The kit is a large chemical factory comprised of all sorts of different types of building bashed together to form a big factory complex. I wouldnt even want to consiter scratching it. Besides they all ready did all the hard stuff for me. LOL

Also Model Power does some of the old AHM kits, I believe.
Many of the AHM kits were made by Pola, Faller, etc. so you might see if Walthers has the same kit.
I've found some old kits at the James J. Reeves Auction:

BTW, did you check International Hobby Corporation's kits? IHC is the successor to AHM and AHM Regal Way. Perhaps they offer the kit.

Didn't know Malcolm Furlow is on their design staff - or are they channelling John Allen?

Quite a few AHM kits were based on E Moore's buildings, decsribed in articles he wrote for MR and RMC in the 50s and 60s. He liked using balsa, free lanced most of them, and invented great back stories to justify his creations. His best known is perhaps the Molasses Mine, which is still around, but under another name.
