K6 Telephone Box - OO (1:76, 4mm) Scale

All seven parts laid out - there's seven parts to make painting easier - note the tabs on the sidewalls, these fit into corresponding gaps in the floor and roof.

Dry fit - everything fits together quite nicely, and the sides are straight after a soak in some hot water then laid on a flat surface.

Detail - The door handle has come out real good considering how small it is.

More photos over the next few days when the model is painted and assembled.

My K8 phone box also arrived with the K6, but unfortunately there was a part missing Sad

Wow, one day I hope to have the skill to model pieces that are that tiny and still fit together properly. Smile

Yes, well done. It is amazing how small it is yet it looks perfect. Is this printed in Ultra detail material?

Thanks ana & MoST.

Yes, the model is in FUD, the material is probably just about perfect for 1:76 scale modelling.

@ana, with FUD, I've found that if model parts fit together on the screen, they'll fit together once printed.

I also modelled the 1926 K2 phone box which is in the process of being painted (the inside is nearly finished).

Cheers,
Paul

@Paul, if you're able to get a pic up of the phone booth assembled against a black background I'd love to feature it in Friday Finds tomorrow

I already started the painting process, but I can do an assembled model coated with with grey primer if that's ok?

That's fine. it'd be great to send the model some love, but I don't want to cause a lot of hassle for you in the process. If it's doable, go for it!

Is this ok? Crop as you see fit Smile

p.s. the background is a T-shirt from New York that my neighbour bought back as a present for me last month, & my daughter will be visiting NYC in October with her school... I could do the phone box in a black New York ashtray too.

GREAT!

The shadow being cast looks really dramatic. I'll be sure to mention that it's just 3 cm. Smile

Now you just need the model of Superman jumping out of the booth in his tights ready to go!

If that is mm on the ruler then it is 35mm top to bottom?

Yep, that's mm on the ruler, all in all, the model is a tad under 35mm tall.

The painting side of things is going slow though.
