What's in the box? Brigade Model

Ordered on 02AUG and received on 22AUG: slightly on the slow side even for across-the-pond delivery...

So what's in the box? Both buildings are solid single piece of resin with a (two for the bigger one) hole underneath... The bigger one is 10 cm x 9 cm x 5 cm (longest dimensions), the smaller being 9 cm x 8 cm x 4cm.
So what do I think? 

The underside will need some good sanding in order to get them laying flat. No big deal. More disappointing are the bubbles (some fairly large) found at pretty much every "convex corner" of the windows frame. 

Finally, and Mr Harold's table is proof that it isn't much of a problem once based, painted and viewed from playing distance/angle, but they do seem a bit out of scale to me... The lowest parts of the buildings, can't be anything but a single story and are 3 scale-meters tall, the door is 2,4 scale-meter high by 1,4 scale-meter wide (while the "garage door" is also 2,4 m by 1,7m), the widows go from 1,3 to 2,2 scale-meter from the ground, and so on. Putting a mini next to it (an unbased Khurasan not-arab), the door does indeed look a bit on the imposing side and the windows start at shoulder height (the base should make it a bit better). Not so bad that I wouldn't use them (especially for aliens on the tallish side), but a bit off...
