Product ID K4001

HO Backwoods Water Tower


A new release with 3D printed find detail parts. This interpretation of a Backwoods Water Tower is of a design you would expect from creative woodsmen who used what was available to them. You can just imagine the Shays and other logging locomotives pulling up to this reservoir on the hill to fill their thirst for water.

Our rendition of this monument to steam in the woods is made up of a combination of finely milled strip wood, scribed siding, quality metal and resin castings plus laser cut pieces. From the square sockets in the foundation logs to the details of the front porch, you will be very proud to display this water tower on your layout.

Attention has been paid to ease the construction of this fine craftsman kit. Where it helps, beams are laser notched so you're not guessing at placement and some parts are already cut to size while others are left as long strips so you can modify the kit to fit your particular setting.A well documented 52 page instruction manual for the assembly of the Backwoods Water Tower is included. Many pictures with step by step instructions plus hints and other ideas to modify this kit to your particular taste are also there.

The fine detailed scribe siding and the quality piping castings are just some of what sets this model apart. This model is produced in the Rusty Stumps Scale Model work shop and held to the close standards you expect. You will be very proud of your water tower kit when you have finished construction and placed in on your layout or diorama.

Footprint- From the center line of the track allow 6-1/2" to the back by 3" wide. (HO scale 47' by 22')

Happy with this Kit and Manual

- 4/12/2010

I purchased kit #47 in 2004 and finally have built the kit this past week. I just wanted you to know that I found your instruction booklet to be one of the most informative and clearly instructive products I have ever seen. I'm an old hat of 65 years building experience and have never read easier instructions. A novice couldn't miss with your manual. The kit itself is a packaged extremely well and of excellent quality.

Thankyou for a most pleasurable building experience. Of all the quality "front of layout" structures I have built, this one will definitely be a show piece.
