Item: ARM35009
Scale: 1/35

Railroad modeling is being fortified with an ever expanding selection of models in the dominate military scale of 1/35. The Project Armor35 is an endeavor from Russia to create accurate 1/35 German and Soviet railway track circa the Great Patriotic War. Armor35 produces track and rail nails (spikes) in resin, wood and resin sleepers (crossties), scale sand and stone ballast, coal, and figures.

While there is not currently a 'model rail scale' for 1/35, it is very close to No. 1 Scale (also referred to as Gauge 1, Gauge One, 3/8", etc.) of 1/32. Regardless, it does afford some crossover to electric model railroading.

Currently Armor35 offers 20 1/35 models and accessories, including two figures. Resin, wood and other natural materials are used to create these authentic products.

Armor35 casting are crisp. There are very small bits of flash on a couple of nails.

These nails are very good and I happily recommend them.

Highs: High-quality casting, sharp and crisp, without air bubbles.
Lows: Minor.
Verdict: These nail spikes are good for all track and can be useful for many details.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
