I bought this to have a complex model on the table and was not disappointed. The construction took a little while (I am slow) but was not difficult. Fits in well with everything from medieval to modern terrain.
I would have loved to see different textures for the side rooms, but considering this is one of 3-4 unique gates that dave makes, I don't think those big layering options are as critical as they are on some other models.
The balconies are a great addition, but I noticed for me that the support beams are too short to line up with the metal plate textures they are supposed to be attached to. Likewise the front rail of the balcony was not quite wide enough, but maybe that's just a problem with my printer. Nevertheless I highly recommend building this with the balconies, it adds a whole other level of play ability to the model.
