Overall, very glad I picked this firehouse for my layout, brings back a lot of fond memories from my youth. Very nice design and leaves a lot of options for painting/detailing. Liked the lookout tower very much, Plenty of room inside for lighting, a couple fire trucks and more.
I did have some issues though with the kit
1) The instructions were a bit vague in spots, especially with the garage door assembly, I did figure it out but it was a bit daunting at first.
2) An extra part was enclosed that didn't belong to this kit, turns out it belonged to the police station. Thankfully, the parts for the firehouse were all accounted for, nothing missing.
3) The air raid siren was in my opinion very insubstantial, looking more like a tiny steam whistle. A much beefier and realistic looking siren modeled after a real existing one would've been nice. On mine, I wound up getting a 3D printed replica of a real life siren.
Quibbles aside, this is a very classic brick cirehouse that will be a very good addition to a layout, lights up real nice too at night with LED's
