Walthers tower. I had to scratch build two sides of the chimney from brick sheet ... the kit was missing the other half.

      I can't remember if I wrote about this before, but .... When I opened this kit, it was missing 2 of the 4 sides of the chimney. I was already somewhat deep in the project ... and impatient! ... so I didn't contact Walthers for the parts. Instead, I used strips of Plastruct brick sheet (not the same size of brick, but close enough for eyeballs (though not cameras) and built it around an Evergreen square strip core. I think it was more fun having to problem solve - especially since I was satisfied with the results. The big lesson learned: always inventory kit parts as soon as opening the box (duh!).

      The roof eaves don’t hang over the walls for enough for anyplace south of Milwaukee, really funny looking to my eye, every tower I ever saw had deep eaves.
