Here Comes the "Back Road Buildin's"!

First Up: The Grocery
"Traveling the back roads years ago, one would happen across a tiny grocery store around every other bend in the road or over the next rise. Even today, these picturesque treasures can still be found. Wood siding deeply scarred by grain and rot and weathered a beautiful silver gray. Rusted tin roofing sheets all but covering the original wood shakes. Front porch sagging and with a decided lean. And as though in staunch defiance to this earthly appeal are a multitude of colorful metal signs plastered everywhere advertising the contents of the interior: colas, soaps, cigarettes, remedies, staples, and clothing." (Introduction from original 1980's advertising in the NG&SL Gazette magazine)

  The Grocery in O Scale is the first of this series with a bunch more to follow in both O Scale AND HO Scale. And we've kept the Re-Introductory pricing of this kit at it's Original  1987 Price! At least until we are ready to ship in about a week; and then the pricing will jump up a bit.

This *original* 1987 Thomas A. Yorke Ent. kit has been slightly revamped with some parts changed and others added as well as a significant update of the instructions. Now, we know that we could have kept the price down even more if we cast this kit in Hydrocal© and didn't have such high standards of casting quality (bubbles, pits, voids, etc.) to sell second quality castings. But, then if we did cut corners to save some money, you would not be able to appreciate the intricately, hand-carved details that Tom spent so many hours working on each and every original master pattern for this kit. Trust us, you would be able to tell the difference!

 This kit includes full-size drawings, scale lumber, Grandt Line windows & doors, and the  detailed construction and weathering instructions that you've come to expect from Scale Model Masterpieces, and a bunch more stuff! We'll share that with you later

O Scale Foot Print: 3-1/8"wide x 5-1/16"" long. We'll bet that there are a few S/Sn3 Modeler who can adapt this kit to their scale, too! 

  Be sure to make your pre-shipping Introductory Pricing Reservation purchase before it's too late and the price jumps up. Don't say that we didn't warn you! CLICK on any of the images to jump over to our website to make your reservation and see the latest updates.

Does your empire need some serious cooling power?
Scale Model Masterpieces has got your Heavy Duty Commercial/Rooftop A/C Units

Popular Mechanics A/C History:

 1902 Willis Carrier invents the Apparatus for Treating Air for the Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing and Publishing Co. in Brooklyn, N.Y. The machine blows air over cold coils to control room temperature and humidity, keeping paper from wrinkling and ink aligned. Finding that other factories want to get in on the cooling action, Carrier establishes the Carrier Air Conditioning Company of America.

 Since 1902 many many industrial & commercial buildings have added roof top A/C equipment to the building roofs as well as on the ground next to the structure. If your commercial and industrial structures needs cooling power to keep it's employees happy & working hard, you should add these four Roof Top Industrial A/C units to your factories and commercial buildings today!
