jlgrove wrote:thanks all for the great comments....Tom, I agree with you on the "oversize" of some of the details, notice how big the porch/overhang brackets look on this one....I am really thinking about taking them off....(what do you think?) but I think most of the kits oversize these items. The additional kit is a companion build by one of my friends who has been afraid to tackle a craftsman kit on his own. But, when $$$ allow, I will build 2 of the same kits at the same time....that way I can make some changes as I go....and there is always someone who will buy it (ebay even), plus I tend to give them away to the gang. Thanks again...Jeff
I wouldn't take them off but I would in the future, as I plan to do. when building a Bar Mills kit try to sand the edges and corners and see if this doesn't remove the "bulk" or "oversize" look of the parts.
