Lincoln Building (TTCombat)
The minis used for scale reference are from Pulp City and all are mounted on 30 mm round lip bases.
Like the other TTCombat kits I have acquired and built so far, I am very happy with this one. In terms of cost, it can be bought for £25.95 including postage from the TTCombat web-site or Ebay. To me that is excellent value, especially given the table-top footprint of this as a scenery piece.
The fire escapes can accommodate 3 minis on 30 mm round bases at the same time, which is handy.
The build time was around 3 hours, with the bulk of that time occupied by preparing and positioning the window frames (48 of those) and the fire escape. The instructions are not great, but overall it is a pretty straight-forward kit to put together.
The painting was mainly done using a 4 inch paint roller while parts were still on the frames, with final touch up after assembly, except for the door, which is easiest to do before main assembly. I set up with 4 main colours and 4 rollers, meaning primary painting was around 30 minutes in two stints form the two sided of the frames. Another 45-60 minutes or so was needed for touch up painting (inside edges of parts etc.).
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this kit. It was nice and easy to put together (although my clumsiness meant I damaged one of the fine window pieces on the ground floor), and simple enough to paint.
