West Garage Models - formerly GEM
- produces a variety of models and accessories.
Our history goes back to December 2nd of 2009 with GEM (Garage Exclusive Models).
It starts with a small and simple resin kit, then another and then the diorama material, and bit by bit, we end up with a solid catalogue. Now, a change, a new image, a new name. The catalogue still has the same products and will have a lot more.
Street Parcel, item R72026
Simply packaged in a clear poly bag closed with a label, Street Parcel is a straight narrow resin roadway. The paving is modeled after a brick herringbone pattern. One edge has an end-to-end row for the curb.
detail and casting
Cast with a straw colored resin, the paving stones are crisply defined. I didn't notice any where the mortar joints blended one stone to another, although I would not worry about that unless I was modeling a freshly laid pavement.
There are a few pin-prick air holes here and there. I think they look like chips from the bricks.
My sample is not warped or bowed.
WGM markets it as 1/72. I show it with models ranging from 1/35 to HO ( 1/87 ). You may decide if it will work for your purpose. For me, it is suitable for a variety of uses from railway passenger depot platforms and floors (New York City's famous Pennsylvania Station) to patios to roadways, rural or urban.
The paving stones are crisply defined. That there are a few pin-prick air holes here and there is not a concern for me.
Street Parcel is a nice roadway or walking surface for 'braille scale.'
