French dormer building

I bought this 20mm MDF building by Charlie Foxtrot at Devizes as it fitted my usual 120mm x 120mm building template. I've yet to see how it fits with my 18th century buildings. but I suspect it might look rather large. Assembly is relatively straight forward and it can be made with the rear extension on either side. The joints were very tight in places and needed filing to fit (probably better this way than loose).

The nicest part is the separate window frames and the very thin MDF shutters

As recommended I used PVA and sand to render the walls to hide the joins. The chimneys and ridge tiles were "everygreen" plastic, but I used card for the ridge tiles.

For scale I've added one of the Fabbri diecasts
