So I really liked the little cabin from Interaction Hobbies,
and ordered one awhile back.

A couple of folks have shared their builds of this,
and I just wanted to show what I did with it.

I don't know if all their kits are this good but this was great.
Well done instructions and parts all worked.

Some great details.
(full interior, lighting and possible rocking chair animation)

Way cool.
Great company and lots of fun kits.


So 1st shot: finished model.

The printed detail parts are sweet and great wallpaper effect,
all in all a fun build (this is just a little mockup scenery).

You can see the feller in his rocker on the porch,
I chose not to animate it, but a great (but delicate) detail.

I had these resin kit Chooch buildings that I had found,
and enjoyed building the little country store.

I thought they would work with this backwoods area I'm working towards.

So I don't have a shot of that sized,
but this is the one I finished a little bit ago, a blacksmith and shop.

These are cast resin and nicely done, the shed is strip wood,
fence, ramps, and cardboard roofs, a good little kit.

Kinda a challenge to get a good paint look,
but trying to get something appropriate my layout, being late '30s.

So finishing up this little scene,
I thought about another I had picked up years ago,
a little hardware store.

I didn't build it because it was cast on to a very thick resin slab,
which I knew I would have to grind off (1/8" or so),
a really smelly toxic pain.

Which I did with my belt sander and shop vac, out in the back yard.
Stuck to everything and my poor shop vac still smells like that crap.
(sorry this was ugly)

I would have tossed this, but the detail was terrific, and so it goes.
So respirator and washing I put it together.

Heres a close up of detailing and you can see it is great.

This shot inside isn't great,
but I did want to mention the Willys coupe.

A interesting car in cast resin,
and I had never built one before, so thought I would try it.

Came out better than I thought it would,
funky casting but I like it...

...sorta R.Crumb.
