HO 1:87 Poseidon Canning Company Complex with Concrete Foundation
Set of 7 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. With the inclusion of the concrete loading dock/foundation piece this allows you to place your cannery set away from the water's edge if you don't have the water for a pier.
Another option would be to place the concrete foundation/loading dock out over your water scene using some of our stone or rock seawall pieces(sold separately) under it to create a stone jetty or pier.

#541 HO 1:87 Scale Poseidon Canning Company: The Main Building
The main building of this cannery complex is comprised of 4 wall 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.
