Cardboard model building manufacturer Metcalfe Models announced an unexpected pair of new kits for N gauge modellers this week.
PN961 Modern Retail Unit
A large edge of town centre shop, the kit includes a large choice of signs and interiors from a DIY store to a supermarket. The back of the building includes loading and fire exit doors so it can be viewed from all sides.
The assembled model is 111mm wide, 80mm deep and 66mm tall.
OO modellers won't miss out either, as the kit has also been produced in 4mm scale, part number PO361 .
PN912 Country Goods Shed
The goods shed is designed to fit alongside the country station and single track engine shed kits already in the Metcalfe range, featuring the same colours and decoration details as these models to produce a harmonious look to your layout.
The goods shed, including office, is 137mm wide, 62mm deep and 63mm tall. It can be accompanied by a platform 99mm long and 27mm wide.
In addition, there is a weighbridge office 32mm long and 25mm deep.
A 4mm scale version of this kit is already available for OO modellers.
As with all Metcalfe kits, the main body is made from die-cut, heavyweight cardboard that is pre-decorated so no painting is required. Windows are printed acetate.
Full details are available from the Metcalfe Models website.
