Brand New Kit!

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
The castings for this backdrop kit are from our "original" Thomas A Yorke
masters which reflect all of the detail of this
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
