Having probably bored you with my recent building purchases and reviews you may not want to even read this one. Please do as I feel so strong about this kit.
For my recent birthday I was asked what I would like and I mentioned Café Gondree. To cut a long story short a model representing this was purchased from an Auction site for me.
I am sad to say that in my opinion this is the worst model I have ever seen. It is usually advertised for £20 but can start at a £10. Maybe if you got it at that price including postage it maybe worth investing the time to make something out of this pig of a kit.
It appears to me that very little time has been invested in this kit to get it right. No realistic chimney, the tiles are appalling (looks like a copy and paste on the CAD program, has the designer even seen a roof?), no building detail, no doors, ridge tiles and the roof joints are a joke.
Like the designer I won’t spend too much time on this kit to finish it, if at all. In my opinion SAVE YOUR MONEY.
