HO/HOn3 Kit 207 - Logging Camp Essentials
Logging Camp Essentials
Essentials utilizes the latest laser cutting technology all the while relying upon classic scratch building techniques and innovative weathering and scenery methods to achieve the ultimate in realistic modeling and construction. No shortcuts or compromises, just sound modeling, awesome scenery, and the best instructions in the hobby! Our methods, laser cut modeling guides/jigs, and techniques were invented here creating a modeling environment that a new craftsmen will enjoy and a seasoned veteran will find satisfying. Look very closely at the photographs, the rich detail and character is achieved using individual boards glued over laser cut cardboard wall bases. Accurate, fast, and simple to construct, depth and texture are the hallmark of this type of board on board modeling and the techniques and philosophies employed are discussed in detail in the manual.
SierraWest kits strive to offer the modeler a unique approach to the craftsmen kit, unlike anything else found in the hobby. With the perfect blend of scratchbuilding construction techniques and laser cut components, we use the laser as a modeling aide, not a replacement for the character and complete realism board on board modeling achieves. A philosophy we will never waver from!
The diorama flooplan presented below illustrates the four kits and how the various structures form the complete Logging Camp scene. Notice railroad camp ties-in to the left and is the "end of the line". A small turntable or series of switches may be used at the modelers discretion to complete the track layout and feed the loco and service shops. (To the right, Central Camp.) The diorama measures approximately 24" x 48" and as is the case with a SierraWest kit, the structures may be rearranged to suit your taste and space requirements.
Everything pictured is included except vehicles, track, and scenery.
Logging Camp Essentials Includes the following structures as follows:
Two different bunk houses, a cook house, and a shower/latrine car. These are situated along a hillside at different heights with walkways connecting them. The quintessential view of a logging camp!
Also included is the classic passenger/freight station, a fuel depot with super detailed yard, tool shed, and a rigging shed that is used to store cables, blocks and other supplies.
