HO 1:87 Poseidon Canning Company Complex
Set of 6 Kits
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.
