Building the Arthur Kit

On Friday, my Arthur Kit arrived and Now it is open and I am sitting here trying to figure out how I wish to do this one. Nutti says I should add paperclay. Linda says, I should also electrify this one and I know for sure I want to add a chimney and fireplace. I will not do too much "Kit Bashing" (or kit editing, if the word bash makes your hairs stand up). I am Very excited about this project. I hope to help everyone see that this is a wonderful kit and that it has many possibilities! Join me
