IHC Granite Front building

Did you ever get the urge to built something, anything? I get it all the time and I always turn to my trove of plastic structure kits from the 1970's, 1980's and 90's. These are quick and easy and satisfy the need to build.

A structure like this IHC stone front building is about an 8 hour project not counting the time it takes for the paint to dry. I spray painted all the parts while they were still on the sprue. Then the parts were assembled using ACC and Tenex plastic cement. After assembly I weathered the building with washes of oil colors and with pastel chalks. 

I still need to straighten the railing on the front stairs. They sagged while the glue was setting.
