Sorry about that last entry. I had really debated about really bringing up what happened to the ARC. But BK (bless his heart) pointed out that folks might wonder why all entries about the ARC not just ended….but possibly appear out of order if I end up writing future entries of things I already did with the (now missing) ARC.
Talk about a good point. Score one for BK in this round I guess.
Yes folks, I did reorder the ARC on Etsy. I went back to 3StarStudio’s shop and ordered another ARC kit. So Z & KP, if you are both reading this, I’m so sorry for the derailment. I’m still intent on continuing to chronicle the build once ARC II (my name for the second kit) arrives at my doorstep.
While we’re in the topic of 3StarStudio…..I do want to relay the shop’s newest miniature additions. Warning: the stuff is 1/24 or 1/2 scale. So for you fans of half-scale miniatures, have I got some kickass news for you!
Behold from the creative minds of Z and KP — the Butterfly Dollhouse!
Yes, it is a half-scale size house. But check out the lattice work in the front! It looks amazing! It looks like it could be a fantastic pool house, or a a very chic hotel….or maybe a museum of modern art…? Based on the photos on the Etsy listing, it has 3 (?) rooms and its overall size after assembly is 18.5″ W x 11.5″ D x 11.5″ H = a nice centerpiece on your table if you’re up for it.
This is super tempting….but I must be good. I’m already occupying the master bath as my storage unit for my minis. And it’s gotten more full due to some recent shopping at my local miniature shops (retail therapy….that’s my story and I’m sticking to it). But then again….it’s half scale, so it shouldn’t be a problem to find a space to display it right?
(Meanwhile, I can hear BK groan from his office next door)
Of course, to go with this beauty, 3StarStudio is also selling furniture to go with the Butterfly Dollhouse. Are these not adorable or what???
I’m going to lose my mind. If anyone has already purchased these from Z & KP, do share. So the rest of us can live vicariously through you. Seriously.
