An excellent model at a really cheap price. As an older Rake's Corner building, the Asylum was best based on very thick card (sketchbook backs are great for this). The shape of the base would have shown up any problems with foam-board. The only difficult item was the balcony. The thick hollow platform and system of beams was a little tricky, but with time and patience, the results are well worth the effort. A fine addition to any fantasy collection but also suitable for Gothic horror and many historical settings. I would hesitate to recommend this model to a novice, get a few simpler models under your belt first. That being said, a must have for any buildings collection.
