I got my Fascination Station from HBS/Miniatures.com over a week ago, but just found the time to get it out the box. As far as kits go, this looks like the easiest kit to put together I've ever seen. I love that I can tape the whole thing up so I can see where I'm going to make my modifications. From the pictures on the website I didn't realize that the roof was sloped. Looking again I can see the angle, but didn't notice at first, which makes my addition a little tricky. I'm hoping they can add a side view on the website so its obvious. To add a second story, I'm going to have to cut the walls level to get a flat working space.
I'm planning to make the back of the house be the actual entrance. Here is the view of the two rooms. The smaller room has a ceiling height of 8 1/8" that tapers up to 9 1/8". The larger room has a ceiling height of 10 1/4" and tapers up to 11 1/4".
Sadly, in transit between Georgia and California, one corner of the base was split, I'm hoping I can get a replacement base. Overall, I'm impressed with the kit and can't wait to start building my modern version.
