|Close up view of the front. I mistakenly put the back side window in the front of the house |
and it was too late to change it after I discovered my error
|Rear view of the cabin. The two second story windows should be in the front of the house.|
|First and second floor sections are completed.|
The chimney and roof are the final pieces to be constructed.
|The finished model sits on my game table.|
The finished model looks good as is, but most people will probably want to paint the model and glue it to a base.
In summary, this is a good looking model that has a couple of fiddly bits in the construction ( the front porch posts and beams that support the roof gave me a lot of trouble). It is not a kit that you will finish in one evening. I worked in a series of 2-hour sessions over the course of two days. The kit price is $36.00 for the wood model, which seems reasonable relative to other resin alternatives that are on the market.
I recommend the kit and I would purchase it again if I was making the choice. I wish that 4Ground would make a barn to go along with it. I also have a two-story block house ($79 price) to build and while it is rated a "4" level of difficulty, I'm not quite ready to give it a go because it looks more complex than the cabin.
