For any of you who may purchase and build this kit please make note that the Tower walls parts 14 and 15 have there numbers molded in them reversed, i.e. Part 14 is part 15.

Sorry I ment to post this info weeks ago but keep forgetting, and who knows maybe it was not more then 1 production run of kits that when out the door this way and is now corrected , but you will know if it's wrong when you get to that build point for sure!

Hi all!
Another thing I have been meaning to post about what took place with this build is with the painting of it.

Here's a warning, and a word to the wise!

I was not thinking when I was paint shopping and for a base coat color / primer I used a Testors spray can of a color that as it turns out they do not offer in one of there small bottles, and this made doing touch up's a pain in Butt!
It took me near 1.5 hours to mix up a touch up color that matched good enough to use.

Keep this in mind folks!

Ok, so for the most part the kit is done but for some weathering to the roof after finally settling on what chimney's I will use and where they will go along with some details on the front porch and a weather vain on the high roof's peak.
After that the landscaper's pull up and dig in!

Thanks for your kind words!
I learned and relearned I few things along the way with this kit in regards to the paint that I posted about and then this, read the instructions!

I had a good part of the model glued to its base and then in the assembly process needed to get the long right side of the mid roof in place that runs front to rear on the kit.
I could not get it inplace without cutting loose most of one of the walls from the base and then also notching 2 of the locating tabs on that long roof section.

Of course after I found this problem and referenced the instructions it stated very clearly what the assembly procedure should be.

Yes, it was slap the forehead time for me, lol!
