Ever since I first started collecting 28mm samurai figures, I've yearned for a Japanese castle to go with them. That dream is finally coming true!

Over the years I've seen a few castle models advertised on the internet, but they were either too expensive, or didn't quite capture how I thought a Japanese castle should look.

But when I spotted the latest new models in Plast Craft Games' Fukei range, I realised straight away that they would fit both the traditional appearance and the affordable cost I was after.

Here's a photo review I've just done of these buildings: link

How is the edging on the pieces? I know several of their older ones, at least used to, have some issues with the bright white plastic they used as the base piece that stood out like a sore thumb without some work done.

Did they fix that now?

Of the three kits I've reviewed, the only place where there is white plastic showing (as apart from MDF or thick card edges) is on the corners of the little upper storey building of the sumi tower.

I found these edges very easy to paint with brown acrylic to match the wood, as you can see in this photo:
