From the three story, four room structure to the loading dock area, we have attempted to provide a quality kit with as much care as possible. The building structure can represent any time period from the early 1900’s up to present day. There is a nice collection of resin detail castings giving you an ample supply to show an operating Hardware, Seed and Feed store. The original plan was for the Hap Hazard’s Hardware – Seed & Feed Store and decals for that name are provided but you are free to rename the building to fit your particular needs.
The Hardware Store is an all around viewable model. It has very interesting viewing from all sides and would be best placed either in a diorama or on a layout island. The building is designed to be placed in any setting, hilly or flat, even waterfront if the modeler so chose. It comes complete with all pilings, braces, joists and decking in stripwood. There is a resin cut stone foundation casting for under the front building. The building is constructed of laser cut sub-walls of 1/32" plywood which are then laminated with Northeastern Scale Lumber basswood aged siding for the front store building and two layers of the 1/32" plywood form the back barn building. This, and the method of interlocking floors and 1/32" plywood roof panels give a very sturdy construction that is not prone to warping. Includes a 114 page instruction manual with many detailed photos.
