Recreate the exciting rail service and action that surrounds America's auto industry with this series of HO Scale structure kits. Every phase of the operation is here, from the front office where decisions are made, to the Distribution Facility where new cars or trucks are loaded for their first long trip by train.
Handsomely detailed and designed for easy construction, each kit features plastic parts molded in colors, complete instructions and through a special licensing agreement, authentic Ford logo decals! (Of course, you can model your favorite brand with these kits which are typical of buildings used by all major automakers.)

As small industries became successful companies, most needed purpose-built office space. Though dwarfed by ever-larger manufacturing or assembly plants designed to do one or two jobs, no other building on the property typically did as much work under one roof. Here, an army of bookkeepers, stenographers, secretaries, mail clerks, accountants, telephone operators, janitors, typists and others were needed to handle the volume of work.
Constructed alongside a busy street or other highly visible location, the office projected power, strength and confidence. They were often constructed of stone or brick and included a variety of dignified trim elements. This also required they be remodeled fairly often, to keep them looking modern and up-to-date.
Based on a prototype built by the Ford Motor Company at Dearborn, Michigan, in the 1920s, this building once served as the headquarters of the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton railroad. On your HO Scale layout, virtually any large industrial complex, such as a steel mill, brewery, or manufacturing plant needs a building like this located on the property. With its shape, size and numerous windows, it's typical of many public buildings as well. With appropriate details and figures available separately, it could be used to model a school, city hall, hospital, courthouse or other government offices as well.
