  • A Great Transition between your Layout Scenery and Background Scenes
  • Finally! There's a quick, affordable way to add scenery anywhere space is limited - without the added time and trouble of kitbashing!
  • Background Building Walls let you use that last little bit of space to create a realistic background for any industrial area. These HO Scale kits can be used on the edge of your benchwork, along a shelf or modular layout and in dioramas. Once installed, they provide a smooth, realistic transition between 3-D foreground scenes and printed or painted backgrounds. (Check out Walthers Instant Horizons printed backgrounds for more ideas on creating a backdrop for your layout.)
  • Based on popular Cornerstone Series(R) structures, you can build them stock or easily customize them. Each has scribed cut lines molded on the inside so you can cut new angles or reduce the width to fit your pike. Each building also comes with a variety of add-on details, a partial roof and colorful sign decals.
  • Travel by train through any big city and you'll see a panorama of brick factory buildings. Modeling them is easy with the new Plant No. 4, and since its a Background Building it's perfect for adding big city detail in limited layout spaces. Just add it in front of a painted or printed backdrop to smooth the transition from foreground buildings and scenery. Or combine it with other industrial buildings to make a larger complex in less space. It can also be used as a stand-alone building, or as part of a line of industries modeled with additional Background Buildings.
  • A great detail for popular modeling eras, the kit includes the Plant No. 4 building front and realistic decal signs.

This kit is excellent! The assembly instruction sheet I feel could be bigger and clearer. About four of the window frames on the top floor need to filed to make them fit the wall, otherwise an easy to assemble, well detailed kit. You also get an extra long back wall which you can use for the back of the building or cut up and use it for partially destroyed buildings, to me that's so use full as I am using this building as part of wwII damaged city for war gaming. As a railway buff I'm sure you would love it, great, 11 out of 10.Great value for your money.
