This is a heavy (30 lb) steel building with laser-cut plastic details. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of trim supplied and the laser etched signage.
The metal roofing is an additional cost, but really adds to the appearance. The assembly was for the most part relatively straightforward, but did require a couple of phone calls to Dan Hoag. A couple of nice features of the building is the removable main roof and signage, the latter being something I will remove to minimize UV damage, when the railroad is not in operation.

Greg, the building comes as a complete weldment except for the main roof. The doors, windows, vent, signs and storefronts are laser cut plastic and need to be painted and assembled. The metal roofing is aluminum sheet that I glued to the roof with black silicon adhesive. The metal parts are powder coated (grey E-coat). For an additional $235, I could have purchased the building completely assembled and painted.

After 25 years of fighting Mother Nature, I decided it would be cheaper to have a few "permanent" buildings rather than constantly repairing or replacing a bunch of less durable buildings.
