Yes, this kit is in production and yes, folks are purchasing it & (hopefully) building it. This is too beautiful of a kit to leave it in the box! The accompanying images showing the Ramshackle construction 'in-progress' is the "Practice" Pilot Model. We I am done with this practice model I will begin constructing the 'real' Pilot Model for this kit. Most likely, the practice pilot will end up here for sale. This rare *illusive* Ramshackle Engine Shed kit will accommodate HOn2-1/2 / HOn30/HOn3 engines with a maximum length of 31'-10". The Interior footprint of this facility measures 1.425"W x 1.545"T x 4.400"L
