Cheap Wood Houses

I picked this up this past Saturday when checking out Michaels for craft projects for my daughter.

It is a Creatology Ranch House Wooden Puzzle.  It cost me $1.00 US.

It looks like it's scaled OK for 1/72.  It took about 10 minutes to assemble; no glue required.

The pieces come on two wooden sheets.  You simple punch them out and slide the tabs together.  They may make a nice framework from which to create your own house.  The shingles, windows and doors are printed on in black.  There isn't a whole lot of detail.

The chimney is the worst part.  Not bad for $1, but is it worth the effort to detail up and repaint?  We'll see one day...
