Thanks for your kind comments, Sirs grin

Just one precision by the artist: 400g is the current structure weight only. With the additional parts not shown in picture (water tank, roof, upper fašade and so), overall weight is likely to reach 700g --that stands still a remarkably light weight for such a relatively large building.

Side view

Despite still awaiting a roof to top the thing, I've thought you would like to see what our upcoming modernist-styled Catalonian Wine Cellar is starting to look like. Better than trying to explain it in words, let's share a few pictures of the prototype:

Side-Front view

Please note: The main trick we're using to make a relatively lightweight model kit from this otherwise massive building is that the thick cardboard box of its packaging is going to be the building main body, on which socles, windows, false towers, terraces, and other architectural details are to be fixed, so as to build the ultimate kit.

Facade view

Such a trick will allow us to set an affordable pricing for the model kit, as well as to keep its total weight below 400g – a measure that ought to permit shipping expenses' economy too, while still allowing for a durable, tough model building on tabletop.

Upper view

Two long side terraces will allow for miniatures to be placed on top, to help use the building not just as a simple background decoration, but as a terrain element by itself. And lastly, users will have the choice not to glue the roof on top, thus allowing indoor practicability too.

I'm quite happy about the thing's development, honestly.
