UPDATED DISCLAIMER NO, this is "NOT" a paid endorsement for Basher and Sons. But when someone supports "Z" with low prices and great quality, I do my part to support them with a solid and honest review. HOWEVER, I have also started conversing with Mike Basher on a more regular basis and I am currently working on a project with him. On that note though, this review and build will be my personal opinion and assessment, and is in no way influenced by Mike Basher. ————————————————— This SAWTOOTH WAREHOUSE kit came out a couple of months ago, and I picked one up right away when I saw it listed on EBay. It was a surprise release by Basher and Sons, and at a respectable price of $39.95, plus FREE shipping! This is the highest priced kit in their lineup of buildings thus far, but it’s understandable due to the sheer number of brick lines that must be cut for this kit. And although not high in part count, this a rather complex kit. As with all Basher and Sons kits, there are no step-by-step instructions. Rather some word instructions are provided and a few pictures to go by. There is a degree of intuition required on the part of the builder. No step-by-step instructions for the novice builder may be a drawback, but in my opinion if it keeps the cost down on the kit, I’m all for it. The brick walls and various other components are cut in brown laser board. I will demonstrate that this is a plus later when the color is applied to the brick walls. As with all Basher kits, the window and door trim pieces are excellent. The window lattices are cut with impeccable precision and yet maintain a good degree of rigidity. Interestingly enough the color choice of this light tan material also gives the appearance of faded and weathered white paint when mounted against a brick wall. I do not paint any of these window or door trim components unless I am changing them to Brown or something of that nature. Otherwise they have a great weathered look to them just as they are. And as a sidenote, applying any type of paint to these finely cut pieces will skew the quality of them. I suggest simply leaving them as is in order to highlight their intricacy. The window glazing and roofing material are always of great quality as well. Most Basher kits provide a black construction paper material for the roofing. What one can or does with that is up to them. While the outer appearance and architectural trim of this building is fantastic, in my opinion something seems to be missing such as an attached office, or the like. On that note I surfed the web looking for sawtooth warehouses in the United States during the 1940s-1960s. The picture pickings are pretty slim. Granted this design seems to be predominately in the UK, and only partially in the United States. However I did find this pic which offers a degree of inspiration. Not sure if it’s of a US based building or a UK-based, but needless to say it it has a lot of elements that I want to bring into this building. I have several other ideas that I want to add to this kit and will demonstrate those as I continue the build process. Stay tuned and I will post additional pics and opinions of this kit.
