Concrete Backdrop Kit #2 "Scratch Buildin' Series"
Brand New Kit!
by Thomas A. Yorke
Enterprises/Scale Model Masterpieces New
96' x 16' (1-7/8" x 9-1/8")
This impressive kit is
based on a structure standing
in San Bernardino, California. The original cast concrete structure (shown
above) was built around 1920, but it has seen some changes over the years and
our rendition incorporates these. Our patterns reflected the uneven and rough
wooden form board impressions as well as "oozing" concrete from between them so
typical of cast concrete structures.
The castings for this backdrop kit are from our "original" Thomas A Yorke
masters which reflect all of the detail of this structure and
more. This kit is composed of Labstone castings including the partial roof with
parapet wall and "tar paper" roofing already cast in place - simply paint &
weathering with Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains. Grandt window castings and Scale
Model Masterpieces details (listed below), Cyclone Roof Vents are included along
with our usual comprehensive instructions and plans plus a color photograph for
a truly easy to assemble kit. The scale 108' x 16' size will dwarf two 50' box
cars along side!
This kit comes with the finest Thomas A Yorke castings including a very nicely
detailed original concrete carvings. The windows, doors, and a bunch of other
stuff including Scale Model Masterpieces Details 1 each of the following
SMM5090, SMM5135, SMM5165, SMM5178, & SMM5181.
NOTE: Very Heavy Kit-almost

walls, roof, loading docks and doors of this kit for individual purchase.
