2 x Four modular fronts: http://r.ebay.com/EssIKe
A modular "architect game" in N scale with storefronts, upper floors and cornices. Each building is 46.5 mm wide, a four house row is fitting exactly into a 186 mm Kato Street track length.
Each building front is different, but all storefronts, upper floors and cornices can be mixed.
The kit is easy to build - assembly requires a steady hand and some patience. You will need to provide: white glue, some sandpaper, a pin or a toothpick, a good fine cutting knife and tweezers.
The parts are cut from 1mm MDF. If any part is missing or broken when opening, please send me an e-mail with a photo or sketch of the part.
All parts are on a fret-plate and have to be cut out of it very carefully, along the short connecting links. Use a very sharp cutting knife.
Start with the storefront A, then mount the floor B, and finish with the cornice C.
There are several hood designs available for each house. Main Street 2 and 4 can be mounted without hoods.
The upper floor brick facade don’t need to be painted, if you want to represent yellow brick. Otherwise you may choose a red terracotta shade.
Even the storefront, the windows, the cornice and the hoods can stay without paint. But you can apply also bright colors, there is a prototype for everything!
We recommend «thick» paints, the MDF soaks up a lot of paint, make some trials on surplus MDF before. Personnaly, I use acrylic paint pens with fine points (brands like Posca or Molotow)
I would appreciate any suggestions or feedback. Have fun with the assembly.
