Like I said this has to be in the top 10 of your builds.  The detailing is perfect.  Beautiful wood coloring.
Just an all around beauty.

Karl,

I love this build. Just one comment, are you going to add a little weathering to the door and windows? I think they should, in some way, blend in better with the exterior walls.

Hello Karl, I agree with everyone else, this is one of your best builds ever. My only problem is that you keep covering up all the great detail work.    Jeff

Hey Jerry, Tom And Jeff:

thanks for the great compliments. Much appreciated. Got the roof finished today. It is removable so you can see the interior detail. Instead of cap shingles I put A Patina copper roof finial on it. Here's A photo.

Hey Curt, Bob D. and Dennis:

Thanks for the great compliments. Much appreciated. I finished this one up tonight. I did not add track as my friend doesn't know it it will be standard or narrow gauge. Here's the photos.

Any thoughts on the kit?  A good build thread also serves as a review of the kit  ;D

Great job, as usual, Karl..... 8)

I'm really anxious to start mine, but my skills aren't good enough to take on this one yet.  :(
