After a lot of pondering I have decided to build this little vegetable and fruit stand.  The roof sign will probably be changed to FRUKT - GRONNSAKER as it will possibly end up being sited around the corner of my Bergen Warehouses on the new Norwegian layout.

Here is the box shot and the contents of the box............

Thanks Mike and Pol.Lux, I have chosen this because it can be international, everyone has market stalls...........the build should not take long and it is bit unusual.

Mike.........

Glad you are trying one of these kits.  I've met the owner/operator of the company, David Proell.  He's super cool and these turn out great kits.  He offers a lot of period detail items to go with his kits.    Barrels and crates and such.

He prints up signs in ten year intervals for period advertisements.

He also makes a sheet of license plates for cars..... A very cool detail.

You listening Dan ! ! ! !

Again Mike....

very cool

Thanks Jan, Greg, John and Donato......

Bob I agree. The kits are well thought out and fairly reasonably priced. I think I have built about 30 of them so far!

Continuing...............

This kit is not rocket science and makes a good entry level kit for a beginner.

First you brace the front wall with some lengths of supplied 6x6.

Then I painted the main walls and the doors/windows.

Then I glued said windows and doors into the walls before glazing them. Using a cocktail stick I just spread the thick white Glue N Glaze.
