Plan 1657 American Standard Gas Electric Kit Doodlebug O Scale
American Standard Passenger Kit are back available!
This beautiful kit is Plan 1657 the Gas / Electric. The kit uses all the same exquisite patterns that Ralph Brown Originally designed, just from fresh new molds. We took a look at the kit from the "builder perspective" and made some great changes that technology advances have allowed. We now include a laser scribed and cut floor which has all the marks so you know exactly where to attach the center sills and braces, and bolsters. Takes a lot of the guesswork out and leaves a nice finish. We also have include laser cut walkways and the roof is now upgraded to resin and styrene instead of wood that needed to be shaped and sealed. The kit comes with an 18" printed diagrams of the assembly for easy to follow assembly of the kit. We have tried to lay everything out so that anyone can assemble from novice to experienced builder. If you bought one of the original kits you will also see we updated quite a few of the castings, the taking a block and shaping a fuel tank or tool box is defiantly not the standard today and thankfully 3d printing has given us the opportunity to make the kit even better.
Look for the other 70+ designs to be coming back soon!
