Ratio #524 HO Gauge Weighbridge and Hut
This model is from Ratio’s TrackSide series and is one of those models that will fit into an American themed layout with very little modification.
The model depicts a small stone building with a slate roof, and there are separate door and window castings. The instructions depict a fence and lamp, both of which are not included in this kit. A piece of fence from another kit could be added and lamp could either be omitted or found in a parts catalog.
As you can see from the kit instructions there are two pieces that are added to either side of roof. There is no material included for the front and back. I have added styrene strips to either ends to give the model a more uniform appearance.
This model will probably be placed at a salvage yard.
