A small Model Power kit - Bob's Hot Dog stand.  The pieces were perfectly moulded and I put them whole thing together in about 45 minutes.  Next is painting and weathering. (I can't decide on the colour scheme at the moment.)  It will be sited at the (new) South Wellfleet station.

  Nice little kit Tim, and done in 45mins.

That's 24 kits per day (you can sleep and eat in the spare 15mins of each hour). You should have plenty of buildings in no time :lol: :lol: :lol:

One of the most impressive things about US outline is the amount and quality of the kits available. UK manufactureres have a long way to go. 

That's a good one, TIm (and well put together). Should be an excellent addition to the layout. Nice job!!

Very true Jeff, alhough the UK market is such a tiny one when compared with the US I guess that could be a reason. Some of the production runs of US locos are eye-watering when compared to UK runs!

Yes, lots of junk. An empty litter bin surrounded by litter, which seems to be typical of summer tourism:???:

With so many kits available in H0 it's easy to overlook the more basic stuff such as Model Power, but I really like that. It'll look great.

That is so American Tim - perfect for your layout - I just love it.:D

Were there instructions with the kit? What glue did you use? When I built my little snack bar I used Plastic Magic which you just paint on to the joint whilst holding the two parts together - very easy and no mess. I just wondered if you used something similar because it looks so well constructed.:D

Les - just the typical "exploded diagram" for instruction, but with not too many parts even I could follow it.  I used regular Testors Liquid Cement.

JohnB - I'm thinking along those lines:D

Another kit, purchased for very little money on eBay, that I have been working on these past four evenings.  Although designed as a rural creamery, this will eventually be the cranberry processing plant - with added tanks and pipes. 



Let me begin by saying that the eBay "blurb" said something like, "Uncertain if all parts are present..." (hence the very low price ;-))  That turned out to be totally wrong, as the kit contained sprues and parts that were either surplus to requirements (three extra windows and glazing) or parts of a completely different kit. :hmm

Althougn branded a Life-Like model it was actually made by Heljan, whose name was stamped on all the larger pieces.  I was immediately disappointed by (a) the quality of the moulding, and (b) the numbering of the pieces in the instructions.  I can't recall having to use the emery board so much in removing surplus plastic, and in many parts of the construction the numbers on the instruction sheet bore no resemblance to the numbers on the pieces or the sprues. :???:

Having said that, once trimmed, sanded and fiddled with the kit was "challenging fun" and looks the part.  I haven't added the guttering and down-pipes yet as I intend to paint them before final assembly.  Neither have I even started painting and weathering.  That, on this and all kits being built, will take plave over a wet and windy weekend sometime.  At the moment I am merely finishing the models to place on the layout - giving me an idea of surrounding scenery and position.

it is more fun when we can't follow the instructions;-) this is a great looking model and gives you loads of potential, either a run down beat up at the end of its day factory or a busy yard.
