Introduction
Wall, extra large by NOCH (item 34855) is one of their structured hard foam models, part of their PROFI range. While marketed for N scale, it is versatile and is only limited by scale by the imagination of the modeler.

Wall, extra large
NOCH's PROFI-plus N scale Steinmauer extra lang is a hard foam casting of a cut stone wall. It measures 15 1/2 inches (396 mm) by 3 inches (74 mm).

While this is rigid hard foam, it can be bent with heat. The foam is otherwise very tough yet very light, more so than resin or ceramic. It can be cut easily.

Scale
This wall is 206 feet long in N scale. In HO, it is 112 feet long. Larger scales can use this wall although the size of the stones/bricks will become unrealistically small.

Two photos demonstrate the size with a group of N scale people, and with an HO semi tractor.

Instructions
NOCH offers basic instructions printed on a label in the package, and a detailed series of still photos and a video at their website.

Conclusion
Wall, extra large by NOCH affords N-scalers a light, rigid, highly detailed wall. The versatility of this scenery product is increased by how easy it is to cut or bend.

This wall has no real drawback.

This long N scale wall is a excellent product to create stone walls. Recommended.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
