Kruiswyk Machinery (formerly Canavan's Machine Tool) - A Fos Scale Limited Structure Kit Build
So, I was able to get this kit done, in a little under three weeks, after working on it a few hours a night, 2-3 nights a week.  It is certainly not a difficult kit, if you've done at least one or two  'craftsman style' kits and fun to build.  For this one,...
