the Rustic Stone & Frame Factory Kit #9105—UPDATE! New Drawings...
Currently, a "work in progress", this 1978 Thomas A. Yorke Ent kit (Now Scale Model Masterpieces) is receiving whole new (and some original) update. We have the Main Building Drawings 95% complete and the Instruction Booklet updated. For the bunch of you who have recently purchased this kit and would like the "Updated" Instruction Booklet", simply post a message in the Comment Section of your next website order to include the updated booklet and we'll include it with your purchases. We recommend waiting a few weeks or so before making this request in that there are going to be some additional updates.
HO Scale Update: We decided to offer this same version in HO which will be available in a couple of weeks. Originally, we had created a more sophisticated version and we're shelving that design until some future time.
For the record, most everything you see in the images as well as quite a bit of other stuff that you don't see as this update progresses. Folks see images and drawings from other kit manufacturers with details and items that they are expecting with the kit, and the long story short it doesn't and the customer is disappointed. For us it's WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) unless duly noted in the drawings & images.
Be sure to keep checking back at our website Blog for the updates—we've got some great ideas planned!
NOTE: All of the casting for this model are made from "original" Thomas A. Yorke molds/masters and cast in Labstone/Dental (Buff) for much more superior detail than casting made of Hydrocal© can produce.
The windows, doors, and some other details are Grandt Line product molded plastic. Doctor Ben's Roofing material is provided as well as the instruction for its application. Each kit has updated instructions are to make construction more applicable to changes of materials and modeling techniques.
This brand new update includes detailed construction drawings (SEE adjacent THUMBNAILS), scale lumber, Precision Cut template & content sheets, barrels and boxes, outhouse/privy (pictured), weathering instructions, color photos, instruction booklet, and much more.
The original 1978 #O-9105 kit was originally produced in the produced by Thomas A Yorke and although there have been some variations, this craftsman kit includes the best aspects of previous versions..
And yes, Doctor Ben's Weathering would look good on the roof. At right is the Front Elevation view of this kit. Booklet Instruction include is a color photographs!
