  • Product Information

This is the HO Scale Pennsylvania MO Tower - LASERkit(R) - Laser-Cut Wood Kit - 5 x 3 x 4-1/2'' Kit from American Model Builders.

Product Features
  • Based on MO Tower, the prototype of this kit served the Pennsylvania Railroad at Creston, Pennsylvania, and similar towers were found all along the railroad. In service from 1899 until 1994, arrangements were made to preserve MO, but it collapsed while being moved off railroad property and was sadly demolished in December, 1998. Working from the original 1899 plans as well as photos and sketches, the finished model depicts the tower as it appeared from the 1940s to the end.
  • The kit incorporates Bild-Strate construction so that parts are easily aligned during assembly without using complex templates and wax paper or special jigs. With MO Tower, the freestanding staircase has footer components tabbed into the stock sheet, which are left in place until the stairs, risers, and stair tower are completed.
  • Other authentic details include all of the prototype's gingerbread trim, decorative rafter ends and second floor corbels, plus a resin casting for the two-story-plus tall chimney. The second story is engineered as a sub-assembly to replicate the delicate look of the prototype; each of these window walls" is built in layers with separate glazing and peel & stick sashes, then joined to the first floor. The kit also has knock-outs on the first floor, so that Interlocking Components (sold separately) may be retrofitted to the existing structure if desired.
