Remember these boxes?
And when I could finally scrape up the cash for one of these kits, they did not disappoint. Precision milled wood, excellent instructions and drawing/templates. A little care and concern, and very nice models resulted.
And Campbell is still with us today. Remarkable. No laser cutting, no peel and stick. Traditional model kit building at it's best.
I need a water tank for the town of Simcoe. CNR had a tank just north of the main that fed a water plug that was between the main and the passing track. I looked online for awhile and I kept coming back to the Campbell kit. The proportions were what I wanted and I knew that the level of weathering I wanted would be easier on a wooden kit.
Here's the result.
Once the scenery crew comes through Simcoe I'll "green" the base and then secure the tank in place. A very pleasant build.
