Hi everyone,
I've just discovered this company which is based in the UK but makes US themed craftsman kit models for On30! Result!
I'm wondering if anyone here has ever ordered anything from them? The kits look really nice, and for O scale they are quite reasonably priced.
The ones I went for were the lineside hut, furniture kit and then this beast:





I am thinking of using this on my in-progress urban switching layout - probably without the loading dock - as a lumber merchant, the building as an office with the lumber storage racks underneath it.
According to the site, the kits are made to order, so there's a week lead time on point of ordering to point of shipping, but I can wait. :)
Next question - can anyone suggest any detail parts for the inside of the building that might be useful? :)

Well produced and cleanly cut.

'Evening Dan,  I bought their sliding warehouse door & sash window packs. Well formed, not too thick, good service but I cannot figure out how the sash windows are meant to go together. The "instructions" are as clear as vintage cloudy cider. Or maybe I'm just very thick ?? Definitely worth the ┬ús.

Regards,    Michael

Hi Michael,

I was looking at those sash windows but decided against ordering some in my first order.

I'll certainly come back to them later though. :)

Those are some great looking kits, but then the builder is the reason the kits look so great! Carry on sirs, great workmanship.

I got a notification the other day that mine had shipped. Hopefully they'll be here soon. :)
