  1. I started my Beacon Hill last night, and sheet #2, (the second floor) is very obviously from a different house. Not even close to being right.
  2. Thanks for the replies, I am getting ready to start on my wife's Beacon Hill, as practice for the Garfield we have waiting. I am going to spend alot of time and money on these kits and want to make sure they turn out well. I really wanted to hear from some people who had built these houses and how they've held up. Nice Beacon Hill by the way shalean, I've looked at it before. I was concerned about the extra weight, not to mention the fact that the house would be smaller if it was built out of thicker material.
  3. I've talked to several people locally, and everyone is telling me that Greenleaf houses could really benefit from thicker walls. Has anyone found this to be true? Has anyone here done this? Someone suggested gluing 1/4" plywood to the kit pieces to make 3/8" wood, is this necessary? These houses I have are being built for display only, not for a child to play with.
  4. There is both a 65 Shelby GT350 kit and a 65 Mustang 2+2 GT kit in 1/12 scale, these were made by Revell in the early eighties. They have working suspension, roll up windows (that actually work by turning the crank), fold forward seats, opening doors, hood and trunk, and steering that turns by the steering wheel. They turn up on ebay every once in a while, but are very expensive. I have one of the Shelbys which I restored a few years ago, I originally built it when I was nine and it was a mess.
  5. Which kit are you building? The only ones I know of in that scale are the 57 Chevy, 67 Corvette, and 69 Camaro.
  6. My Beacon Hill was free :lol: ! Of course, I still haven't heard back if they'd like to pick it up since they shipped it by accident. The Garfield would have been $170 shipped to my door today at Joann's though .
  7. Wrap the house in plastic before using the peanuts, that way you won't have to clean that mess out of the house.
  8. This will be the first, and I'm only playing contractor on it, lol. She's picking out flooring and all of the colors and furnishings. I'm really looking forward to it.
  9. Sounds like we are in the same boat, I just bought my wife a Garfield for Christmas too. Construction commences this weekend.
  10. Lol, we're moving in about four years, so I don't want it stuck here.
  11. Thanks, I've been model building for years (although it has been plastic model cars, mostly 1/24 & 1/25 scale). This will be a nice change of pace.
  12. I'm going to call the company and see if they want the Beacon Hill sent back, I didn't pay for it and was very surprised to see two boxes on the doorstep. debbie4159, I think we've discovered that the Garfield isn't going to fit through our doorways either, so I don't know what we are going to do. Someone told me it was 29", but the instructions say 30 1/2", which is just a shade too wide. I'm sure I'll be talking to alot of you and asking plenty of questions, this thing looks a little daunting.
  13. Hello all, I just bought my first dollhouse for my wife for Christmas - the Greenleaf Garfield kit. When it arrived today, I was surprised to find that the place I ordered it from also sent a Beacon Hill kit that I wasn't billed for - I think they shipped the wrong item, then quickly realized it and sent the proper one. Anyway, this looks like a nice site and I'm sure it will be very helpful in the near future.
