Sort of like his own Winchester Mystery House. Has anyone built this in Lego yet?

@Ko SprueOnethat model finally came in. Theres some clean up at the mold injection sites and a lot of the posts need to be trimmed down so the pieces will sit flush. There are no instructions on where the pieces go so there was a lot dry fitting and picture reference from the online images. There is one piece I cant figure out where it goes. But that being said the detail is all there. Its nice. I'll post some pictures for detail and model size in just a little bit.

Yes, please do. If you don't have a ruler or a tape measure close by, put a pencil or pen in a couple of the pictures for scale reference.

The casting looks clean and a good quality. And a decent size model for sure. I'm going to look into getting one myself.

After trimming the 'pour gates' away from the parts you should wash all the parts. They most likely have most a release agent on them. The caster does this to ease removal from the molds and the molds will last longer.

 

I use Bestine (rubber cement solvent) for resin but it has strong fumes for indoors. You can also use denatured alcohol, less fumes. 

 

After that dries. Prime with acrylic lacquer aerosol.

 got a friend in lockdown who can't get to a model shop (none in his area) and has his credit card maxed so i thought I'd help him out with his WW2 tableau diorama thing he's making.

 there's a model shop that is 90% military hobbies or cars.

One good thing about Copvid19 is that stores are pretty sweet on discounting stuff down to 40.00 form $50 and he dropped it to $30 because he was glad to have somebody in his shop.

 Like the pajero.

Is that M3 Lee up top a scratch build or kit? I haven't seen one with that type of Culin hedge cutter. Good work and paint anyway.

 

I don't have that Pajero kit but Tamiya is famous for tight fitting kits. As far as I remember, they never included left hand drive dash boards tho. I think it was Fujimi or Aoshima that would include both LH and RH dash versions.

@Ko SprueOnesorry my post wasn't clear

 

 the build is his so I'm not sure on the kit sadly.

 

I'm just helping him out with supplies since the closest decent shop near him is over 70 miles ( and is closed)

 

Got him some japanese infantry today. Apparently one end is eastern front Europe other end is iwo jima or something.

 

 some of these fellas are about to become mortar victims....

You were clear, I just thought you were still in his town or still at his pad talking to him.

That looks like a solid hobby shop with all that static plastic. Most shops that are still open, even before the pandemic, specialize in RC or Railroad or gaming only.

Good on you for helping your friend out.
