So I picked up this old 'Master Creations' kit a while back.
I always liked this assortment of structures and the backwoods sort of feel,
which fits with my layout concept.
As I have built a couple of other 'Master Creations' kits, I knew they are fraught,
the original batch (no reflection on BTS's line) especially,
and considering this is from '87, some trouble was expected.
Plans were wrong, materials short, directions vague.
Oh boy, like scratchbuilding with gremlins.
I tried to be pretty true to the basic idea,
and nice (but delicate) truck, box car and castings (including 9+ great little peoples).
Of course the box car is missing a lot of strip wood to complete,
but hey originally a great deal at $100 bucks.
