Newly Released... Sartore & Sons Electrical Supply Co is now available.
Sartore & Sons Electrical Supply Co is a mix of plastic-injection molded structure components and laser-cut components. It is a true 'multi-media" structure featuring brick, stone, wood, and metal... a truly unique and impressive industrial diorama structure.
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 imagined, newly designed, and newly released... and it is LOADED with details !!
The Sartore & Sons Electrical Supply Co industrial structure depicts a site that has expanded over the years - at first with just the large stone structure, and later with the added brick industrial building and walk-over that join the two. The name of the kit depicts that it's an electrical supply company, but of course can be modified to fit the needs of any modeler's layout and railroad.
The kit includes injection-molded walls for the main structural components, and also includes laser-cut components for the two clerestory structures, the roofs, the roofing materials (shake shingles and tarpaper strips), the expansive freight deck, and awning supports. The kit includes a set of stair stringer assemblies and a miniature version of the Rail-Scale-Models stair stringer assembly jig. It includes plenty of stryene strip and basswood stripwood for both bracing and details of the structure, and includes the injection-molded details sprue that includes a huge variety of details to use both on the structures and around the scene. The kit includes styrene tube and piano wire to create the piping details adjoining the two structures as well as the roof vents. There are detailed design drawings that show both the diorama layout & footprint as shown in the pilot build, but also a variety of alternative configurations for the scene that modelers may consider for their own build.
There is a lot of stuff in this box... a model and diorama scene that will keep the modeler busy for a while !!
The sample model shown was masterfully built by David Zimmerman.
Footprint: 11” x 11”
NOTE: Figures, vehicles, ground scenery, railroad track, and general diorama construction materials shown in model photos are not included in the kit. Pictures shown are of the pilot model construction; production models might vary slightly.
