Majestic Hardware and Feed, Galilee

Majestic Hardware and Feed, Galilee [built April 2009]. This is close to a straight-from-the-box Bar Mills kit, my only changes being that I (1) added a scratch-built loading dock, (2) transferred the over-hanging roof on the left to its curent position above the dock, (3) enclosed the left-side covered drive-through, and (4) added some wonderful Rusty Rail resin detail castings to the metal ones that came with the kit.

This is the first time I've built a kit with either laser-cut parts or peel-and-stick window parts. The Bar Mills 8-part main windows impressed me enormously: I could not believe how tiny and perfect they made the mullions! I'm less impressed with the peel-and-stick roofng and parts, since I doubt they'll stick very long without additional glue (something the instructions mention, I should add). I had to use yellow furniture glue to hold down the roof edges and some of the window frames.

In September 2016 the Majestic Hardware and Feed moved to Clinton, South Carolina. — GPL.
