This week we’ve been hard at work on a new Town Fire Station kit which will be available in OO, HO and N scales. The kit is based on a fire station just up the road from us in Ashby De La Zouch. In real life it’s a single appliance, retained fire station of modern design and we’ve adapted it and tweaked it a little to make it work as 1:76 scale and N scale kit and we’re really happy with the progress so far. We’re also including a brick built training tower, car park & surrounding asphalt area too.
Tina has been working hard building up the sections of the new kit, with the walls for the appliance room and the main building coming on in leaps and bounds. We’re adding lots of detail too including optional signs and posters, separately applied window sills, a choice of sliding and roller style doors for the appliance room, interior appliance room detailing and a realistic weathered finish too.
Here’s a few more shots of some of the sections that are ready for final assembly.
We’re hoping to launch the kit next week, just as soon as the prototype is finished and we’ve finished fine-tuning the instructions.
Hope you like it… Any comments and feedback on the progress so far would be much appreciated.
