Finally! It here And it is AMAZING!! The design of this fantastic Craftsman kit much more like the 'original' 1979 version (SEE Image) than the southwestern version Tom Yorke did a number of years ago. But that's almost where it ends. We have used Tom Yorke 'original' hand-carved masters and created totally new castings to replace all that wood and time-consuming construction of the 2nd Floor Bordello, multi-pitched roofs, and both front facades.
And, instead of just 10 or so castings, there are now 27 LabStone high-quality castings, Precision Cut Roofs, Glazing and Signs (the Baba O'Rileys Pool Hall sign is like not other!), 4-Color Laser Signs and window glazing, meticulous instructions and Options, lots of images, and Doctor Ben's How-To #2: The ABCs of Staining Castings booklet. So, for the few drooling in anticipation and the curious wondering about the changes that we have in store, the first change is obvious; an exterior stairway up to "Roxanne's" Bordello. Why you ask? Well, the building has a new owner and rent paying tenants are needed to pay the mortgage. The enclosed interior stairwell that 'use' to allow patrons up to Roxanne's now heads down to the basement where "Max's Barber Shop" now resides.... CLICK HERE for more of the story!
