If this is the official "begging and pleading" thread, then I want the Beaumont in 1/2" scale. If not the whole house, then at least those wing additions; I think they'd go well with the Willow I bought last year.

I don't have anything to request right now, because then I might have to buy it, and I am full for now... :) No more kits or houses for me for a while.

Great idea though Kat about the additions on the Willow.

Half scale Glencroft you say? Just take my money!

Seriously though, if they have all the plans for a kit in 1/12, would it that difficult to translate a half scale kit? I assume it's all done on a computer program, and while time consuming the equations should be easy enough. I suppose the real question is how popular is half scale and would it be worth the time for those they do actually sell.

Here's my thought. Custom orders for existing kits and/or retired artply

Garfield and Beacon Hill! I would snatch them up in a heartbeat. I bet half scale would gain popularity if more of these large, unique and detailed houses were available.

I didn't know until I read this and checked it out that the Fairfield was 1/2". I LOVE this kit. I have mentioned many times on the Spring Fling forum how much I love 1/2" and don't get much of a response. I'd love to see Spring Fling in 1/2 scale. Maybe if they'd just offer one of these other kits in 1/2 scale lazer cut for a contest they'd see there's a Fan base for the smaller scale.

For the past couple of SFs the kit has been available in 1:48 for the winners. If I didn't already have so mini kits and nowhere to build yet, I'd LOVE a 1:24 Beaumont!

Morgan, have you checked out the Greenleaf store? There are several laser cut half scale kits . There are also half scale furniture kits.

I really have no preference for laser cut over die cut.

For my begging, what about the Glencroft in laser-cut? :D

I have no lesions on my soul so I will live my life without fear.

Like everyone else, I think having a Glencroft in 1/24th laser cut would be a dream come true. If you add the Willowcrest and the Lily to that list, I'd be much poorer but very happy.

But I really want those wing additions, lots of potential there. Please, please, please! :bear:

I agree, I would love a Glencroft and Willowcrest in 1/24th scale laser cut. I have both kits now, but may never build them as I don't have the space.

Thats funny, I also have both of those kits and no space. Im warming up to half scale and I too think the Glencroft would be irresistable in 1:24.

Most definitely Paula :) I've been wanting a Greenleaf 1/2 scale forever. I just hadn't figured out the Fairfield was 1/2 scale and I already have a very specific project in mind for that one.

Over the last 18 months I've seen alot that shows 1" is losing popularity and 1/2" is gaining. I'm really curious if that is true. How do we figure out how many of us are serious about 1/2 scale? Maybe if we can show there really are enough we could get some of these other kits in the line up for smaller scale production.

Now that I've successfully made furniture and dolls in 1:24 I'm comfy with it.
