"Excellent model that requires a lot of time and care to assemble"

This kit is a very close approximation of plastic pellet storage facilities in use across the US. For my purposes the silos were spaced too far apart, and this appears to be true for the ones I've seen in real life. However there was no way I was going to rebase the silos and trim all the piping, so I made do as is. It goes together pretty well, but I advise that you go slowly and let your glue dry thoroughly before proceeding to the next step. It will also take some patience to clean the flash from the delicate pipes, but it has to be done. The silos come in three pieces each, two sides and a top. I had to use a number of clamps to hold them while they dried to make sure they stayed round. I did not use the included pump house as my pipes go directly into the adjacent building. I'm very happy with the completed building as it very closely matches my prototype (Allied Extruders in Blissville, Long Island). Finally, my prototype and most of the ones I've seen in the wild are a light blue color. I used Vallejo Sky Blue and airbrushed on about three coats.

"Good kit with many uses, Easy to assemble, looks great"

This was the perfect finishing touch to a scratch built bakery. The kit was easy to assemble with the clear, quality instructions. All of the parts were included with non missing nor broken nor molded improperly. Assembly was quick, however, trimming the flash on the smaller more delicate tubing was time consuming. From the included pictures you can see I modified this a little, foregoing the base a adding other details to give the impression of bakery silos. The plastic is good quality although railings and ladders are a bit oversized. Included in this kit is an extra ladder, safety cage, and brackets, extra fittings, and decals.
