MY APOLOGIES

I need to step back for the time being as I am care taking my 97 yo father solo.
Though we made it through the pandemic and are both vaccinated I need to focus on his needs.

LIMITED AVAILABILITY

For the time being I'm pulling back the Evening Express kits.
There's been a rush on SwitchMaster and I'm down to nil. It's doubtful that I will reorder until this fall (2021). Write to reserve which may steer that sooner.
Other groups may follow. For now it's things here and there that may not be restocked.
And without warning or notice I may not be able to ship this week or the next.

SORRY - NO RUSH ORDERS!

Thank-you for your kind understanding. We'll see how it goes.
Please stay safe and sane by modeling!

NOTICE - END of JUNE - FAMILY RETREAT - NOTICE

Looks like I won't be able to do much until after the 4th with family visiting...
celebrating Dad's 97th and other business. So expect additional delays.

PayPal payments still works but you cannot contact me with it. cc.crow@frontier.com has been problematic, too.
But this one works.

BUILDERS IN SCALE


Fine Craft Kits and More!

    In 1983, our founder Jim Haggard released Builders In Scale's first limited run HO scale structure kit, Weiry & Sons, and nine others after. Featuring plaster cast brick and stonework, laser-cut wood, etched brass parts, and plenty of our fantastic white metal details, we plan to release many more.

    In 2002, Jim retired with the intention of earning a college degree and teaching. Long time friend and Hydrocal kit manufacturer, C. C. Crow, stepped in and moved the business to Washington state, just north of Seattle, where he continues Builders In Scale's tradition of producing high-quality craft kits, parts, materials and supplies. The line has been expaneded in many areas, adding new sizes and new colors, nwe detail patterns, whole new branches of laser-work and exciting new kits. Always with more in the works.

    Our new LaserWood kits fall into the "craftsman" range of modeling, featuring incredible details in laser-scribed planking with thousands of nailheads matching the board-by-board framing. Unique subjects combined with our white metal details and our other fine materials insure enjoyment.

    We also continue to expand on a full line of Evening Express Series kits which, while smaller in scope than our limited run kits, feature many of the same great components. All at reasonable prices.

630 Elm Street

Our Evening Express Kit No. 606 - 630 Elm Street

    Our ever expanding LaserWood product line includes a full matrix of stair stringers of all slopes and sizes, stair treads, generic wood planking for loading docks, platforms and walkways as well as siding, roofing, fencing... And yes, we do many of these in N-scale. See details below.

More Than Just Kits -

    For the scratch builder we offer a wide range of detailing parts, building materials, construction stocks, scale figures, and general modeling supplies, serving N, HO, S and O scales, even a few for G-scale.

    Among our stocks of roofing and siding materials are tar paper, slate shingles and shakes, TrueWood laser-cut strip shingles, and our Victorian shingles, with real metal Ribbed Seam and Corrgation Strips, in various widths and scale.

    Our scratch building parts including miniature brass chain, now in five standard sizes plus one ornate, our incredible laser-cut Lace Curtains, Venitian Blinds, stair stringers in three slopes, and for scenery we have Snow!, perfect for modeling the high-country, and Kelp/Seaweed, just right for modeling shorelines, and much much more.

    Our HO scale detailing kits and sets include Chain Link Fence, Snow Fence and other small models, ectched brass details, and an assortment of white metal details grouped in useful sets.

    For O scale we have many great white metal detail parts to choose from plus two dozen scale figures and animals.

    For all modelers we offer SwitchMaster slow-motion and virtually silent stall-type switch machines and accessories.

    Our finishing products include weathering chalks, brick mortar mix, and our famous often copied SilverWood stain, now with several additional colors.

    You'll find all of these and more within our web site.


AT A RETAIL SHOP - NEAR YOU

    We work out of our family home and do not have room nor the staff for a retail shop. Please visit and order on line, or visit your local retailer. If they do not carry our line urge them to do so. We would be happy to hear from them.



GENUINE BUILDERS IN SCALE DETAIL PARTS!

YOU CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE

HO scale Detailing Sets.

    Our line includes over 500 original white metal detail parts that were created in our shop. Most were done by our founder, Jim Haggard, our figures by Ray Lantz, and now others are being created by C. C. Crow and friends. This is what makes our kits special. We actually made the original patterns. We didn't magically find them in a scrap box. We put them there!


