Uncle Toms cabin ?

Being on somewhat of a ACW  roll at the moment I  finally got this Perry cabin finished.

It was purchased about 3 years ago from a modelshop in Porthmadog in N. Wales and has been languishing in a cupboard since then . Its based on General Meade's H.Q. at Gettysburg. About 17 years ago I visited the battlefield of Gettysburg and can remember sheltering from the blazing sun on the porch of this building.

It was a bit fiddly to put together but looks the part when finished.

I mounted it on a piece of thin MDF , it comes with several sections of fencing which I decided not to use with this model and only added 2 sections of garden fencing to pretty it up . The Perry's do a store adaption to this kit as well although I have not seen this yet.
