Blair-088 Leeton Depot Kit

Leeton Depot - Hip roof with flared eaves really sets this depot apart. Small combination depot includes loading ramp. Based on a Rock Island standard design

The pagoda style or flared roof eaves along with the bay window on the front make this a unique, but very attractive station.

Blair-090 Fred & Red's Cafe Kit : N Scale : Available

Blair-090 Fred & Red's Cafe Kit

Fred & Red's Cafe - Cool little café kit would be at home in urban areas, small towns and roadside. Many extras in this kit. And easy to build too.

After losing the family farm, Fred & his brother Red started their restaurant at the height of the depression in 1933 along Route 66 in the desert. Serving "famous" hamburgers, chili and other short order items the brothers prospered. The brothers sold the restaurant in the 1960's and retired to Palm Springs. The couple that bought the restaurant retained the name and the menu and prospered too, that is until the old highway was bypassed by the new Interstate Highway. Fred and Red's is still open on the lonely desert highway, but business is slow and the structure is showing its age.

The previous history is a purely fictional account. But hamburger and short order restaurants like this were, and still are, located all over the United States. Fred & Red's depicts a restaurant that has seen better days and would be at home in any business district, industrial area or as a roadside stop.

Kit features laser-cut floor, aged sidewalk, roofing, interior and exterior walls with tab and slot connections. Exterior walls are aged clapboard and etched with nail holes. Also includes laser-cut window glazing, peel-n-stick doors, peel-n-stick trim, and peel-n-stick roofing for easy assembly. Window frames are injection molded plastic. Also includes signs, burglar bars, lampshades and cast metal smokejack. And last but not least a laser-cut "open" sign and a rooftop "eat" sign.

Blair-091 Tom's Corn Crib Kit : N Scale : Available

Blair-091 Tom's Corn Crib Kit

Tom's Corn Crib - Octagonal corn crib for storage ears of corn for livestock feed. Corn cribs are really great looking structures that used to be found on nearly every farm.

Tom's Corn Crib is featured in the June 2005 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman as a scratchbuilding project. Tom Stolte, the co-author, friend and owner of Oddball Decals, has granted us permission and given us assistance in the creation of this kit. Thanks, Tom!

Corn cribs are used for storing shucked ears of corn. The slat sides allows for the circulation of air so the corn will dry and not spoil. The dried corn on the cob was fed whole or shelled and used as animal feed. Corn cribs were found on just about any farm that raised it's own corn and livestock.

The prototype for this kit was found near Jarbalo, Kansas by Tom Stolte. This eight sided corn crib is a little unusual, but makes for a fantastic model.

Kit features
laser-cut concrete floor, wood slat walls and framing, flashing, hinges and signs. Also includes plywood roofing with laser etched three tab shingles. Laser cut base with locating holes for each wall make this kit a snap to put together. Adhesive backing on some of the parts for fast and easy assembly.

N scale kit dimensions: 1.43" diameter x 1.54" tall.
