Many of you may be familiar with “Frenchie Gratts,” the late owner, and you know the love and thought he put into the designing and building of his kits. You may also be aware of the high standards he used when constructing them, in honoring his memory, I am going to strive to keep ”Built-Rite Models” running with the same excellence he did.

The kits are laser cut out of basswood. Each kit comes with a complete easy-to-follow colored instruction booklet and layout sheet. Everything is in numbered bags to follow the instructions.  Kits include everything you need to complete, except paint, stain, tools, glue, any additional figures or vehicles and trees, etc.

An "O" scale Texas Barn has been added to the website. I am expanding with more models for both size scales as well. These will be added to the website when completed.

I stand behind each and every one of my kits. Any questions or problems, please feel free to contact me. There is no minimum order required, you may purchase one or more.

Thank you for your interest,

Jim Dimatteo
