I showed off this kit in my post about the Beijing club, it's a 1/72 WWII building kit that works perfectly with GW figures and fits the whole GW architecture scheme as well. I was a bit worried about the 1/72 scale but it does fit most human sized models.

The building is stackable with usable interiors.

I got one for myself today, they were sold out of the first floor (have it on order) but they had 2 of the expansion floors.

On with the show!

The box, you should be able to order it at your local model shop

Nice, man! Those will do you totally solid! About how much does it cost per floor?

Man, I wish there was a real Black Library where I could get a Black Library Card and take out Black Library Books without having to buy them. Of course, late fees would be your soul. But it would be worth it. - InquisitorMack

Here's the thread with some pictures of a full building

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/215167.page

I found the ground floor and one upper story online for $32

The upper floor is $17

Here in Beijing they were about $14.

Personally I find the scale of the building a bit on the short side. The 28mm minis look inside a house made for small children in a amusement park.

The big problem is the interior doors. Those walls can be left out without hurting the model, or even replaced with plasticard.

Your house would look small to if an 8 foot man in power armor were traipsing around in it.

Amidst the mists and coldest frosts he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

I've primed one floor with tamiya's red-brown and added some posters.

Obviously needs some brown paint and black ink.

Especially with huge bases attached to the soles of their feet.

Meh, I knew the scale was small when I started. If I see something comperable in 1/48 I'll get it but for now this is fine.

I doubt you'll find much in 1/48th scale.

Maybe a better option for larger models is model Railway 'O' guage.

My local store has these in, and they seem to do the job.

If nothing else, I can use the kits for alternate floors and pad it with either plasticard replacements or foamcard.

Seems possible, like I said I found the 1st floor set (which includes 1 extra floor) for $36 on line. I can believe it's $50 retail.

I'll have new pictures soon.
