    My wife, maybe 15 years ago got me to take her to a Doll Show in Timonium MD, and lo-and-behold there was a major Model Train Show going on at the same time! I was a happy camper! She ended up buying me a HO scale structure kit. I will attach a jpg of my completed structure that I called "Herling's Brewery". After I finished it, I threw out the box and all the many sheets of instructions that came with this kit and cannot remember what company originally created it!

    I researched it a little and am pretty sure it's not a FSM. I did break the first base early on and had to contact the creator of the kit for a replacement base which he kindly sent me, and I kind of remember he was located somewhere in Ohio or Indiana.

    Does this look familiar to anyone?

    It looks very familiar to me and I know I've seen something similar recently. Let me drudge through my favorites list and see if I can't spark a memory.

    I've searched my favorits and can not seem to find a link. If memory serves, I was searching for a specific structure and was crusing through the manufacturers sites when I came across these. Phenomenal models...
    Still looking....
    This one looks similar but not the same...

    How about BTS (Better Than Scale)? Builders in Scale?

    Doesn't ring a bell. It's not BTS or BIS.
    It's a mystery. I didn't have room to save the box and/or the lenghty instructions that came with the kit and I'm still kicking myself for tossing it all in the garbage after i completed the Brewery!!

    How about two more "B"s" - I was glancing through some back issues of MR tonight...

    Maybe Branchline or Blair Line? Both offer laser cut structures...

    It's Micro-Scale Models Bower's Brewery.

    It was a limited-run kit, and a very nice one, too!
