Administrative building with Workshop
|Kit # 72021||Preview by Rob Haelterman|
try to put at least half of my armor models in a diorama, so I am
constantly on the lookout for new items to use as a backdrop. Recently
I decided to try one of MiniArt's smaller
sets, which didn't quite convince for the full 100% as the box
(and price tag) was rather big for the contents. My statistics professor
once told me that a sample size of one is not sufficient to draw any
conclusions, so I dove in and bought a second set; a bigger one this
time. When it arrived, I immediately noticed that it was a BIG box,
but this time when I opened it I noticed
As the parts are so numerous, I decided to scan only a representative sample. (At least I hope my statistics professor agrees that it is representative.)
The instructions are the size of a small novel, sample pages of which can be found below.
It seems that most of the parts are to be clicked together, although some glue might help keeping them snugly together for eternity. Some parts that are in the box are not to be used and are probably shared with other kits from the same manufacturer. I believe some of them might actually be used in exchange for other parts.
Overall detail is nice and crisp, but I do feel the need to highlight some minor misgivings.
All in all, this set seems to be rather good value for money, although I am still at a loss how I am going to integrate such a big building into a diorama.
