Wills Building Kits and Accessories for Modern Image OO Gauge (1/76 scale)
This new modular system from WILLS lets the modeller add-on or adapt the base kit with extensions and frontages to accurately recreate a 21st century scene.
With a number of "blind" cuts inside the walls of the kit the modeller selects where to place the doors, windows and shutters.
Optional extra accessories also give further variations.
Kits are in coloured plastic or for a more realistic finish they can be painted using Enamel or Acrylic paint
The modern level crossing, with its familiar barriers and suspended metal curtains, and associated equipment, is now available in model form, and will be welcomed by modellers of the contemporary railway scene. This detailed plastic kit contains a wealth of parts:
- Roadbed, complete with anti-trespass boards.
- Four curtained barriers in the lowered position, and four raised barriers (giving a choice as to how the level crossing should be modelled).
- Barrier supports, warning lights and road signs.
- Relocatable Equipment Building (R.E.B.).
- CCTV & Lighting Posts x 2.
- Approx. 580mm of palisade fencing.
The roadbed has been designed to be used in conjunction with PECO Streamline Code 100 & 75 flexible track for single or double track lines, and additional roadbed can be added for multiple tracks. It should be noted that it is not compatible with Setrack track geometry, so modellers will have to contemplate some modifications to the roadbed to make it fit. On a single track section it would be fine.
Although intended as a static model, provision has been made to enable operation using the Pecolectrics SmartSwitch servo motor control system, the barrier pedestal being hollow and parts included to facilitate a connection with the servo link wire. The effect will be quite impressive.
