Nice kit and a fun build. Absolutely zero flashing on the plastic! Nice brick and stonework.

The plastic coloring was right on so I just used dry brushing and washes to give it a nice weathered effect.

I only have two critiques about the kit:

1) This is a "snap" kit. I like to dry fit parts but some of the pins and receptacles are so tight that I broke one of the pins taking it apart. Not a deal breaker because I glue my kits.

2) The included "glass" is clear plastic that is so thick it looks ridiculous; especially on the doors. Though most kits seem to use plastic that is much to thick for glass. I like to save the clear plastic from merchandise packaging. I cut my own windows and it looks so much better.

This came out beautiful. What kind of paint did you use for the dry brushing and wash? Acrylic, Enamels? Great job.

Well made. I don’t use the clip system and cut off the pins the glue together which I find gives a better fit.
Take care I like Marklin and will defend the worlds greatest model rail manufacturer.

I use Model Master enamel and Basic acrylic artists paints for dry brushing. I tend to make my own washes with acrylics. Lately, I've been using Woodland Scenics wash; I'm really liking it.
