To evaluate how the plastic kit were assembled and also because I was liking the models, I bought and assembled two PIKO cabins, ‘Brad Fishing Cabin’ 62262 and ‘Old falsington feed & seed Company’ 62112.
What is supplied:
Parts are on two layers, all were there!
Nota: Accessories shown on photos are not supplied.
Moulded plastic parts show wood veins with slightly different colour streaks in satin tone quite realistic. However, door and windows frame have an unrealistic glossy finish. Grey colour of roof aspect is acceptable.
Assembly is quite long. There are many parts, notably for the bracing and support structure. It takes me more than 4 hours for the grocery store and 2 hours and an half for the fishing cabin.
Floor parts are small and shall be carefully glued to guaranty minimum strength. Floor moulds of both cabin have identical shape, but different colour. It might have been preferable to make much larger floor parts.
For aesthetic reasons and to widen terrace area, I modified the railing of the fishing cabin to install the cabin in an angle. I glued the cabin in place , with a hole in the floor for future lighting. I will probably do the same for the grocery store, one I have choosen the side. I will probably make the fishing cabin stair going down in water for a boat access, as I feel it nicer than Piko photos suggestion.
