Wall Detailing Parts

by ITLA Scale Models
View web page

ITLA Scale Models re-enters the S-scale market (they used to carry tall S-scale skyscrapers and radio towers), with a detailing set. The figure shown in the photo is not included, but it is an O-scale figure, so that should provide some reference for the size of the parts, and it appears that they would indeed be usable in S-scale. See their web site for a complete listing of what is included, and ideas for how to assemble some of the parts.

Gazebo

by Scale_Model_StructureS
View web page

Ed Sauers wanted a gazebo for his layout, so he found one on Shapeways, but it was in HO-scale. He contacted the designer, and within two days the S-scale version was available for sale. The model measures approximately 16 scale feet in diameter and a little over 13 feet tall. Due to the volume of the model, it is not cheap to print, but it may make for a very nice scene in your layout's town center or park.

banta modelworks Warehouse Kit

The Warehouse

by banta modelworks
View web page

banta modelworks has the S-scale version of "The Warehouse" kit available.

Earlier this year, banta modelworks took over the line of kits that they had sold to Commercial Scale Models (in 2014) when that company suddenly closed-up shop. Bill Banta says that he re-acquired the entire product line, and he can produce any of the kits again. However, they are not always-in-stock items, but rather the kits are made as they are ordered. He has a few of them listed on his web site, but use the NASG web site's structures listing to see which ones are of interest to you, and then contact Bill. The banta modelworks listing can be viewed here, and the Building & Structure Co. product line (the one that they re-acquired) can be viewed here. A combined total of 130 kits!

Masterpiece Models currently sells a tool for making corrugated panels from sheet foil in several scales. S-scale modeler TC Carr contacted the company to see if they would consider making it for S-scale. They said they would, provided we could come up with a minimum order of 50.
