It’s true that the “Shack Pack” is available in N-HO-O scales (all at your local retailer or direct), but what makes us tout the kit is the fact that each of the three structures included in it take a different building approach. One shack is “tar-paper”, another clapboard, another scribed siding. For the money spent you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal (or more useful structures !). So for all of you, beginners (and not-so-beginners) we can only suggest to you that this kit will fit anywhere, serve most any purpose, and give you some practice with different techniques & ideas. As simple as it is, it continues to be one of our favorites !
