Our first project with the N Scale Architect was this ‘after-market’ application of a metal grid platform and railings to a proprietary tanker vehicle.
The BNSF Fire Control set-up is a multi-media ‘special project’. The base vehicle is proprietary, the platforms, hose reels, cage and strapping is etched brass, The tanks are cast in resin.
The `International Harvester un-sprung farm wagon kit benefits from the thinner 8 thou brass used in the N-Scale fret.
This model is almost 20 years old. Typical sight on the streets in the UK and US well into the 20thC.
Difficult to appreciate that some of these models, like the Farm Cart pictured here, are only 12mm in length.
The lamps on this Victoria/Central Park carriage are particularly exquisite. And really tiny.
Special Projects come in all shapes and sizes. A request for diminutive Reindeer produced these little chaps. They are laminated to get detail on both sides and the antlers are applied separately.
They were a component in this multi-media Special Project for the N Scale Collectors Club via the `N Scale Architect.
The ‘Concord Coach’ (named for Concord MA where many ‘Western’ mail coaches were made) stretched the limits of what could be achieved at N Scale. We were very pleased with the result.
The Concord Coach stated out as another Special Project but the kit is now available as a ‘stand-alone’ item from the N Scale Architect. It was created as a pair of coaches in Well Fargo livery perched on a flat car.
The ‘crane load’ project befitted from the ability of the etching process to preproduce very small section lattice, such as those found on crane booms.
This was another multi media project, still in development.
The Climax/Aeromotor pattern wind-pump has proved a popular kit in N scale, many HO modellers finding it useful as a ‘background’ feature, forcing the perspective on larger dioramas.
Here, the wind-pump is shown with its ‘balcony’ style maintenance platform. This was mainly a UK feature. In the US a more vestigial affair was deemed appropriate. Both are supplied.
A bus/platform shelter. About 20mm in length.
A recent addition to the range is this US style telephone kiosk. Etching gives the opportunity to offer ‘raised’ lettering which, at N Scale, wold challenge the best model signwriter.
