Duluth Company is crafted in the tradition of our Signature Series craftsmen kits since we utilize the same materials and techniques. However, we use our lasers as a modeling aide, not a substitute for sound construction methods and materials. Innovative laser cut templates are provided that make cutting difficult components like rafters a breeze. As with all SierraWest kits, detail and clutter is important on all sides of the diorama! Study the photographs and enjoy all that attention given to creating a scene full of character. At only 12 x 7 inches, there is lots to take in. The main walls are laser cut, random planked clapboard siding. The loading docks are created with stripwood decking over laser cut frames. The small open tool shed is individual boards over a laser cut 4 x 4 frame. Duluth Company is the perfect mix of materials and techniques.
CKU (craftsmen kit university) projects like Duluth are technique driven kits that are great fun and much faster to build than our larger signature series kits. We study the following CKU subjects while constructing Duluth Company: Working with and detailing clapboard walls including painting, weathering, and finishing off with doors, windows, awnings, and vents. Adding flashing, signage, tarpaper roofing, shingles, and full rafter details. The basics of board on board modeling along with staining and weathering stripwood. Painting, weathering, and detailing resin and metal castings. Scenery basics and creating a diorama.
