… which is why it’s taken a little bit longer to get all of our models into production. A combination of a failed temple mould (and a master destroyed trying to get it out of the mould !) and a leaky mould box (which is messy…) meant that a couple of models have been delayed slightly. The Pantheon mould has now been repaired and a replacement temple master has arrived, so it’s full steam ahead again. Below you can see the first casting of the Pantheon, the new master of the temple and, as a bonus, the diminutive Temple of Vesta, the reconstructed ruins of which are located in the forum in Rome.
In the same box which brought the new temple were some considerably bigger offerings. Our new 6mm Desert Dome buildings have been strong sellers since they were released, and we’ve had a number of comments along the lines of “I’d like to see these in 15mm”. Ever willing to please, I’ve scaled up the three smaller models as you can see below. These are the basic structures without doors, windows and details – as a guide to size, the mat they are on has a 1cm grid, and the taller tower is around 12cm high. Although I’ll start mould-making straight away, it’ll take a little while to get all three ready – I simply don’t have enough Lego to make mould boxes for all three at one go !
