Customer comment about Small Water Tower Card Kit

" I'm very pleased with the .pdf kits, all have been spot on in terms of fit and level of detail, the instructions are really easy to follow. By the way, building your card kits has been a great boost to my confidence in trying out card kits again. So far, Swanage Coal Stage and the accompanying Small Water Tower are now complete. "
