Colliery, laser-cut

Colliery, laser-cut

Postby Arseny » Tue May 12, 2015 6:26 am

I need a сolliery for my future layout.
So I ordered laser-cut kit to some Russian craftsman.
It seems to be good; so maybe some of you guys want to get such building for you layout(s) or dioramas?
If yes, I can order some more kits for you and then send them by mail to you.

Here are the photos of first preliminary pre-production model. There will be some add-ons and extention(s).

The kit is laser-cut, made of 0.6-mm maple veneer sheet, based on the cardboard basic structure.
It will NOT include supporting legs (I suppose I wiil cut them from balsa or use matchsticks; hope you can do something like that)
It also will not include clear plastic for windows and handrails.

The price will be $20-$25 per kit, approximately, I suppose; +shipping cost.

If you need such building(s), please inform me.

Arseny, I may be interested. I'd love to see pictures when it's done. What are the surrounding structures and equipment available - do you know?

What is the approximate footprint of the kit, Arseny? Simply doing some long range layout pre-planning.

Ok, ok, let's be simpler: COAL MINE BUILDING. :lol:
(I have showed off a little, haven't I ? :lol: )

The footprint is 180*127 mm.
The lower part of the building is 82x80 mm, the taller part - 111х47 mm

What structures do you talking about? I did not understand you well.

I did not plan to use any more buildings for the mine. But I am not a great expert; maybe I'm wrong and some more buildings are necessary?..
If you need some additional equipment - you can use Auhagen art. 42572 "Trucks and bicycle rack" (HO/TT scale) and maybe art.13308 "Loading crane"

As for me, I plan to use grab bucket from PSK Modelbouw; maybe with N-scale railroad crane from Bachmann; and order some dump trucks from RailTT.
As concerns railroad cars - I have some old open hoppers from Kemtron, PVM and Coastal Engineering and I plan to order some more from Bill Dixon (if they are still available).

For those who don't like metric (I'm hooked by mathematics):

180 mm × 127 mm = 7.09" × 5"
82 mm × 80 mm = 3.23" × 3.15"
111 mm × 47 mm = 4.37" × 1.85"

Now I've got photos of the final model and the kit.
(I did not see it personally yet; the photos were made by manufacturer)

The price is $25 per 1 kit (unassembled, of course); + shipping
(I must find out the shipping cost but I hope it will not be too expensive)

Staircase, handrails and supporting legs are not included;
although MAYBE it will be possilbe (later) to make some "additional package" including these parts.

I will order the first batch in a few days. If you want to get the kit
If you like it, tell me, and I will order kit(s) for you.
I accept Paypal
