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. The quoted price for the S-scale version would be $15 US. To organize this effort, TC is collecting names of people would order one if it were produced in S-scale.

Full-width and partial-width (with all-window option)

by Todd Architectural Models & Layouts
View web page

Todd Architectural Models & Layouts announces that their O-scale factory flats are now available in S-scale. The model is based on the Paterson Silk Factory in Paterson, New Jersey. The model features a laser scored and cut elevation, window and door elements, added sills and cast stone, and built-up laser scored/cut or styrene cornice detail. The full-width elevation piece measures 9" long by 10-1/8" tall and includes six columns of windows. The partial-width elevation piece measures 3-1/8" long by 10-3/8" tall and includes two columns of windows. An entrance canopy will be available as an option for both elevation pieces. The purpose of the partial-width is to provide a seamless connection between multiple full-width elevation pieces. The models may be purchased built-up and painted as a flat (nominally 3/8" deep) or as a shadowbox (nominally 1-1/4" deep). The shadowbox version has individual floors, is ready for 5050 SMD LEDs, and has a wire-routing tube installed (LEDs pre-installed is an option, see below).

When you place your order, these are the options available to you:
- window style: single-height, double-hung; or, 2/3-height double-hung, 1/3-height fixed 4-over-2 pane (shown in the photos).
- clear or translucent glazing.
- brick or cast stone cornice.
- first-floor layout format: all windows; or, a pair of doors in window columns 3 and 4; or a single larger door centered between window columns 3 and 4.

Their web site shows only the O-scale models, but their S-scale model prices are about $10 cheaper, and they are as follows:

"Full-width" Basic Elevation:
- flat only = $80
- shadowbox unlit = $90
- shadowbox lit = $120

"Partial-width" Basic Elevation:
- flat only = $55
- shadowbox unlit = $65
- shadowbox lit = $90

Three-piece Set (two full and one partial):
- flat only = $210
- shadowbox unlit = $240
- shadowbox lit = $310

Two-piece Add-on Set (one full and one partial, see photos):
- flat only = $130
- shadowbox unlit = $150
- shadowbox lit = $200

To order, the company recommends contacting them via e-mail or via telephone to make arrangements:
