and 10cm´s long.
All the Fredericus-rex
buildings (and the range is already enough to build a small town) are lasercut wood / card, so all you need to build one is a scalpel and some woodglue. It is recommended to use oils to paint them but I´ve used Acrylics and had no problems, which was one reason I was mildly put off getting any of these houses. I´ve never used oils in model painting but even when used quite "wet" the acrylics didn´t affect the materials.
|Mrs Miggins enjoying the spring sunshine and deciding what type of base she will give her new house. |
|Above the shop window, next to the two small windows, the kit allows an extra glased window to be added. |
|Each floor is individual which means they can be swopped from back to front so from this one kit you could get 6 slightly different looking houses. Also, being individual you could take the floors apart and fit the interiors out. |
The Detail is superb!!!. Windowframes, hinges etc are all included on laser cut card. The wood work (either on card or balsawood ) has the grain cut into it and the stonework (which also comes of card) has a realistic stone finish.Basically, everything has been thought of.
Some of the printed sheets, for example the wood for the upper storey in this building, are very thin. I recommend putting the sheets (which are A4 size) into a folder with each Sheet numbered sheet in order. This not only prevents any damge that may occur if they were just in a pile or spread about but it also speeds up the construction time.
Pre paint and prefit all pieces before final glueing and take your time...it´s worth going slow on these :-D
