I started building my first structure for Koala Creek. It is based on a StructOrama kit and will house “The Koala Creek Chronicle”. As it is my first Structorama kit, I decided to write a review during the building process. Although the box itself looks like it had been printed in the seventies, the content of the box fortunately gives a different view.
It contains a sheet with instructions, clear plastic windows glazing, a bag of parts and a small sheet with transfers.
All the parts are made of the same kind of white translucent plastic and have already been removed from their sprues by the manufacturer. As these parts have only one colour, it looks more like a resin kit then an injection moulded one.
The fact that the sprues had already been removed, allowed me to start building the kit directly … unfortunately it also caused some parts to be slightly damaged.
Once the basic parts of structure had been glued together with super glue, I sprayed it with a couple of thin layers of gray acrylic primer from Humbrol. It brings out the detail of the kit during the build and should be a good base to imitate weathered wood … however, that is something to discuss in Part 2 of this review.
