Wild West – Slim’s Shoe Shop

This was my second Wild West Models kit. It goes together very easily, I spent maybe 4-5 hours on it to complete it. This is also a very small model that could fit easily on almost any O Scale layout. It also comes with several signs that I have not used yet and an optional front porch roof. You can also reverse the left and right walls to put the window on the other side of the building.

The roof can be left removable, which I did, to make interior detailing easy.

The only modification I made was to put 4×6 and 2×6 stringers under the floor/decks to raise it. I also trimmed off the porch extensions for the porch roof as I decided to not use it.
