Summary

This is an original design I came up with to (well, it's what I do) push the limits of what a Makerbot printer can do. I hoped the high level of detail in the stonework would show, and, as you'll see, it prints quite nicely. It's shown here in MakerBot's Slate Gray ABS.
I want to see some cool dioramas cropping up here on Thingiverse!
Enjoy!

This was a really nice design. I did have one question though, there doesn't appear to be a door. I didn't even notice it until I started looking at my print (I'll upload it soon as a make). Maybe I am just missing it but I sure can't find it. Also the hollow base, as others have mentioned seems a bit puzzling. I ended up using support there -- but probably could have gotten away without it. In any case really like this.

Fantastic Print in ABS .2 layer height. Did at full scale, 1/2 and 1/4 and each printed well on my Powerspec 3D Pro. There is a small hollow indentation on bottom but didn't cause any pain. Great model.

Why does this have a hollow base? It causes an air print?

what are the printomatic settings that were used to print this?

Any chance of getting a scaled down version of this? I'd like to print one at 50%, but scaling in slic3r gave me something unprintable. Thanks!