SO - WHAT'S NEW?

    C. C. Crow got this crazy idea about doing some narrow gauge roundhouse kits. Like Durango in O-scale. It's four feet by four feet! Takes a month to do just one kit. And now he's doing Ridgway in HO, and plans to do Durango in HO too. That, along with care taking his 95 year old father, there's not much time left in the day. But there are many new items scattered here and there. And new kits in the works, but the focus is on roundhouses and yes they are taking forever. Meanwhile, here's the sort of new stuff.

COLORADO MINING KITS

Our new Ore Bin kit and Ore Trestle.

ORE BIN and TRESTLE

    We've added several kits to the Evening Express line featuring Colorado mining. The Ore Bin and The Mine Headframe as seen at the top of this page. These go along with our existing Mine Hoist and Ore Skip kit and Double Boiler kit. We've also added a light-duty Ore Trestle.

Click  EVENING EXPRESS MINE KITS   for more information.



LASERWOOD KITS!

J & J Pyrite Mine     Warehouse No.3
LASERWOOD KITS

    We have several new LaserWood kits under development. These kits feature incredible detail seldom found in laser kits. Not only have we cut the outlines of the walls but we've laser-scribed the planks and added nailhead detail, the likes you'd only find on award-winning contest models, you know the kind, where the guy spent all winter using a sewing needle to emboss the tiny nail holes just so. Well, we thought we should have that kind of detail on our new LaserWood kits. One could argue it's better than scratch-built! Add a nice handful of our white metal details- and these are outstanding.

    These kits include a couple of lineside wooden warehouses, an annex for them, one and two-stall wooden enginehouses, a car shop, a small wooden church, and The J & J Pyrite Mine and several more to come.

    Many are now available with the others to follow. We will post more detailed information as they are released.

LIMITED RUN HO SCALE KIT

National Belle Mine - original model built in 1983.

THE NATIONAL BELLE MINE

    The National Belle Mine was to be our next Limited Edition kit in HO scale.
    This complex of structuers will be a prominent feature on your pike. The upper mine (original concept model shown above) consists of a headframe, boiler house, compressor house and hoist house which can be placed together, moved around or even be split apart and spread out in different locations on your layout.
    We're not through though, there's the lower section, featuring covered ore bins and an exposed enterance so you can show off a string of ore cars glimmering with ore said to be worth $14,000* per ton!

Click  LIMITED EDITION KITS   for more information.

* Value of ore may be slightly exagerated.

    Our intention was to bring this out as our first Limited Edition kit under C. C. Crow however it stalled for various reasons. Most was the low interest when we showed it at the Santa Clara narrow gauge convention. Then other things came up like helping C. C. Crow with his 1/4" Durango roundhouse kit!

    Do note the the J&J Pirite Mine, our kit no. 622 is actually based on a later version of the National Belle. And there's always the probability of bring out the lower section as another Evening Express / LaserWood kit if not the whole thing. Our interest remains high for the area around Red Mountain, Colorado.



C. C. CROW KITS

NP HOTEL, EASTON, in HO scale!

C. C. Crow's NP HOTEL, EASTON - click on photo for details

    We are helping C. C. Crow with some of his kits adding laser-work and white metal details. They don't get any better than this! The Northern Pacific Hotel at Easton would make a great resting place for your busy crews. You could almost call it Builders In Scale's kit No. 11.

AND WE ALSO DO O-SCALE!

C. C. Crow's D&RGW DURANGO ROUNDHOUSE in On3 - click on photo for details

    We are also helping C. C. Crow with his new On3 kit of
The Denver & Rio Grande Western DURANGO Roundhouse.

    Only three and some years in the works this is an incredible model featuring brick detail inside and out, laser-cut roofs, engine doors and details. Even if you don't model Colorado narrow gauge, 1/4-inch, or whatever, you'll appreciate the insight. Do take a look-see. We are also doing Gunnison which will appear as a construction series by our fellow modeler and friend Glenn Farley.

    And if we are lucky we'll see this model in HO scale too. Not just part of it like some are offering, but all ten stalls with as accurate details as you can research.


PLUS ALL SORTS OF STUFF

    So you can see we are pretty busy! We are also constantly developing, improving and adding various detail parts, scatch-building components, laser parts and so on.
