Kits & Kit Parts

Many of these kits are from the 90's. Some have all the materials, while others have only the wood or specialty parts. Some have patterns, others do not. A few items have a slightly musty smell. We have found that leaving the material out in the fresh air or sun (shade if dyed materials) helps the smell to dissapate. These kits are sold: AS IS.
