28S-CHW-107 is a ?28S? 4Ground Model Kit. ?28S? means this kit is highly detailed inside and outside with many pre-painted parts.
There are many possible reasons why these dwellings were coined ?Shotgun?! Some say they are called this because you can shoot a gun right through the dwelling, as all the external and internal doors are directly aligned; others say it is a term coined just after the civil war denoting homes made from old ammunition boxes.
These dwellings were, in effect ?Checklist Housing? - almost all are a standard lumber milled length of 12ft wide approx. and literally all were made from pre-cut checklist components. Once all components were ticked off the list the carpenters knew there was just sufficient to construct a single dwelling.
A very interesting possibility is the term ?Shotgun? derives originally from a mis-understanding of an accented ?Américain Français?. In English a ?Checklist? in the C19th would probably have been termed a ?tick-list?, with the influence of French on American English speakers tick became check and in French ?cocher une case? as a ?checkbox? on a ?checklist?. So just possibly ?cocher une shack? (a checklist house) was misunderstood/misheard as ?Shotgun Shack?!
