“The 1 Kit” Build Along/Kit bash
with Gaylord Gill and Randy Bosscher
This Build Along project featured Gaylord Gill and Randy Bosscher, both experienced S scale model-builders, with “The 1-Kit” by Bar Mills Scale Model Works. The kit is available in N/HO/S/O scales, and it is unique in that modelers design their own structure projects. While The 1-Kit provides a starting point, this is essentially scratch-building. The initial introduction of the project will be on February 27, 2021 and the first construction session will be on April 17, 2021. Go to barmillsmodels.com/product/the-1-kit-n-ho-s-o/ to order the kit in your scale. Remember, to get a special discount of 25% until May 17, 2021, use the discount code NTM1KIT. Hope you BUILD ALONG with Gaylord and Randy because this may become the first model you can say you scratch-built!
Gaylord and Randy discuss how to research a building to replicate. How to formulate a plan to build it. What tools to use during the process. Different techniques to hold the walls and roof together. How to add lighting, paint and details. Various ways to apply the roof and roofing materials. By watching the various segments listed below will provide you with a vast pool of information and how too.
We hope you enjoy the series and we would love to see what you build. Make sure you watch the show on May 29, 2021 to see what other modelers have done and to show off YOUR build.
