1950s Refrigerated Produce Office/Warehouse Kit #HO-125 (NOS)
This Modern Warehouse kit represents a small structure of
the "tilt-up" style of construction. It gained popularity in the late
19SO's as an efficient means of fabrication. Pre-cast concrete slabs are lifted
into place by a crane and bolted to the framework. Variety is accomplished by
size, shape and texture of the pre-cast panels.
This is the first in our (Tom Yorke) series of Modern Industrial
Buildings of the 1940 to present time period. This structure is wedge shaped so
it will fit into the narrow space close to the inside of a turnout. The kit is
very easy to build, however, it is suggested the instructions be read through
completely and the plans studied before any construction is begun.
This kit comes with the finest Thomas A Yorke Hydrocal (white) castings including a very nicely detailed one-piece roof section and separate a/c units (kits) and steps. No additional details were provided in this kit. And yes, Doctor Ben's Weathering would look good on the roof. Directly below are the Elevation and Isometric Views of this kit. Instructions & drawings are full-size sheets. This is a NOS (New Old Stock) kit.
