This is a classic Tichy kit, great quality and very fun to build. It is maybe a bit easier than other kits like the ore car or MOW caboose, but still takes a bit of time and a few tools. If you are building an old time, steam era railroad this kit should be bought in multiples. Instructions were nice and clear, and I would recommend with all of their kits that you read them all the way through before starting. This is a good base to build custom/kit bashed cars as well.
