BUILDERS IN SCALE


Fine Craft Kits and More!

    We released our first HO scale limited run kit, Weiry & Sons, in 1983, and nine more since. And we plan to release many more of these exciting kits featuring plaster cast brick and stonework, laser-cut wood, etched brass parts, and of course plenty of our famous white metal details.

    We also offer 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.

    We are also developing new kits and products. You will find many addtions to our existing parts and well as completely new branches. A big one is our LaserWood product line which includes stair stringers of all slopes and sizes, stair treads, generic wood planking for loading docks, platforms and walkways as well as siding, roofing, fencing. We are currently working on several new kits using these materials that will amaze you. See details below.

More Than Just Kits -

    For the scratch builder we offer a whole range of detailing parts, building materials, construction stocks, scale figures, and general supplies, serving N, HO, S and O scales, with even a couple of pieces for G.

    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, both in various widths and scale.

    Our scratch building parts including miniature brass chain, now in three 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 40 white metal detail parts to choose from plus two dozen scale figures and animals.

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

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

BUILDERS IN SCALE has moved to Mukilteo, Washington!

    On September 1st, 2002, Jim Haggard retired from Builders In Scale to pursue other activities. Long time friend and model kit manufacturer,
C. C. Crow, has 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 polished craft kits and accessories. The line has been expaneded in many areas, adding new sizes and colors, with whole new branches of laser-work and exciting new kits.


PLEASE NOTE

    We work out of the basement of our family home and do not have room for a retail shop. Please 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.

WE KNOW THEY ARE GOOD-
BUT PLEASE DON'T PIRATE OUR PARTS

our pirate flag.

    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!

    Unfortunately, others in the hobby, some well know names, have taken the liberty of pirating parts from Builders In Scale, Fine Scale Miniatures, and others. Plain and simple THAT IS STEALING and so so WRONG. Good pattern builders are few and far between and should be rewarded for their efforts. Pirates should be shun!

    When you buy genuine parts from us you will see the difference. We took the time to create them. And we take great care to reproduce them. Ours are crisp and clean. Pirates don't really care about that stuff. All they want is your money and will do as little as possible to get it. Legitimate pattern builders want your smile and we will do all we can to get it.

    Here, we'll even show you how to make your own patterns!

SO - WHAT'S NEW?

COLORADO MINING KITS

Our new Ore Tipple kit and Ore Trestle.

ORE BIN and TRESTLE

    We've added several new 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.

!NEW LASERWOOD KITS!

J & J Pyrite Mine     Warehouse No.3
NEW 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 way over the top.

    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.

OUR NEXT LIMITED RUN HO SCALE KIT

National Belle Mine - original model built in 1983.

THE NATIONAL BELLE MINE

    The National Belle Mine as our next Limited Edition kit in HO scale.
We wish this wasn't taking so long- We'll see if we can get it back on track as soon as we are done with helping C. C. Crow with his 1/4" Durango roundhouse kit!
    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.

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.
