Excellent!  Except why is the Broad Street Bank when the sign says First National Bank?  Or is this the Broad Street Branch of the First National Bank?  Regardless, when are you going to make these in N-scale, as well as hire me for test-building and product photography (I'll work cheap, trade buildings for photos)? ;-)

Many banks across the country began as First National Banks. Most have gone on to become something else (e.g. Broad Street Bank), but some retain the original name for historical touch, I suppose. The kit comes with a sign overlay that says Broad Street Bank. And of course you can name it anything else you want.

Regardless, when are you going to make these in N-scale...

At some point, when we can handle double or more the production capacity, we'll start bringing these to N scale. But as it is we are quite close to production capacity right now, so that may yet be a ways off.

Good save, and I look forward to the N-scale versions.  Meanwhile, these are just excellent.  :)

David -

This is definitely a kit that I eagerly await in N Scale.  That looks awesome.

I had a chance to hit Klein's on Saturday and I saw this kit hanging on their pegboard among some other items.   It looks like a really nice kit, though I couldn't see the castings very well through the packaging (rats!).

But it was not at all obvious from the labeling that this was a Z scale structure kit (the words 'Kit Z-02' are a bit too subtle, I think).  While I doubt you expect too many sales from walk-ins to an LHS, it would seem helpful to have the words 'Z Scale Structure Kit' or some such printed prominently on the packaging somewhere.  Just my 2 cents.
