First time I tried one of these kits. Walls are a very thick paper like material and everything is laser cut. Walls can be configured into twelve different designs.
Scratchbuilt the water tower and dock from scale lumber. Added window shades, two Woodland Scenics figures. Designed and cut JBSC stencil on Cricut. Added floor to dock area along with barrels, etc. Spent a great deal of time getting bricks and mortar correct.
Paints and weathering: YES!

I'm seeing lots of tanks, ships and planes so hes one for the car guys. Finished this last march after it sat for almost 2 yrs 70% done. It's a modified and kitbashed ZZ Top 34 Ford kit. I channeled, lowered, tubbed and narrowed rearend. Extending the frames, built a drop straight front axle. Parts box interior, big block Chevy motor from the Maxx Ratt kit. Photo etched grill and misc, parts with aftermarket wheels.
