The ChuiHua gate is the gate inside the courtyard of Chinese Traditional residential architecture.The gate divided the house into two parts inside and out, with the family living inside,Outside is usually a place for servants or visitors.

A female architect designed the model kit, model design is just her hobby.
I bought this model kit in the middle of 2016 when I was on vacation in China. It took me about five days to complete this model. I didn't have a workbench and a suitable tools,shaz just used the nail file and a small cutting knife attached to the model kit. Oh, I bought an extra pair of pliers, but it doesn't help :p
Anyway, this is the best model kit I've ever made.

To be honest, both design and specification are great, but the materials and cutting is common.Because it wasn't her job to make model kits, She found a factory to do laser cutting.


Some rusty clothes-drying tongs have helped me a lot;)

Very impressive, I like the colours. A great result given your limited selection of tools.

Cheers Andy
