I love verlinden resin diorama bases & buildings...good detail & quality. This one is really good, if you can get it , grab it! It's called "street fighter".

Hello David,

I like Verlinden also, but this one had some issues in the casting department. The contact edges were not straight, had a "bow" to it. Which makes for a long day on the bench trying to fill in the gaps after the glue drys.

See ya in the funnies.............

I like the looks of Verlinden's buildings, but refuse to buy any more until they can figure out a way to detail both sides of the walls. Those flat, featureless insides are a huge turn off for me. I'm fully aware of the limitations of casting resin, but other companies manage to cast things in 3D). I wish someone could produce a building that combines the quality of Verlinden's exterior detail with the presence of interior detail in Miniart''s buildings.
