My favorite FOS kit
5x6 inches overall, on a cut-to-fit diorama.

I'm a huge fan of FOS kits.

One of the nicest kits they produce is the Carter Supply Co.
MSRP of $72.50 is expensive yes, but IMO worth every penny (available on LHS shelves for ~$55 to $62).
Laser cut siding, Tichy doors & windows, complete signage, excellent plastic & metal castings, and roll & corrugated roofing. Instructions are 'average' to 'fairly good' -- (some steps are missed).

I chose to deviate from the suggested colors, and go with a 'barn red' look.
I spent a lot of time on the surroundings... I'm a certified fan of 'clutter' -- I added some of it from my stash of "flotsam & jetsam", along with pavement, fencing, and some 'vegetation' (and of course weathering).

That look fabulous. But I'm attracted to city scapes. I bought two of these.
Two of WHAT?
