A Legend Returns in O Scale

part one: the office and warehouse

This O Scale release of railroad camp is visually true to the original HO Scale design I introduced in 2002. It was important to preserve the look and feel of that original kit. The original HO Scale railroad camp kit is a hard to find classic now. It included three main structures. The office and warehouse, truck repair facility, and boiler and welding shop. The O Scale version will include all three kits in original form with this office and warehouse up first.

Nick Ogden created the beautiful stone wall masters and Karl adapted them for use here. The resin stone wall castings feature interlocking corners for ultimate realism, no seams! Laser cut sub walls combined with my comprehensive instructions and simple techniques for board on board construction means any modeler can achieve results to be proud of. I have been teaching and refining these techniques for decades. You will feel comfortable with them quickly. The appearance of railroad camp relies heavily upon these modeling techniques. Commercial milled wood siding could never reproduce the stunning realism pictured here. This has been a hallmark of every SierraWest kit!

Details make the scene come alive. Seriously, without them it is just not a diorama! As is typical with all my kits since the very beginning, I loaded railroad camp up with the highest quality resin and white metal details found anywhere. Made here by me, the crispness and clarity is second to none. All the junk and clutter pictured is included, along with the best instructions for painting and weathering them that you will find. Straight forward and realistic in the methodology, these techniques have been developed and refined over many years using paint and artists chalk. All modelers will be very satisfied with the materials and techniques utilized to finish the kit. Customers new to my kits will find it a fantastic way to improve their skills and gain valuable experience with new techniques and tools.

Laser cut windows and window glass make construction simple. Additional laser cut components includes wooden shingles and cutting and positioning jigs for rafters, fascia, window frames, etc... These laser cut jigs were invented by me and first used over 7 years ago in my original O Scale kit. I use my lasers as an aid to improve and help your modeling, not a substitute. This is very important! You will never improve your modeling skills if you only build kits where the laser has done all the work for you. Take your time and study the photographs, you will not find the tell tale signs of the laser. Crafting a realistic scene like railroad camp relies upon the perfect combination of design, individual details and award wining techniques. More of my customers win awards at the National train shows with SierraWest kits than any other manufacturer...
