The Cannery Main Building
A cannery is a perfect way to transition from land to sea. This cannery complex is the ideal place for your fisherman to dock his boat after a successful trip. After offloading his catch, the cannery processes the fish or other seafood into both a locally marketable product as well as canned goods to be transported via train or truck to markets far and wide.
The main building of this cannery complex is comprised of 4 wall sections and 2 roof sections cast in resin. It represents a board and batten building with a corrugated roof. Nail holes and wood grain are all cast in place. What sets this kit apart is that the ends of the side walls are engineered to become the trim for the end walls leaving an almost invisible seam where the parts meet. This is a truly fast and easy build giving you a scratch built looking building that literally goes together in an hour or two instead of days or even weeks and is easily painted and weathered to your liking. Window and door castings as well as laser cut window glazing by Tichy Train Group are included. The measurements are approximately 8 inches long and 4 inches wide and 7.5 inches tall at the peak.
The resin is an easily modified material that you can cut, drill or reconfigure to accommodate many different scene ideas you might have. Truly, "The Cannery" is just a starting place for this versatile kit. A factory, warehouse, or brewery are other ideal uses for this building as well as mixing and matching other parts of the "Cannery Complex" to create any number of industrial applications. In the words of one customer:
"I was surprised and very pleased to see your email for The Cannery -- even though I'm not into fishing. I saw something else: an ore processing mill. And my layout is mining themed. I've been putting off building my mill for years. I have all the lumber, but scratch-building it would take months. But using your kits, I can do it in just weeks, by using two "Cannery" buildings, with the "Tower" between them in the middle, add the "Office" on one end and the "Water Tower", a slanting flat roof and extend the cannery side walls up the hillside, to make a convincing mill. I'll be ordering mine soon. Thanks for a great idea!"
Thank you for the great idea Jerry!
