Hi All
I've been busy working on Raglan Road but there is a small twist to the construction of this kit. Right before Christmas, Artie Fahie, owner of Bar Mills approached me with a proposition regarding the kit. He was seeking an "experienced modeler" to build the kit,... "provide both feed back and suggestions, which will be contained in the BMSM Raglan area of the website once it is up and running". This is a very small sampling of of what will be contained on the website. After a enjoyable hour discussing the project with Artie, I eagerly agreed and accepted the offer. It has been a long time since I built a model specifically for any other purpose then my own enjoyment and use, whether it be a structure kit or a scale model for a client. With a deep sense of pride I jumped right in and went to work. As of now, I have completed three of the four structures; Skinners Salvage, Hubcap Heaven and Klinger's Pharmacy. Currently I am working on Pffeferkorn's Furniture. For now, I just wanted to let the crew know what I was up to, see my progress and appreciate what waits for the builders of this impressive Craftsmen Kit.

Very nice work. If I ever get Tylick's Tool finished, maybe I'll start Raglan's, looks like it will be fun.

Thanks Guys
Appreciate ...
Even an old dog like myself, learned a few new tricks and techniques while building the first three structures. The first was: read the instructions!

Pete -

I like what you have done so far on the structure. A couple of questions:
Is this pretty much "stock" from the kit or is some of what see is your customizing?
Will the buildings be joined together or butted to one another.
Again, looks like your're having fun. Jim

Hi Peter:

All 3 structures are well done. I think you did a particularly excellent job with the Beechnut Tobacco sign ... you have subtly blended it into the wall ... not an easy task!

Will you be setting the buildings into a diorama?

All the structures look as good as when I first saw them. Keep up the good work.

Boy,those buildings look great, Pete. I'm glad I've got that kit on my "someday" shelf. After this winter of buying a few craftsman kits I'm starting to understand how a lot of you guys that have been at this a while have a big backlog of kits.

Very, very nice, Peter! I am about half way through Gritty's, and maybe when I get done I can drag this one off the shelf and get started. Seeing your efforts inspires me to get a move on!

Beautiful structures Peter.
The weathering is very nicely layered and the brickwork is very fine.
The first structure, Hubcap Heaven, looks to be scratchbuilt! Is it a board-by-board? It is very nice indeed.

Peter,
Very well done.
I also think the first structure is really cool.
