@mrtn: Thanks! Nah, the roof is glued on because it's rather flimsy by itself and I would have had to add some reinforcing bits to keep it removable and somewhat sturdy at the same time.
@Corvussanctus: Oh yes, I know what it's like. This one I've just had for a week or so but for instance that GW modular hill has been lying around primed for a few years. Once you get to do it it goes really quickly anyway. Especially that barn.The thing that took the most time was probably cutting out the base and waiting for paint to dry.
@kublai: Oh yes, it's really, really handy. The horrible thing is that I need so much terrain in theory. This barn is HIGHLY usable for a ton of periods and theatres so it's quite a godsent but guess what - for 28mm 18th to mid-20th century (non-urban) stuff, this is probably the only piece of terrain I have. (hills/forests aside).
@basher: There will be a size comparison picture along with more pictures of the finished barn in the full review. Should be up in a few days.
I'll go open a new painting log for my American Civil War stuff now. Hope to see you there!
