With your talent, Candy, you're sure to love Downtown Deco kits. Their castings are just great and they take paint and weathering unlike any other material. Having built most of their offerings in O scale, I can vouch for one "watch-it" suggestion. Be careful how you put the castings down on the work surface. I'm not sure I've built any of the kits without cracking at least one wall. Maybe it's been the size of the O scale castings or maybe I'm just a klutz. But, don't get all worked up about it. They will glue together very easily and the resulting "crack" if it shows will add even more realism to a plaster wall. Looking forward to your progress reports.
