LASERKit McCready's LTD "Pickle Packers and Condiments" Kit, HO Scale
LASERKITS® are quick, easy and fun to build for any modeler. The novice will be thrilled with the ease of construction, the easy-to-follow instructions, and professional look of the completed model. The experienced modeler can modify and super-detail each kit into a one-of-a-kind creation. LASERKITS are designed with a Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) program, then laser-machined and engraved from high-quality wood (and occasionally styrene) with incredible precision. The resulting edges require little, if any, sanding, and yield exact-fitting parts with accurate details. Siding and roof pieces are tabbed and slotted for error-free assembly. All windows, doors, roofing materials, shingles, and trim boards are laser-cut, and include a self-adhesive backing, which has been thoroughly tested and found to hold under the most adverse conditions. All kits are made in the USA.
McCready's Ltd. Kit is a great small industry to add to your HO scale layout. This unique kit conveys the frame construction of these small pickle packing plants with its 100% laser-cut real wood assembly, right down to the rafter tails, elevator tower, and four brine vats, which display individual wood planks and banding. Made from quality birch plywood and basswood, the modeler will easily be able to obtain that stained weathered look of the prototype factory from St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. Furthermore, the modular design of the kit, which includes the open platform with vats and loading/unloading docks situated around the main structure, affords the modeler relative ease in placement of the facility on their layout.
Includes everything the discriminating craftsman has come to expect from a LASERKIT including Peel & Stick windows, door, trim, and roofing material; custom scribed platform and dock decking; Tab & Slot wall and platform substructure assembly; laser-cut ladders and wheelbarrows; white metal smokejacks and elevator drive chain assembly; cast resin casks, crates, sacks, and even cucumber loads for the wheelbarrows; optional open vat with simulated brine, well-illustrated instructions, sections of our wood privacy fence, and full color signage.
