Moved onto the bigger buildings at the weekend. First up, it's the Sushi Corner. A curved single storey building. The only real pain was the plastic Tyre advert which (like the building) is supposed to be curved. I eventually had to resort to soaking it in boiling water to soften it, wrap it around a mug, before soaking it in cold water for it to retain its shape. Messy, but worked.

Lastly, was the Shopping Center. This was so big that I ended up constructing this over two days – mainly because I was using PVA to glue it together and PVA takes time to dry. Anyway this is a big kit with a big footprint!

Nicely done.

Do the pieces fit together well when assembling these kits? I've stayed away from the line as some people have mentioned that they do not.

If you download and follow the instructions then assembly is pretty straight forward. Plascraft recommend using superglue when assembling, but I know from experience that superglue is unforgiving when you make a mistake.

Although there's no interior, the kits are well designed (on a par with 4ground)and if you can cope with Ikea instructions, you can cope with these!

Just need to game with them now.

I'm begging you to stop photographing these against a back light!

Thanks Norrins.

Based on your review I think I will buy some.
