This Build Along project featured Gaylord Gill and Randy Bosscher, both experienced S scale model-builders, with “The 1-Kit” by Bar MillsModels. 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 and the first construction session will be on April 17, 2021.  Go to to order the kit in your scale.  Remember, to get a special discount of 25%, 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!
