Micro-Scale Models offers a revised second edition release for its Whitney Glass Works (WGFHO). This HO-scale kit, which sells direct from the manufacturer for $245 (plus shipping) comes with laser-cut base, walls, floors, ceiling, chimneys, and roof sections. In addition to wood components, this kit includes laser-cut styrene window material and window shades. The building’s “Whitney Glass Works” sign is a provided laser-cut feature with parts available for wall (as shown) or roof placement. Enhancing the appearance of this multistory structure are laser-cut trim with rafters, overhang supports, and rafter tails. The kit also comes with Tichy Train Group-made windows, doors, door hinges, and lamps.
Step-by-step directions with color pictures will guide you through this build. The company states the finished Whitney Glass Works presents an overall size of 10 1/2 by 8 3/8 inches. The hobbyist, which Micro-Scale Models recommends should be an experienced model builder, will need to supply paint, glue, and hobby tools. The model views show additional scenery, vehicles, and figures not included in this kit. Don Reed’s Micro-Scale Models was founded in 1989.
