"Great looking"
This is a great looking kit, not the easiest model to put together though, with different colored parts and small details.this kit might have you scratching your head, while working on it, but when you complete it, you’ll be happy with the product))

"Good kit"
Highly detailed kit. Not recommend for a first time kit builder due to the kit featuring a lot of small and detailed parts. However, kit is very attractive when completed and will fit well with any 1900s-present day layout.

"Not typical of Walters' structures"
joe.defeo (Lewes, DE)
Nicely detailed building, moderately difficult to assemble with easy directions to follow for the most part. Highly recommend to dry fit all parts before cementing them in place. The Floor however does not fit no matter how you try and place it in the structure. The trouble is the back wall is a little shorter than the other walls. The floor section has a small wall that is edge glued to the rear wall to make up the height difference, however, this piece does not fit will and leaves a gap when trying to attach the floor to the other walls. After multiple tries to get things to fit I gave up and finished the structure without using the floor. I took the small foundation wall attached to the floor, cut it free from the floor and glued that to the back wall. I also had to sacrifice the small foundation detail at the bottom, but at least the structure sits flat on the layout. Other than this it is a typical Walthers strcuture with decals and inside window treatments etc. Overall this is not a typical Walthers product and they need to go back to the drawing board on this one. One nice thing is that it is a left hand corner structure... one of the few out there.

"Great details"
I brought the Argosy bookstore building a few months ago. My first Walthers produce, the quality and detail is second to none. After opening the kit to inspect, there was virtually no molding flash, all the parts where straight, and accounted for. The directions were clear and easy to follow, but this project required some skill to construct. Lots of small detail pieces around the windows and roof, also the walls and foundation had a very small margin for error. I recommend dry fitting all parts before starting the project. It took some work to get all the corners, foundation, and chimneys to line up and fit correctly. The large windows in front provide me the opportunity to create an interior scene to add some uniqueness to the project. Overall this is one of my favorite project so far, due to it great details, three molded colors (no paint needed), and window treatment.
