Or you can go to the current Saw Mill build by two great modelers: The Dueling Builds - SWSM Twin Mills at Deer Creek at http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=24460

Welcome Dave,

I concur with Philip and KP. I don't have the Twin Mills, but I've built (or am working on) several others with another half dozen waiting in the wings. My best advice is to take your time, study the instructions carefully and read the forum discussions. I think you'll really enjoy building the Twin Mills (and any other Sierra West kit that strikes your fancy).

Hey Dave
I'm currently building the Sierra West Railroad camp and would be happy to help in any way I can. If you look at the construction thread index there are numerous SW kit builds.
You have access to a wealth of knowledge on this forum and many great modelers that are always ready to help.

If you've not built many of these type of kits before, try the Tool Shed by Sierra West. I have a thread on the "other" forum about it. http://kitforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1010&hilit=+tool+shed

I also built the Duluth Company http://kitforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1626&hilit=+duluth

These builds were really fun and I think Brett's kits are great.

Dave,
If you want to remain here on Railroad-Line here is a link to a thread with almost all the construction threads ever posted.

Go to the letter S and you will see many different construction threads listed for Sierra West kits.

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=12859

Just a little bit of history, Railroad-Line really started to grow in the initial stages of the forum when some of us started with a construction thread for Foss' Landing.
As they say once that thread took off the rest is history.
