Ive seen a few very nice builds on this and had the kit so I thought Id give it a try. I used cedar cut from cigar wrapper for the shingles instead of the campbells shingles. I just never have good luck with those shingles. I also put a top on the water tank with a small hatch and handle. Added a few barrels and did some light weathering. Im happy with the way it turned out. Now to get my layout built so I can place it somewhere.

Nice looking structure. You've got to love those cigar wrapper shingles. I've always thought those made the best looking shingle.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Those shingles are a pain to cut and glue on, but I like the results.
