The House of Miniatures kits were popular with kit-bashers from the time X-Acto introduced them. Almost at the same time THoM kits appeared, a wonderful magazine named The Scale Cabinetmaker (TSC) debuted. In its second issue, January 1977, X-Acto began advertising The House of Miniatures inside the back cover. By the third issue of the magazine, THoM kits began appearing in articles.
Every time that I build a The House of Miniatures™ furniture kit I think about the first time I opened one of these boxes. And I think about the many experiences I’ve had building THoM kits. This article is not about the How or the Why, but about enjoying the experience.
