#35001 "KARKOV"Corner Building.
Contains 1,434 injection molded styrene parts,styrene sheets,rod,channel,strips
and 12 pages of instructions.
The huge amount of parts given include all that is needed to construct
a corner of any two story town or city dwelling, complete with
windos and roof. Also included are ample parts
to construct a sidewalk corner section and cobble stone street
complete with curbstones and storm drain. All of this can be mounted on
the provided black plastic injection molded base.
Styrene sheet and other stock are provided for adding interior walls,
exterior "stucco" and roof panels. 4 complete
sets of windows with seperate frames and clear plastic "glass"
plus parts to build basement windows are included.
The instructions are well laid out and give a "row-by-row"
construction sequence to the cinder block bricks. For areas
that are battle damaged, standard red bricks are provided along with notes
on how to properly use the materials included in the box to represent
damage. Everything is pre-colored in a variety of shades of "concrete"
grays and "brick"
reds and virtually no clean up is required. Of course, the instructions
can be modified or even disregarded to custom
the appearance ofthe final structure, plus additional parts are
available seperately to add to the structure.
Ruined Farmhouse Corner.
Contains 1,160 injection molded styrene pieces, 9 pieces of styrene sheet/rod,
11 pages of instructions.
The kit from this manufacturer allows one to model a typical
French farmhouse in ruin. To do so, individual blocks in various sizes
and shapes are combined with rafters and roof tiles,plus styrene sheet
and other shapes. The instructions, although more complex than you might
imagine, are logical and fairly easy to follow. They show you how to model
the interior(including floors, walls,ceiling and a fireplace) and the
exterior(walls,roof,door and window opening and chimney) to a "set"
plan. Finally, an 8" square injection molded styrene
base (to which other section can be joined for a larger diorama) allows
the modeler to securely mount the finished
structure for display. The beauty of this kit,however, lies in the ability
of the modeler to vary the plan and have the structure turn out differently.
In fact, that is the ultimate strength of this building system-no two
structures need ever
to look alike. The various pre-colored parts are cleanly molded and require
no clean up,while the styrene sheet and stock will be easy to cut and
trim into the required shapes.
The blocks easily fit together "Lego" style and just need a
of glue to permanently hold in place. If you are tired of the
cloned look of cast plaster or resin buildings, this system is for you.
"Vietnamese" Town Store/Bar
Contains 674 injection molded styrene parts, 5 pcs. sheet styrene,1 sheet
of paper signage, plus 7 pages of instructions.
Another new item premiered at AMPS is this latest 'full kit'
from Hansa. I say 'full kit' because everything needed to produce the
front and two partial sides is included in the box,
but it is not a complete building. The building is a cinderblock two story
structure with a balcony and a tarpaper roof.
Included are windows and doors for both stories, plus tile floors and
complete sidewalk. It will build the sructure as described and can also
be customized with other parts in the interlocking system to depict something
different. It can also be destroyed for the Hue/Tet offensive look. There
is also a printed paper sheet with various signs to depict the "Tan
Lap Bar" in a typical Vietnamese town or city. As always, the system
consistes of 'Lego' style interlocking parts, which makes it the most
flexible scale building system in 1/35 scale, something that will be appreciated
for its ability to help create totally unique structures. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
