American Ice Company is a plastic-injection molded structure kit with laser-cut details and components. It is a background flat structure kit.
Injection-molded components for this structure kit come into the Rail-Scale-Models product line-up as part of the acquisition of the Railway Design Associates structure kit business. ...this structure kit is newly designed and newly released, and it is LOADED with details !!
The American Ice Company structure depicts a large brick industrial building that houses an ice production and coal processing facility. You can see the prototype structure in the image below that was the inspiration for this model kit. The structure is designed as a background kit that will set nicely against a backdrop of your railroad layout. Of course, the structure can depict any other manufacturing or warehousing business that suits your needs. The kit includes injection-molded walls, laser-cut roof and back-wall pieces, newly design laser-cut windows and brick-fills, freight dock deck and roof structure, interior styrene bracing and stripwood, and a bunch of detail components.
Detail components include:
> Specially-designed laser-cut windows and window brick-fills - that include option to include exhaust fans as part of window assembly.
> Newly designed 3D-printed roof-top chiller unit (depicting the piece of equipment that set atop the prototype structure).
> Hydrocal-cast brick chimney.
> Hydrocal-cast roof-top water tank assembly.
> Hydrocal-cast staircase for the main entry door.
> Injection-molded details sprue with roof exhausts, chimneys, barrles, crates, concrete dock assembly, staircases, boiler assembly, and more.
> Printed signage as shown in model and stripwood to create roof-top sign billboards.
> Exterior lamps.
The background flat structure may be customized in different ways to best fit your layout space. The main front wall is made up of five (5) freight door / window sections plus the crown gable section, and one freight door / window section is used to model the two side walls. These side walls may be set to any depth desired.
The sample model shown was masterfully built by David Zimmerman.
