Specific Item Information: The inspiration for this kit came from plans in the January 1982 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman, the "Hinkle Milling Co.", in Thomasville, NC. The original structure was built in 1883, and since it was continually added to over the years, it was eventually a sprawling industrial site of considerable appeal. Unfortunately for history buffs, we learned shortly after the 2001 release of our HO scale version (Dabler Mill & Supply Company) that the entire site had been razed, bulldozed away into nothingness. Features Tab & Slot wall construction, positionable Peel & Stick assembly windows with laser-cut glazing, Peel & Stick doors and trim, Peel & Stick tar paper, rolled roofing and simulated asphalt brick paper, wood deck loading dock, white metal smokejacks, and full color signage. As pictured (small office building may be modeled attached to or separate from main structure), assembled kit measures 7" Wide x 10" Deep x 2.5" High.
Road Name History:
Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.

Brand/Importer Information:
LASERKITS are designed in a Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) program, then laser-machined at our computer-controlled laser workstations.

LASERKITS are cut and engraved from high quality woods (and occasionally styrene) with incredible precision and accuracy. The resulting edges are clean, need little, if any, sanding, and yield precise details, and exact-fitting parts.

There is no frustrating, time-consuming, board by board construction with LASERKITS. Side and roof pieces are tabbed and slotted, so no error can be made during assembly. Windows, doors, roofing materials, shingles, and trim boards are all laser-cut, and have a self adhesive backing which has been tested in the St. Louis summer heat and humidity, and found to hold under the most adverse conditions.
