Has anyone kitbashed Walthers Mountain Lumber Company sawmill?

G'day gents!

I'm researching industries for the club's new layout. One that I am considering is Walthers Mountain Lumber Company sawmill. Unfortunately the kit as shown in the catalogue is a bit too big for the space we have available, and it is 'backwards' in terms of how it would best fit on the layout. I'm quite willing to take a chainsaw to the kit but before I do that I'm wondering if anybody has kitbashed this kit, maybe to make it smaller or to re-arrange things like where the logs are fed into the mill? Please share your ideas.

Thanks,

Dave

You may have noticed the button to download the instruction sheet on the lower right side of the webpage. That's a good source of "what-if" information, combined with the footprint info right below it.

Most of Walthers' structure kits have the instructions available, which makes it much easier to determine if the kit is a candidate for the project you have in mind.

Hi Eric:

Yes, I am aware of the instruction sheets and the footprint diagrams. In fact I have the footprints for about 15 different possible buildings on my desk as we speak.

Thanks

Dave
