New N and HO Scale Co-Op Storage Sheds Add Detail Along any Line
Milwaukee, Wis. -- Walthers announces the release of the Cornerstone Series®
Co-Op Storage Shed kit. This easy-to-build model is available in two scales;
the N Scale version will be released in December 2003 and the HO Scale
version in February 2004.
The new Co-Op Storage Shed is a model that's at home on any siding in any
era. Thousands of these structures are found across the continent in yards,
at team tracks, fuel dealers, lumberyards and, of course, at grain
elevators. Their function is strictly utilitarian: to provide shelter and
temporary storage during the transfer of cargo between freight cars and
wagons or trucks. Similar buildings have been in use since the 1800s and
many still stand today, so its a natural addition to steam- or diesel-era
The easy-to-build Cornerstone Series kit features a wood structure on
"stilts" that bring the floor height to the level of a box car floor. Each
side of the building has a pair of sliding doors (non-operable) and each end
has a window. Also included are full-color printed signs for various grain
businesses. When built, the N Scale model measures 4-1/4 x 2-3/4 x 2-1/4"
10.8 x 7 x 5.7cm; and the HO Scale version measures 7 x 4-1/2 x 3-3/4" 17.8 x 11.4 x 9.5cm.
The N Scale Co-Op Storage Shed, 933-3230, is priced at $17.98 and the
Scale version, 933-3529 is $19.98. For more information on Cornerstone
