HO Scale Tobacconists Shop Kit

 NOTE: These kits are to be discontinued. When current inventory runs out that will be the last. No new Laser Cut kits will be produced. Only stick-built type kits.

Release 2

The Reed & De Young TOBACCONIST'S SHOP ; - Release 2 - The Tobacconist Shop or possibly a Gun Shop with Post Office also has the owner / proprietor's living quarters on the second floor. This is a very narrow lot building.

Among the castings is a Cigar Store Indian for those that choose to model the Tobacconist Shop as designed.

As this building is tight to the next building there are no windows on this side of the building. The shop has the living quarters directly over and there is a single story storage room on the backside.

NOTE: Window openings are marked on both side subwalls just in case you don't use this building in the same setting as we do. There are also extra laser cut windows to use if you cut these opening free.

The upstairs living quarters at least has windows on the back so a breeze can come through in the Summer heat. The roof of the back storage room also provides a good fire escape just in-case. The stairway upstairs is inside on this building.

NOTE: The front wall, tall rear wall and the short rear wall can be rotated 180 degrees so that the door openings are at the opposite side of the wall face.

There is a covered rear entrance to the building for both occupant entry and the delivery of goods.

This is a very Spartan and basic building typical of small towns with narrow lots and was built most likely around 1900. Two brick chimneys are evident. One for heating the lower commercial area and the other for the living quarters upstairs.

The kit uses vertical board 'n batten siding on the front wall and individual stripwood clapboard siding on all the other walls. Lots for the modeler to do with this small building.

The narrowness of this building is evident in this overhead view.

Great kit. I am 75 yrs old and have somewhat "shaky" hands (not parkinsens).Did not have problems using a #11 blade to "spear" the parts, including the 1x3 lumber. Just had to work slower. Would recommend this kit to anyone (not a beginner). Aleens quick dry worked great. Thank You.

A lot of play value for your money

This kit gives you a lot hours of fun for not much money. It gets a very high IBPPD* score. (Itty-Bitty Pieces Per Dollar) It's a contest winner "out of the box" and can be superdetailed into something super-special. The method of construction makes adding a full interior and lighting straight-forward. I enjoyed it a lot.

As a 64 year old constructing my first board by board structure, I find some parts very small & hard to pick up even with a sharp #11 blade in my knife.
As the construction manual emphasizes staining the siding, there is not much information on proper painting, brush size or paints that can be chosen. I used acrylics.

RSSM NOTE: The designer of the kit is 67 years old. :-)
