Has anyone ever built anything from Mount Blue Model Company? http://www.mountbluemodelco.com

I recently found a model that they sell called "Country House". It's very similar to a hunting camp my grandfather frequented. Since it's in the region I plan on basing my layout, I contacted them to see if they could modify the kit some to remove the porch and put solid walls there. I included a few photos. They agreed to it!

I'm eagerly awaiting the kit to see how it turned out.

Has anyone ever built their kits? How are they?

A google search for 'site:railroad-line.com mt. blue model' finds links for both their structure kits and their Maine narrow gauge equipment kits. My thread for their Post-1850 Farmhouse is here:

It went together well and is presently on my layout.

I've built a number of their offerings and have nothing but good things to say about them. Ken is a really nice guy, and it's not surprising at all that he accommodated your request.

I have built several of his HOn30 rolling stock kits. They go together well. I convinced Ken to convert one of his On30 diesel kits to HOn30 and sent him a mechanism to work with. Three months later, I get a package in the mail. In it was his new HOn30 diesel (built around my mechanism) and an additional diesel kit.

I have built a few of Ken's ON30 kits and I really like them, they are simple to build and the parts fit perfectly.
