This is the first Heller kit I have ever built. It's a pretty nice kit. Had a few small problems but nothing more than you see in a lot of kits. This was built box stock with the only addition was the woodgrained decals that I bought on line. Cutting and fitting all those little pieces was a pain in the you know what. All comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

Nice job. The Heller kits are pretty nice pieces.  The roof looks better on your model than it does on the box art drawings!

Thanks. I was lucky to find these decals. I liked working with them. I had a good time with this build. I think I will build more out of my comfort zone.

Very nice Ray, I have had one of these for years, now not many build them.  I just may have to pull mine out.
