Gaugemaster GM430 Mortimer GWR Station Kit
Product code: AB4212
This kit is based on the structure still
seen today at Mortimer on the Reading to Basingstoke line. The building
was designed by the great architect of the Great Western Railway, Mr
Brunel himself, and is pretty much intact since its construction in 1848.
This ornate design is known as 'Italianate',
and was a pretty common feature on the GWR. Most buildings in this style
have mostly disappeared, with only the similar but much modified
structures at Chepstow remaining.
Because of the longevity of this particular
building, the kit will lend itself for all time periods from the 1840s
onwards, and will come with accessories such as nameboards, a GWR
platform seat, spear fencing and modern image lighting.
Although not used as such in real life, the
stations design lends itself to also being used as an island platform
building so can be considered as a very versatile kit.
Contains 1x OO Scale pre-coloured plastic
kit in three colours. Additional painting and weathering can be
completed as required.
Kit measures approximately 8" (20cm) long x
4.5" (11.5cm) wide x 4" (10cm) high
