Oh, no; surely not.
I suppose it will be $8.
Of course, the post is mysterious thing and maybe they will ask some additional fees when I visit the post office, but I am sure it will not be too large.

I forgot to mention that mine arrived last week. I think Arseny did very well with this one

Thank you, guys.
Glad to hear that the packages arrived well. :thumbup: I hope to see some pictures of the assembled buildings soon! :wink:

BTW, I still have some kits available. If somebody else needs such building, feel free to ask me.
The shipping cost (for 1 kit) is $8 actually, the price of the complete kit (including handrails, etc.) is $30.

Hi Arseny: I am probably half way through construction, side tracked by current events...a trip to Iceland and my younger daughter's impending wedding.....but it has gone together very well so far. Any mistakes made were due to me starting off without fully reading the instruction sheet :o The drawings and instructions are adequate. I haven't exactly figured out how I will use it in its future layout context yet, but that will come. John

Off-hand observation, I would think this kit would be best used as a background structure or to represent a smaller, independent coal mine operator. Yes, they still exist and refer to themselves as "wildcaters" in the anthracite industry. It is really not of the scale size to stand-in for a typical, somewhat "modern" operation. Of course, being wooden, that is tip off that it doesn't represent a modern operation. Smaller wood structures like this were always more prevalent in the bituminous mining areas, at least until the 1970's, there has been much consolidation. So, if you model Appalachia.... Side note, as of a short time ago there was still one operating wooden breaker in the anthracite region here in PA, called the Superior Breaker south of Good Springs....I have been in it during processing operations and the whole building felt like it would shake apart. Its indirectly served by Reading Northern RR. Anywho, I have older HO scaled Suydam coal breaker buildings that would more aptly represent the coal industry. Naturally, Arseny's building could be adapted to other mining activities/locations/periods. Nice kit, and reasonably cheap for coming across an ocean. :thumbup: Recommended.

In the West & Southwestern US... Coal mining is much less common than ore mines...
but this laser-cut structure could easily serve as a basis for either use.
