The Windmill was a bit of a challenge to assemble, but the main problem is that not many of the parts were numbered. Many of the parts were just loose, rather than hooked to a plastic strip with a number next to them, as some were. Also the picture on the box was actually reversed from what the model turned out to be. I think they printed it backwards. (This one might be the correct way.) The result doesn't look quite as good as the picture. It would require some painting. In spite of the shortcomings, I loved the result. Even without anything painted, there are enough colors to make this look very nice. This is one of the nicest scale model buildings you are going to come across. The added extras of the lady hanging up the wash and two cows included really makes it come to life. They put a lot of detail into this model and it really shows. Of the dozen or so scale model buildings that I have, I like this the best. If you think you might want it, get it now, as I was told that some of the Life-Like Trains buildings are disappearing and may never return to market. They are the quite economically priced, compared to other scale model buildings, which can get very expensive. They also have a very realistic look. You won't be disappointed. Just be sure you have patience to assemble the kit. A younger child might find it too difficult. There are a lot of tiny parts to glue together. Be careful not to lose any! I lost one small one for a while, but finally located it. Requires modeling cement (not included) and some pieces of thread to make the clothes lines (also not included). A really fun model.

Nicely detailed for out of the box, you can paint it to make it more realistic. I put other models together and this is much easier, fits right in my train village. Love it!

Very fun to build and looks great in my layout. I had the most fun of any model with this little shack and windmill. Awesome details!

This kit is well made and of good quality. A good kit for most modelers and well suited for an ho train scene.

My 7 year old grandson loved this. It's not difficult to build, and he spent hours on the challenge of painting it to look weathered and "real" instead of too clean and plastic. The detail is great, with little people and animals. I will no doubt purchase more of these kits as the train set becomes more elaborate.

The finished product, once it was assembled, was very nice but it was a lot of work. Each piece required sanding or finishing to get it to insert into the kit. As kits go this one was a major undertaking.

This western homestead piece goes very nicely with my HO scale layout set in the 1930's. The model was easy to paint and easy to assemble even though some of the parts were quite small. I liked the fact the the windows were already white so they did not need to be painted. That saved a great deal of time and effort trying to get the detail just right. I look forward to purchasing more Life-Like sets for my layout.

this item looks good in picture and once assembled adds a great old days scenery to our christmas village.but a word of warning if you have poor eye sight better have someone assemble it for you as it contains a lot of small pieces that have to be glued together also assemble instructions are not the best.the information in ad did not indicate item has to be glued together

I have placed these kits on my HO layout as part of the overall scenery and have had lots of fun painting and detailing as with all my model kits and dioramas (as seen in my gallery) I would definately recommend these kits to anyone over 10 yrs that has some model building skills.

This little homestead kit was and still is perfect for a turn of the century layout. Even today the town I modeled with this kit (Bisbee, AZ), one would easily believe he had gone back 125 or so years were it not for the automobiles.
