Rural Chapel Undamaged/Ruin

  Preview by Rob Haelterman

This is my first encounter with the products manufactured by ADM Models and I am suitably impressed.
The casting quality and detail is top notch: only two small airbubbles were found after thoroughly scrutinizing the parts, flash is minor and warping non-existing which resulted in a perfect (dry-)fit.
This is also the first time I am giving the choice to build a diorama item in either undamaged or damaged form.
If you build it in undamaged state (and leave the door closed) construction work is minimal. If you leave the door open, you might want to add some ornaments, like an altar or images.
To build it in damaged form, you will need to replace the rear wall by a damaged alternative. Rubble is provided to add a realistic effect. The modeler can leave the roof off or modify these parts as desired. (The roof parts are styrene and thus easily cut up.) As the interior faces of the walls are plain, some engraving will be called for and some extra interior detail might be useful.
The approach the manufacturer has chosen also means that, whatever you, you will have a spare wall left that you could use as a backdrop for another project.
A nice touch is the provision of green transparent acetate for the windows.

As far as I can tell, the style of building will fit in any diorama depicting a scene in a Christian country.

The chapel was eventually used in this diorama.
