Ladies, and Gentlemen, Boys, and Girls.......you are about to witness a spectacle rarely seen.......the building of the "BEAST" Hat factory....wood arrived yesterday from Northeastern, and will have pics up of most of the wall sections cut out. I am working on a punch for the windows, so that may take a week to get together.......I have come to the conclusion that I will probably have to be committed if I try to cut out over 204 windows......
Till tomorrow all.........

Hey All.....Nothing too exciting today, got some of the basic walls cut out. I did not calculate correct, and I am 1 clapboard section short, have to wait for Northeastern to open back up after the New Year. I did get a little truck built for the display though. This was out of an old Master Creations kit....This thing was a nightmare to build...not like the easy Jordan kits. Came together okay, painting the lettering on scale 2x4 is always fun. Well that's it for today.
Happy Holidays to all......

Darryl,
 Thanks for the comment.....If someone does buy the molds, than the hundreds of dollars I spent hoarding Jordan kits will be in vain....Oh! Well! at least I have them if I need them....

Hi all...so here are the outer shed walls all finished... The tubs you see are from what I have gathered as some sort of solution that they would dip the rabbit skins in to remove the hair....I am also working on drying racks, that have simulated rabbit skins hanging on them. Only 999 windows to go.........Thanks for taking a look....
