Just looking for other members' opinions and experience.

I recently purchased and assembled two model kits from Walthers and feel their quality is quite poor. Specifically, their Cornerstone Merchants Row IV (933-4040) and Life Link Trains (433-1390). The Merchants Row kit of plastic parts had many parts where the part number could not be read due to small size and lack of color distinction between the part and plastic it was attached to. Fortunately, the diagram was sufficiently clear and detailed to allow for sorting this out. The Firehouse kit was much worse. Part numbers could not be read, some parts had no number identifying them, some parts appear to be needed only once but several are included. Also the instructions is condensed in one view - in other words not a different chart for each side of the structure. Condensing this all onto one chart added to the challenge. My best guess is that the box includes parts not needed for this kit but fortunately, I believe no parts are missing - just can not identify all the parts. On this last comment, I found part numbers that are not on the diagram.

Appreciate hearing your experience with Walthers model kits.

I have built one Cornerstone kit, which did not pose any problem; although I messed up on some detail, I do like the result (click image for original):
