my skills are not the greatest but that looks like a VERY possible build ( even at my skills ). it's mostly flat stock so it looks very easily do able.

Definitely doable!!! The thing to remember about scratchbuilding is to break the project down into smaller, basic shapes... This one looks pretty basic. Like Leo said, stock up on Evergreen Strip and sheet and build on!
