Unboxing a French Chateau

This 15mm MDF French Chateau is made by Sarissa Precision. I painted it 'on the sprue' and then built it following the very clear instructions included in the pack. The build was relatively simple, even for someone with little experience in building MDF models. I had a slight struggle with the Dormer windows but I think that was more to do with my ham-fisted approach than the model itself. It's worth keeping a small file handy to smooth the occasional uneven surface or tight-fitting joint. I'd also recommend using rubber bands to hold joints tight while the glue sets....all standard stuff when constructing MDF models. 

This is a great looking model and worth taking your time over. I'm really pleased with the finished model and I'm sure it will feature in many games in the future, either as general terrain or as an objective or strongpoint in its own right.

The instructions are clear and the build was very simple.

I painted the parts 'on the sprue' for a cleaner finish. 

The completed model will grace my table for many years.... this is as close as I am ever likely to get to owning a French Chateau!
