Build Challenge 2018 #2 - Bar Mills Sweaty Betty's
« on: December 31, 2017, 05:44:37 PM »
I have a need for a small back road restaurant for the railroad workers.

I'm going to build Bar Mills Sweaty Betty's. I've never build a Bar Mills kit so I thought I'd use this opportunity to check Bar Mills off my list of kits I've built of different manufacturers.

Here is the obligatory start photos.

Hi Tom,, I built this one a few years ago. It is featured on my "Mill Falls" layout. It's a nice kit - enjoy!

I'll be following along as well.  I wasn't aware that you've never built a Bar Mills kit.  I've tackled a few over the past several years and I've always been happy with the end result.   :D

Thanks, I think I remember seeing the diner in some of your photos. You did a great job on yours.
