O Scale On30 On3 - Calhan Ore Mine

Relegated to history, there was a time when small cut stone ore mines like this were common sites across North America. Scratch built from custom cast RESIN PLASTIC this fully built mostly plastic model will outlive us all. With a fully open base (no base), and a painted interior, this model is move in ready. Just drop it in place and add your own interior furniture and/or lights.

Several washes of ink and acrylic based stains were applied to create the look of naturally aged irregular cut stone. There's a long ore dump ramp on one end with access door and a short tailings ramp on the other. Window pull shades hang in all windows and there's a separate highly detailed rusty crusty fuel oil tank you can place anywhere you like.

The simulated multilayered tarpaper roof with visible lap lines, nail heads and repair patches was built up from several wrinkled layers of acrylic dust. It took several hours and many separate applications to create the 3D effect of multiple layers of worn, tarpaper roofing. Windows have clear dusty window glass plastic installed with no mullions hovering. This is a well built, mostly plastic structure model with a fully open bottom (no base).

Approximate size is a little under 10 inches deep including the ramps by about 5 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches tall to the top of the roof peak (not including the smokestack). You will receive the actual model shown in the photos. Items combined if possible and include professional packing and insurance. Background scenery shown is NOT included.
