North African house

 D70_2652.jpg

North Africa provides the theme for another of the first batch of release by Reality in Scale for their new 1/72 series of diorama accessories, and this North African House. With characteristic doorway and side wall, this provides a good backdrop for a diorama. The quality of the castings is superb, few pieces, and virtually no clean up. The resin was of good quality. 

 

What's in the Box?

There are four resin pieces in the box that require hardly any work. The quality of the resin was top notch.

Remember folks - this is 1/72 scale and the level of detail was excellent.

Even this small doorway had convincing and exceptional detail.

I painted the structure with a variety of acrylic paint, oils, and pastels.

This close-up shows what you can really do with this structure. I'll definitely be looking to use Dio 1/72 products and structures.

 

Overall, this is some great resin casting with excellent detail and easy to assemble. 

Highly Recommended for Beginner to Advanced builders.

Thanks goes out to Dio 1/72 for this review kit.
