The Bird House #‎HBSCreatinContest2015‬

I'm one of the 16 bloggers participating in HBS Miniatures' Blogger Project for the 22nd annual Creatin' Contest. Denise's City Cottage Kit is the limited edition kit for the contest this year. I actually bought two kits for my idea for the contest before I was contacted to join the project. I thought I might need three for my idea, so I jumped at the chnace to join the project, blog my progress and not enter my free kit into the contest.
After I dry fit the kit I realized, wow this is way bigger than I imagined. I must have glossed over the dimensions (20”W x 11 3/4”H x 20 1/4”D) when I thought I needed three to make my house inspired by Alberto Rubio's Bird Houses. Three of the houses joined together is going to be too monsterous, so now I'm trying to reasses my original plan. I may try to take my first two houses and create my original idea, and use the free kit to come up with something else. Back to the drawing board.

  1. I can relate to your dilemma. I have been playing with ideas for this kit for the last 2 months. I think I can finally start construction. You are pretty creative and I am sure you will come up with something really cool.

  2. Three would indeed be massive - though I am sure it would look absolutely stunning!! :-)

  3. If you dropped down in scale from 1/12th scale would that help? I have been working in a smaller scale (said I wouldn't do it but I have! Lol!) and it sure does help with the "massive size" problem!! Can't wait to see what you have done with this!
