This is a 1 inch scale German Christmas Stall from Cynthia Howe kit I finally got around to completing. It sat forlorn in a box for a year before I got around to it.
Unlike many Cynthia Howe kits, this one was not entirely laser cut. In fact, the structure uses 1/8" to 1/4" plywood cut on a table saw. Staining all the wood pieces saves a lot of time in painting and touch ups, but wood stain has terrible noxious fumes and it takes almost a day to dry completely. The all wood look also replicates real life market stalls seen in Germany---look it up on a web search.
In addition to gluing, we had to add some nails, too, but not too many. The basic structure was pretty easy.
Wiring and HIDING the light wires kept me up at night. That, and figuring what my market stall should be filled with, since I opted out of buying CH's line of laser cut creches, ornaments etc.
My 8-year old son helped me add "snow" (Snow Tex) to the roof. All the random dabs are his.
