Matchbox Fire Station - an attempt at a rehab

I picked up a Matchbox Fire Station some time back off of eBay. Wasn't complete, which I knew, but it had been "repaired" and then painted, which was not evident from the pictures. It was sold "as is" and the price wasn't too bad, even for the condition, so I kept it without complaint. The paint was rubbing off, revealing stains from the glue, so I decided to repaint it myself. Couldn't figure a good way to get the stickers off without damaging them, so just painted around them. Here are the before pictures:

Not museum quality work by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm happy with the results and it is certainly more presentable than before.
