I put this right beside a window to take the photo, but it is still rather dark!
Glossy red roof and dark green base. Gloss white hinged fronts and the original windows are missing so I sourced some wooden ones which I think add some detail, though the hand cut apertures are not entirely accurate and I have to shave a little off the frames to make them fit. There is evidence that the original frames were a bright turquoise blue.
Inside, one up, one down, is very small. Barely big enough for 1:16 scale.
House measures 40 x 20 cm and 32 at roof apex. Room heights almost 13 cm downstairs and 10 upstairs.
