FOR SALE: 1:24 Scale Saltbox Colonial

Bethel House is an authentic dual side access saltbox colonial.  Its dimensions are taken from an actual house.  Featuring 12 rooms, it has plenty of space for all your minis.  Every feature is individually hand carved; Bethel House is comprised of over 2,500 individual pieces.  Pictures don't do it justice; it has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

NOTE: Please excuse the fisheye; it's my camera, not my subject.

È impressionante la somiglianza del soggiorno di questa meravigliosa casetta con quella del video-cartone animato preraffaellita di Aron Bothman.....:-o....o forse è davvero la stessa! Se hai voglia, dai un'occhiata nel mio blog:
