For Christmas a year or so ago I received the Bachmann Pink Boutique as a present from my daughter. If you are familiar with these kits, the Silver Series Plasticville, they are very basic and lack a lot of detail. Since I tend to receive these on a regular basis and the associated pressure to include them on the layout I build them. However, I have learned how to take them for a drab, lifeless thing to something I want on my layout. So the purpose of this topic is to show how something cheap can be turned into something worthwhile. Here is what I had to start with: Front cover of the box Rear cover of the box. The parts bag.
