What interested me most about this product was the resin doors and windows, and the potential time saving in construction from not having to hand cut all of the doorways and window openings into the foamcore. That plus all of the resin door and window pieces are precision made to fit into the pre-cut holes in the foamcore. Having just spent a lot of time cutting windows and doorways into a bunch of foamcore buildings for Mordheim, I was more than a little excited about the thought of rapid construction with precision-cut components. Turns out I was mostly right.
Resin components - Doors and Windows: 10 out of 10 stars
Great stuff! Beautifully modeled, ornate and detailed with skulls and intricate scroll work in the window frames, these are an incredible value. The resin is thick, strong and had very little flash, which cleaned up easily. Both of the open doorway pieces were a little warped on arrival, but straightened out readily when placed in boiling water for a minute or two. These resin pieces are probably the best terrain bargain I've ever found. For $6 you get 6 window frames, one closed door frame and one open door frame with a separate door. And these aren't tiny doors and windows. Each window frame measures 1.7 inches (43mm) wide by 2.7 inches (68.5mm) tall and are about 5mm thick. The doors are larger. Doorways are 1.7 inches (43mm) wide but are a towering 3.05 inches (77.5mm) wide.

Unfortunately, the spackle fix takes quite a while, and has to be repeated because the Spackle shrinks when dry, and then all of the precision window and doorway cut-outs have to be carefully sanded and resanded and each window and doorway piece adjusted. Not too bad but tedious, and any time saving is totally lost. And because so much of the foam is lost in the corner joins, it was very hard for me to get the corner to look okay with Spackle alone. However, I used the old tried and true method of hiding the join under a piece of cardstock cut to resemble cornerstones. Problem solved.
After that it was ready for basing. I based it on a piece of vinyl floor tile, added a ground floor from Hirst Arts floor tiles, and upper floors from foamcore covered with craft sticks. Painted up and ready to go.
