Gregg asked me to paint up a couple of buildings for this review. The last review was
of a JR kit. These are also JR Miniatures. I had a standard of what JR buildings
were like from the first one,but these really exceeded those expectations.
The Pros: These are solid models.
No gluing parts together, No holes or cracks to fill......just a 2 piece - building and roof. The detail is better too. Stark contrasts makes the model easier
to paint and separates the details better when washing or drybrushing. These
models also have good detail in the floorboards when you remove the roofs. they'll
definitely enhance a table they inhabit. Also the scale is quite compatible with
The Cons: Not many! The big beef
I have with these are that the roofs fit awkwardly. They are on the small side,
so you can see the top of the interior wall when the roof in on top. If they were
going to be off, I feel they should be a bit big...not small. That said, That's
really not a huge deal, it doesn't really detract from the models and they still
look real good.
Overall recommendation.......a good
product from JR Miniatures. I would purchase these myself, and feel confident in
their appearance on the table.
4 of 5 stars.....Not always a huge fan of resin models but these are done well with nice detail.
I used a combination of Inks and Drybrushing to paint these....and I thought they took well to the paint
