new Modular building system

Hi All
I just released a modular building system for more modern style buildings. First is a stare kits for a concrete two story office/warehouse building that is a scale 30 by 90 feet +/-.
Will have a brick version soon ( have some new material on the way so might not need painting). Along with add on kits plus one with large factory windows.
Starter kits has 20 wall panels ( 10 for each floor) and all the widows/doors plus 4 skylight kits
Photos are of the starter kit and the one 3 story is in Z scale, starter kit plus part of a second floor add on kit Add on kits will have up to 10 wall panels, pilasters and support beams
plus the required windows and doors. If these go will there will be more on the way.
the starter kit is 49.99 but on sale on the website ow for 35.oo
thanks

To be honest, I'm not impressed.  Looks a bit cobbled up from odds and ends.  The parts don't seem to fit well - lots of gaps everywhere.   If I buy a laser cut kit, I don't' want to have to spend time filling gaps. Maybe puttied and painted it will look a bit better.

But I also wasn't impressed with the N Scale Architect curtain wall building flats. They also had that cobbled-up look.

Looks like Section 8 housing, or government offices (same thing).

Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Thanks for the comments, yes modular do look pieced together because they are :) as for fit they look much better in real life the photos blow it up sad to say.
Section 8 never thought of that but do look like the government buildings around here.

I use photography as the ultimate critic. The way it looks in photos is usually the way it looks.  Our eyes have a tendency to forgive flaws and "see" things that are either there that should be, or ignore things that shouldn't be there.

Trust the photos...not your eyes.

Cheerio!

Will try to get online later today. On the brick version I paint the material for the walls before cutting so only painting is touch up on the cut edges
and for that I used Anita's acrylic #1104101 Burgundy which I think I got at Hobby Lobby but not sure  but it is made by Testors
which is a Rust-Oleum company
thanks
