I was pleasantly surprised to find that the US Postal Service had actually delivered my kit to my abode without any side trips. Brett sent it out on 9/28 and it got here on 10/1. Amazing. I will echo Karls remarks on the details....they are phenomenal to say the very least. Sadly...I will only have tonight to work on some items before a little road trip south. I promise this build will have photos of my progress....I had already stated that I had in mind some minor changes in the kit....most you will need to really look for.....I can't and won't deviate from Brett's great design. This as all my kits are destined for my layout that is a logging road with a waterfront, a small coal mine, and supporting structures.
What I intend to do with this kit, is to combine it with other SW structures and details to make a lineside maintenance and supply facility. You will recognize the kits once they start to appear...but I fully plan on finishing kit #315
first and foremost. It will all make perfect sense once I reveal the following builds...I build my kits on 1" foam, and then fit them in like puzzle pieces on top of the 2" foam base sections reinforced with wood strips ( I'll post a photo eventually) I run my loco's on Dead Rail so no wiring issues. I plan on most all structures to have lighting (LED) also battery operated, and I try to detail most of the interiors.
So all that being said...I'm off to the shop to grain and stain....following Brett's techniques....Look for photos in about a week or so....
