Fascination Station

I got my Fascination Station from HBS/ over a week ago, but just found the time to get it out the box. As far as kits go, this looks like the easiest kit to put together I've ever seen. I love that I can tape the whole thing up so I can see where I'm going to make my modifications. From the pictures on the website I didn't realize that the roof was sloped. Looking again I can see the angle, but didn't notice at first, which makes my addition a little tricky. I'm hoping they can add a side view on the website so its obvious. To add a second story, I'm going to have to cut the walls level to get a flat working space.

I'm planning to make the back of the house be the actual entrance. Here is the view of the two rooms. The smaller room has a ceiling height of 8 1/8" that tapers up to 9 1/8". The larger room has a ceiling height of 10 1/4" and tapers up to 11 1/4".

Sadly, in transit between Georgia and California, one corner of the base was split, I'm hoping I can get a replacement base. Overall, I'm impressed with the kit and can't wait to start building my modern version.

  1. For the base damage, you could always add some wood glue to the cracked areas, and before it dries, sand it down with a wood block and some sandpaper. It will be good as new....You'll never notice once it's painted/detailed.
    Should be a fun project to work on!

  2. To even out the roof you could add a stip like a horizontal window across the back and raise the roof (Oh yeah) to make it even, or level. Like a row of tiny glass bricks legos? Cool project! C

  3. Thanks Anonymous, I might have to do that. I just have this string of luck that I never get anything "NEW". New things I purchase seem to always come with scratches and flaws, and broken corners. With all of the amazing PRD Miniatures and minimodernistas I've gotten new the have been flawless, I was hoping my luck didn't extend to my miniature life, but curses, I would get the busted kit. Just my luck.

    Carol Raise the roof! Ha. Good idea.
