Hey Der Folks!

My entry for the 2021 Winter Build Challenge is Blair Line - Blairstown General Store. I will be building this kit has "Aiden's Hardware" dedicated to my Grandson. This my first time building a "Tab and Slot" type kit.

Started work on the build, so for so good. I would have added the pictures to the original post, but was having issues attaching the files.

Ditto that.  I don't recall every building a Blair Line kit so this will be fun to follow along.

Good kits.  I've built three so far.   What I would have liked is the "standard" 1/16 square corner posts.  Dale provides sticky sticks to cover the corner edges.

Still a long ways to go, however, despite a few issues (this my first "Tab n' Slot Kit") I am really enjoying the build.
