Joining its Arch Laser range of model structures is a detailed laser-cut 1:76 scale kit, supplied with interior details.

Model railway retailer and kit manufacturer, Osborn's Models of Bideford, North Devon has created a new multi-media kit as part of its growing Arch Laser range of models for N and OO scales. Depicting the standard Great Eastern 'box of wooden construction, the laser-cut wood components are designed to closely match the prototypical appearance of the structure, while separate interior detail is also provided. Osborn's Models recommends a sharp craft knife to remove parts from frets, PVA glue and paint to complete.

The manufacturer has revealed that a kit of the signal box is also available in 7mm:1ft scale.

Looks good, especially the roof trusses and the internal fittings. I think these boxes, which came with different numbers of sections, were supplied by Saxby and Farmer, signal engineers - am I right?
