Normally I don't build 1/72 scale. The armor is too small and my eyes are too old. There is a guy in our club named Scott who only builds 1/72 and because I thought how funny it would be to enter something into our upcoming contest in 1/72 scale to surprise him, I picked this kit to review.

It is a Village House, which is molded in color (although it still will need to be painted), and it is awesome. I'll admit that building this kit was a lot of fun, my son helped me because it went together so easily, and it is going to look cool once I add in the extras.

You get a few extra pieces, and have two choices for the front door. There are full gutters and rain spouts, which I left off so I can take the roof off to finish the interior. The roof and bricks are well done, and mine had no flash at all. Crisp, clean plastic that went together very well. re are full gutters and rain spouts.

The only drawback is that there is no clear plastic for the windows. I will have to cut that myself. Other than that I have no complaints. I enjoyed this so much I wish I could get some more of their buildings and build a village.

The fun stuff you can do with this building are numerous, I am going to scratch build an interior, complete with a second floor which thankfully their design allows. You can just pop in a wooden floor.

I definitely recommend this building!

I would like to thank MRC and Miniart for providing the sample kit, and to IPMS/USA for the review sample to me.
