This is Not a solicitation for service or sale. Just wanting to see if there is a need. If I am breaking any rules, I apologize. This idea came when I realized one of the kits I have is missing pieces, and I have the laser to cut new ones. I have a background in aerospace design, as well as graphics for TV/Film. So the creation of the relatively simple drawings are easy. As title says, is there a need for someone to make/cut missing or replacement parts? Specifically the flat sheet panels, walls, window frames, etc? I have an 80W laser and can easily cut 3MM or thicker wood sheet. Determining if this makes financial sense to develop. Idea is someone can send me a clear scan with a ruler/scale so the piece(s) can be recreated then cut. So, let me have it. Hare brained idea? Genius? Creative? Waste of time? Let me know your thoughts and I might be able to fill a need.... Or not.
I bought a Beacon Hill kit from Craig's list and the seller assured me that all of the parts are there. Since we were snowed in today, I thought I'd check off the sheets to make sure I did indeed have all of the pieces. At first glance, I thought I was in the clear, then I realized that some door trims and stair bannisters were not in the box (they were supposed to be on sheets in widow and door cut outs, so I figure they may have been lost - but for $50 for the kit, cutting some trim wouldn't be a problem) However, I am now missing sheet 14, which (on the schematics) has pieces of the Mansard Roof, two pieces of the tower roof, and various pieces of door trim, fireplace trim, and bay window trim. But, the pieces of Mansard roof, and the tower roof are included in the box as cut into two thin pieces of veneer. So, here's my question: Can anyone tell me if I am indeed missing sheet #14, or are the trims from that page on other sheets. There was an additional sheet of paper that stated to use it (that sheet) to identify the Mansard roof, tower roof, and dormer sections instead of the original schematics. However, it didn't mention the other pieces on the wood sheet #14. Can anyone shed some light on this? I need to know if I need to order a replacement sheet or not. Thanks in advance.
