Excellent! Is that from a prototype or is it a freelanced structure?

It is freelanced but attempts to follow logical building practices on the Maine Coast during the era up to 1956.  I find most model structures are built to represent drunks not carpenters.  Most builders back then were WAY better than what we have today.  So all these boards cut within a foot or six inches of where they should be cut is a mystery to me.  I think it is John Allen's fault. 

Do you guys have HUGE trouble posting photos?  No matter how small I make them, the site says TOO LARGE.

Yes, it began as a kit.  I''m surprised you do not recognize it.
