It's a residential building sutiable for any time period from about 1900 onwards and ideal for the 1920s.
Obviously the building could also be used in my Zombie gaming too, so why hasn't it seen the light of day on the table I hear you ask.
Well, ny version of it looks like the photograph below (mostly because it is my version) and has done for several years now.
|Unfinshed front view|
The building is obviousky meant as a split building with separate doors for the left and right sides, and is also reflected on the ground floor layout. Whilst the ground floor has wall pieces etc. there is little to no room for a staircase to the second floor (and the third floor too. which I bought as an extra). The upper floors also have no means of entry and I've been in several minds thinking about the internal layout since the purchase of this .
|Rear view (not for those with OCD)|
Well, therein lies another thought-provoking 'problem' with this building.

A secondary problem that needs a decision depends on whether or not I make use of the building as two premises or a single one and this will have a knock-on affect upon the entry way stairs (currently two staircases!).
I did do a little extra 'modelling as can be seen in the photograph below, merely a rood hatch using coffee-strirrers (what else!) and a little sand to give the featureless, smooth roof a texture.
The answer is an emphatic "NO not at all", it fitted together very easily and is a superbly 'solid', warmes model. It was lightly sprayed with a grey £1 Poundlandworld spray and painted using both acrylics and water-based clour-testers with no detectable warping on the model.
There is another feature that I'd like to mention too and that's the service I got from Sarissa, which was superb. I placed the order and recieved the well-packed parcel some four days later (I think that there's a good chance you'd wait longer for a home delivery from your nearest supermarket).
This, however, is not the end of my adventures in MDF, as in my next post I'll be showing my two latest MDF aquisitions.
This is a test
So that's it until next time, I hope you've found something of interest in the history of my first encounter with MDF.
