Years ago I recognized the superior appearance of craftsman kits, but two factors held me back: skills and budget. Then I overcame the budget -- well, sort of -- and started acquiring a few kits to build at "a later date".
Last year I started small, building Fos Scale Models' Tiny Lou's Grill. It was fun and easier than expected, and no real issues.
This past month I tackled four more kits and, after a less than stellar experience, decided to rank my preference of manufacturers. So, here goes...
|A||Fos Scale Models||
Tiny Lou's Grill
Gardiner's Tack, Feed & Farrier
|A||Bar Mills Models||Saulena's Tavern||
St. Martin's Corner Gas & Groceries
|F||Carolina Craftsman Kits||Raudabush Building||
Still on the shelf:
- Railroad Kits' Reaghan Feed Mill
- Fos Scale Models' Rankins Steak House
- Interaction Hobbies' The Pork Store
Looking forward to trying:
- Mine Mount Models
- ITLA Scale Models
- Jason Jenson Trains
- KC's Workshop
- more Fos Scale Models
- more Bar Mills Models
