New Project: Bates House

To celebrate Halloween this year, I am putting together a model house kit I was gifted for my birthday - the Bates House from the movie Psycho.  It's a pretty famous house, lol, so I hope I can do it justice!

I'm not sure of the exact scale but it's roughly somewhere between 1:24 and 1:48, so I'm calling it 1:32 scale for the moment.  As it is a model, not a dollhouse, it doen't have access to the inside so to-scale furniture is not an issue :-)

This is what it is supposed to look like when put together in the raw state, although I will probably pre-paint many of my pieces before assembly.

The kit also includes frames for the windows.  Painting and decorating is NOT my forte, so I hope my painting and landscaping can do the house justice!


  1. It's fun to have interesting structures scattered among builds of different sizes on display, and this looks like a nicely detailed and fun kit to build! Have fun with it!

  2. The facade is really interesting with lots of Victorian architectural details !

  3. This is so awesome! :D I love the fancy detailing.
