2018 Winter Build Challenge CCK'S John Shea Co.
« on: December 31, 2017, 10:28:16 AM »
This will be my challenge build, a new kit just released by Jeff of the John Shea Co.. The prototype for this kit was in the center of Methuen Mass. and I found photos on the web taken a few years back and gave them to Jeff at the EXPO. Here's the photos off the web..

I won't get to deep into starting this till Jimmy's kit is done, but I have a few ideas of modifying this kit so I might play around with it while tonight.

I'm going to sit behind Greg and follow along on this build Dan.  I'll try to keep him in line but I have to warn you, it's not easy.  ::)

I will be following along and doing by best to keep Bob and Greg in-line. It looks like a great kit. I can't believe it took Jeff so long to get this kit out if he's had the pictures since the EXPO.  He must be slowing down in his old age.

John, I think I had it 2 weeks after the EXPO, definitely before Thanksgiving. I was going to build it right away until Jimmy started welling up and crying at Marlborough Show about some dying kids wish to see a build thread on the Franklin Electric building so Jimmy could use it for the kit directions... True story.. Not really..
