Brand/Importer Information:
Established in 1981, KANAMODEL PRODUCTS is a Canadian company owned by Model Railroaders and dedicated to bring authentic and accurate HO and N scale models of both Canadian prototypes and models of interest to all discerning Model Railroaders.
Every KANAMODEL kit is scaled from actual blueprints or from the buildings still standing. We do not manufacture kits of a whimsical or generic nature.
Our building structures are laser cut for precision, accuracy and ease of assembly.
In addition to our ever expanding range of regular kits, we also make a number of smaller but still highly detailed buildings which we call our KANAMODEL EXPRESS line in HO Scale and MINIKIT in N scale. These are easy to build and very economical but they are realistic and accurate so add to any layout alone or part o larger scenes.
In addition to buildings, we also produce cast weighted loads for hopper cars,
