Red Hook Wharf - HO Scale Limited Run Kit

$329.00
SORRY THIS KIT IS SOLD OUT

Welcome to Red Hook Wharf, a bustling waterfront pier, with the smell of fresh and not so fresh fish in the air. Fog horns and steam whistles echo across the harbor as hardworking stevedores haul, pull and hoist cargo and materials. With limited room, each business vies for dock space sharing tracks and cranes.

For our tenth anniversary we had to go above and beyond our usual Annual Limited Run Kit release - we’ve put together our largest and most value filled kit yet. A wharf had been on our drawing board for some time, but every version came up short. It was missing something important - it had to be dramatic. The only way to do it right was to make it over two feet long! And what was originally a single business, evolved into eight separate structures and business. This allowed for variation in building type, function and materials.

The only drawback in making a very large kit is the cost to you - like an overfed cow, by the time the diorama was finished, it came in at a hefty $450 plus per kit...so, the conclusion was that we still wanted modelers to have this kit and since it’s our tenth anniversary and we sincerely appreciate all of your patronage for the last decade we kept the price as low as possible, at $329 , just four dollars more than last years Salt Neck Harbor kit - that comes to about $41 per structure; compare it to all of this years fall structure kit releases.
