First CaDA model and very favourably impressed by the quality of the build and precision of the bricks. It will be used for a Coronation display and I'm hoping to custom light it. On that it would be good if CaDA had a lighting partner, in this case for example internal lighting plus red white a blue spots on rotation would be amazing. My only minor quibble with the model is the rather bizarre number of bags for the whole build randomly distributed in the packaging alongside numbered bags that do follow the instructions, although the link between the two is not clear. I'd also recommend you go for more smaller tiles for the forecourt in future editions, there is a risk of these larger panels bending as they heat and cool in sunlight. But all in all an amazing model that will delight the local kids when displayed in May.
Being an AFOL for 40+ year's I have accumulated a large Lego collection and many ' one off ' models. In all that time I have been looking for a realistic version of the Buckingham Palace. Then I found what looked a realistic version in CaDFI Master collection. Ok, was not cheap, but for 5604 pieces it was in comparison to Lego, reasonable priced, so with both feet in, I ordered it.
For that I have NO REGRETS, it was, and is a remarkable model. I can not fault anything whether fitting of the parts, the 7 manuals included, or the finished product.
The only advise I will give is, in parts it can be a fragile build at some stages, but it eventually a extremely solid build.
Praise must to to the designer: Tobias Theme, and to the manufacturer's well produced parts.
All of you should be proud.
Enjoy life. Bob Sangster.
