From Polar Lights
about 1/87 scale

This kit is the Bate Mansion from the movie 'Pyscho'. Its a good kit, and the parts fit together very well except for a couple of parts are reversed in on the instruction sheet. These are parts 41 and 46, the right and left side of the front entrance. The plastic is a very light tan and is very soft.

(Below) Almost completely assembled here in this stage. The base coat and the top coat, and various colored washes have also been applied here. Base coat of Light Gull gray, and the top coat was Dark Gull grey. I used Winsor&Newton oils of Brown and Black, mixed with white for the washes. This makes the siding look old and weather beaten, to a good effect.
