New buildings kits on Kickstarter

Postby Severn » Sat Aug 09, 2014 21:34

If you're looking for some buildings for your dioramas, I am designing 10 new kits that will be suitable for 144 scale modelling, made in etched brass :o
It's a crowdfunding venture on kickstarter, feel free to take a look, I am inviting suggestions from modellers for some of the kits too, if there is something you want but cannot find.
Here are a few pics of the first prototype kit :

And pics of the next ones in their card prototype stage :

Here's the linky to the project : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1176713488/a-house-in-your-hand-architectural-miniature-model

The project is called 'A House in Your Hand' and is live on Kickstarter until the end of August 2014.

Gosh, they are really impressive! Very much in-scale and probably the nicest looking buildings I've seen in our scale.
Good luck Sir!

Another new kit in development, as requested by the backers :-) so kit 8 of the 10 is a small church, with stone block walls and a half timbered bell tower, soon to be immortalised in etched brass 8-)

There are 2 more kits being designed from backer suggestions during August, so take a look and let me know what buildings you need
