Hi everyone. He is a build I am just finishing up on. It is the ITLA Olympia Tile kit and decided to build mine out into ACE Millwork & Cabinets. It is going on my own layout. Quite happy with it - neat little building that fits exactly into the area I wanted to put it. Pretty easy construction and then of course painted and detailed. Here are some of the features:

ACE Millwork & Cabinets
- Base kit - ITLA Olympic Tile, HO scale. Used some spare ITLA sidewalk pieces for the base from another kit.
- Pained with Mission Models acrylic paints. Great acrylic paints if you have never used them before. Mostly military colours, but some weathering, metals and modern equipment colours as well. Great for airbrush and you can also brush paint them as well. Some other use of Tamiya and Mig Ammo for some of the other painting.
- Weathered using Pan Pastels, Mig Ammo pigments, washes and other weathering enamels. Abtleilung 502 oils.
- 3D printed details (roof hatch, roof drains etc. Other cast metal, cast resin and laser cut details from a wide variety of manufacturers. Preiser figures.

Here are some pictures of what I built:

Fantastic details, Karl. I have one of their kits, and every time I see your work, I want to get it started. plenty of great ideas here.

Give it a go Tony. I quite like their kits and have built a number of them. They are easy to put together, giving time for painting, weathering and detailing. They fit will into the scheme of my layout and modelling in general and like most kits I build, I can change around the signage and details and make the building more unique and different for my own layout. Good for kit bashing!

Tremendous job Karl --- a perfect example of how a smaller, relatively non-descript structure can be made to 'shine' with the excellent use of paint colours, weathering and detail parts.

Where did you source the 3D printed parts???
