Downtown Deco Shipping Warehouse
Shipping Warehouse Background* Kit
This huge warehouse is a "flat" and consists of 3 walls only--the front and 2 sides. It is designed to be used as a backdrop building as it is only 3 1/2" deep x 28" long. (In a tight space situation, the side walls can be omitted or shrunk to make the profile even narrower). What an impressive background to park a long string of cars in front of! Kit features beautifully detailed hydrocal castings, laser cut wood loading dock doors, a complete sign set as well as instructions for painting and aging. A great new limited edition offering from Downtown Deco. (Kit weight, 2.2 lbs).
* Background Kit uses. The "back wall" of any layout is often a "weak spot", visually. Some modelers simply add a "sky" backdrop or if space permits build a mountain area with some tree cover. The advantage of flat background kits such as this lie in the fact that in spite of their very narrow width, they add great depth to the layout by giving the impression that something is "there". Trains passing by in front an impressive structure such as this come alive with a sense of purpose, their motion is highlighted as they pass by. Or, if space permits, you can add a siding in front of this warehouse. As the photo above illustrates, it looks great with freight!!!
