At Salute, I can across a company I hadn't seen or heard of before Plascraft Games.
They produce pre printed plasticard buildings think prepainted MDF buildings but cheaper! At Salute, they had a special offer where you can purchase one of every building for a discounted price, so I jumped in! Unfortunately for me, work and life got in the way and it's taken me over two months to finally start making the buildings!

My aim this week, is to get all the kits I bought constructed. Anyway here's the Armory (or Armoury as I spell it!).

the instructions say to use Super Glue to assemble the building, but I used PVA (which is much more forgiving!)

PS I really shouldn't have used my phone camera!

Looks good. A suggestion… Rather than take the photo with the light/window behind the building, place yourself with the window to your back and the building in front of you, so we can see it better:)

Look pretty good. Do the pieces fit well together and is it a fairly easy assembly?

Wow! These are cool! I bought a couple of PLastcraft Old West buildings a couple of years ago but they were blank. They were very inexpensive but I had to add texture and paint them myself. You can see them here.

I found them a bit fiddly to assemble but an overall good value. How did you find assembly of the new stuff?

I've started with the smallest and easiest building first. This one was quite simple to put together. It's worth pointing out that you have to download the instructions from the website. So far I'm happy, just wary of the bigger kits I've got coming up!

Thanks for the suggestion about taking photos.
