This is the Kallentaler 'Farmhouse and Barn' kit from Archistories. For those not familiar, Archistories kits come from Germany in an attractive and protective cardboard envelope:


The finished kit product:

A keen eye might notice that the roof windows and side door position are different between the model and the Archistorie's photo. The kit is amenable to different variations Wink

This is the second Archistories kit that I've built and it had the same precision I experienced with the 'Wassermuehle im Bieberbachtal' (# 706160) kit. The only difficulty encountered with this Kallentaler kit was with the barn's outer-most cardboard corner post which buckled/deformed when I applied pressure to seat the inner roof structure (I'd like to see these posts laser cut from real hardwood). Otherwise, the pieces fit together without issue and this was a fun one to put together.

I like variation in roof coloration on a layout, so a bit of olive acrylic paint and a bit of weathering to get to this:
