This small kit is from Banta Modelworks.  It is 1/48 scale (On30)

I found the kit a pleasure to work with, couple things took a little time to get my head around.

The picture shows the componets roughly in place, the final set up will be done on the layout

The staining was done using Inks & Alco.

Neat little structure, and you did a great job on the assembly, Don.

We are all waiting to see some shots of the layout once you get done with the rock casting.

Looks great Don. :Salute:


I know just what you mean,

I was confused a few times when building mine,

but after I got the sub-assemblies together, things clicked.

Your model looks great.

I have been considering that model, but I am waiting to see how this one turns out in HO.

Raggstoriches is selling this model in "S" scale but will offer it in HO soon.

I may even end up with enough space to fit both of them into what I am planning.

Weathering on the timbers looks perfect.
