Shop Cabinet with Open Door
IntroductionThis new two-piece shop cabinet boasts a lot of detail, including a separate door casting so you can leave it off or open, your choice.
The ModelThis casting is 2" by 1/2" by 2" tall. Rusty Rail packages it in a clear plastic bag sealed with a card label header.
There was no flash on my sample, nor seam lines or bubbles. Casting is sharp with distinct wood grain detail, hinges, and a barrel full of parts and other items. Inside the cabinet are shelves holding bottles, cans, lanterns, pipe flanges and unions, wire spool, and other items. Atop the cabinet is a tool box, motor, and tools.
Scale?? Rusty Rail lists this casting on their O scale (1/48) page. However, I think it can work with other scales. I show it with a 1/48 figure and a 1/35 figure.
ConclusionWhether you model subjects of railroadia, military, automotive, sci-fi, figures, aviation or any other genre, this cabinet is great for detailing a maintenance scene.
Casting is sharp. Detail is impressive.
My only complain is that there is a thin layer of excess resin on the back that can be seen along the edges of the model -- if you look for it.
Please tell vendors and retailers that you saw this here - on RailRoadModeling.
