Armorama

Tobias Locomotive Works of Covington, KY, USA produces a resin set of HO (1/87 scale) building interiors. While slightly smaller than 1/72 - 1/76, they create valuable interior detail for depots, hangers, ruined or whole building and workshop vehicles. Some of these pieces can even make useful interior items for the inside of larger scale aircraft.

Crisply cast in bubble free gray resin, the pieces break neatly off the thin common backing.

30 items include

11 shelves of books, manuals, boxes

5 racks of tools and containers

4 workbenches with tools and equipment

5 desks

5 counters with merchandise and registers

All of these items can enrich a diorama either as background filler, or as the main pieces inside structures. Enjoy these resin gems.
SUMMARY
Diorama builders in 1/35 have many items to choose from for buildings. The smaller scales have less to choose from unless one samples model railroad products. These items can enhance dioramas set in practically any time period and nation.
