    I finished my first wooden structure kit tonight (see pic below). It's the first time I ever worked with wood kits, so was a real learning exercise. The guys over at the Railroad-Line forum were kind enough to answer my questions, always with a cheerful and helpful reply, on working with wood. This kit is the Yard Office by Tomason. I think it's out of production now, but was really nice to work with.

    Welcome to the world of wood kits. now you are in you will get hooked fast. next step scratch building them and that is the fun part. I will use Plastic buildings only for my brick byildings. if it is wood it is wood on my layout. nothing looks as good as wood. and Great job on your first kit. better than i did.

    It's not just the building but the excellent finishing touches that make this a great model.
    Nice work Eddie
