Blair Line BLS191 Tom's Corn Crib HO Scale
Tom's Corn Crib is featured in the June 2005 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman as a scratchbuilding project.
Tom's Corn Crib kit features:
Corn cribs are used for storing shucked ears of corn. The slat sides allows for the circulation of air so the corn will dry and not spoil. The dried corn on the cob was fed whole or shelled and used as animal feed. Corn cribs were found on just about any farm that raised it's own corn and livestock.
The prototype for this kit was found near Jarbalo, Kansas by Tom Stolte. This eight sided corn crib is a little unusual, but makes for a fantastic model.
Kit features laser-cut concrete floor, wood slat walls and framing, flashing, hinges and signs. Also includes plywood roofing with laser etched three tab shingles. Laser cut base with locating holes for each wall make this kit a snap to put together. Adhesive backing on some of the parts for fast and easy assembly.
HO scale kit dimensions: 2.25" diameter x 2.38" tall.
