I have built over the years several HO structures from GC Laser. They are always interesting. Written instructions along with the diagrams would be helpful in some cases. You need to take your time but process is always interesting. I have begun the rental unit and if I like the results might buy the whole set.
This is a superbly designed kit. Everything fits. The shingling method is the best I have encountered. BUT, I had to do a lot of re-reading and head scratching over the diagrams before I was able to figure out just how things were to go together. Almost everything is included in the diagrams, but there are no written instructions. We are given options about which side of the building we want to have the window, and thee are multiple door options, but one has to discover this on his own, after a lot of puzzling. We are directed to the web site where there are videos, but the videos really don't address the construction issues. There is one serious such issue--the ridge caps. They are individual, and numerous, and asymmetrical and there is No guidance about how to put them on. I bought two of these kits, and the office, and will have no trouble with the other two now that I understand the diagrams. However I remain clueless about the ridge caps. Were it not for that, I would give this kit a 5 star rating.
