I have finally finished a modified version of the Campbell Richmond Barrel kit... it's hiding in there somewhere! I started out by rearranging the various sections of the building, and then decided to reposition the doors - the kit had a double doorway centered right under the middle of a load bearing upper story wall. That got me to thinking about how I was going to hide the hole... the kit intends you to cover it all in corrugated metal, LOTS of metal! I decided to rip a bunch of veneer into 12" boards and use it for horizontal siding, and use the corrugated metal just on the roof.

I have a friend with a small winery, and used the computer to create a sign from his label. His winery dates back to the Twenties, so I tried to go for a pretty worn, but still functional looking building, in need of repair.

Put too much time into detailing and lighting the interior, including flickering LEDs inside the cressups, that no one will see from outside! Live and learn.

Enjoyable project. Campbell is a good reliable base for improvising.

It looks very realistic. Good job. Your modifications make a lot of sense.

Campbell kits are a lot of fun.

Love it!

The interior detail is great and the side profile of the man is fab.

Cheers, Mark.
