An Early Log Cabin w/o ChimneyThe Log Cabin is one of the first kits that Bachmann made. Early kits would come with sections of rustic fence, and a tree, but did not have a chimney. This version is shown to the left.

The Davy Crockett Log Cabin

For the Davy Crockett version of the Log Cabin, Bachmann would modify the front wall of selected LC-2 kits so that the three mounting pins (see the arrows to the right) on the Kentucky rifle could be mounted above the door. This cabin is sometimes found with a paper bear skin glued to the front door.
The Davy Crockett Log Cabin was available in bagged packaging. This is the rarest of all of the variations of this structure, especially when found in its original bag. Collectors are still debating if this version came in a box, but boxes are generally used today to protect the pieces. The riffle is also known to have come in TAN and GOLD plated colors.

The Log Cabin has a color variation that came in the 1985 Scenic Classic kit. Called the "Log Cabin Retreat," this is the most difficult of the "Scenic Classic" kits to locate. The OLIVE DRAB version is seen above is scarcer than the more common BROWN/RED color that is to the right.
