RUSTY RAIL has created some new shacks for O scale - 1/48 modelers.
Hobo Shack # 1 RRS-O-08
I redid the shack for the O scale guys. The shack is hollow you assemble the four walls and has a removable roof. It also comes will a positional door, as you can see I left mine ajar. These shacks were made out of what ever wood and used building materials a guy could find. Not a lot of curb appeal but functional. I'm sure the insulation was old newspaper. As a bonus you get the shack detail to place anywhere you want around the shack. A metal stovepipe is also included. The castings are unpainted and the figure is not included. The shack measures 3 1/2" by 2 1/4" by 2" tall. This shack can be a little diorama by itself. Shack RRS-O-10
Here is a small shack for the O scale guys. This shack could be for a miners shack or loggers would be home in this shack. This is an easy to build model the shack is one piece and you just glue the two roof sections on the top and the stove pipe and done. Then ready for the paint shop. A lot of extra detail molded into the shack walls like the work beach and details. The kit also comes with 6 separate castings you can place anywhere around you shack check the picture below. The castings of course are not painted. The base and the figure are not included. The shack measuresRRBS-O-19

RRS-H-32 - Logging Camp cabin on skids
These cabins with the skids attached were easy to move to the next logging camp location. I did not mold the skids to the cabin so you can use them or not. Could be a nice flatcar load. The cabin will also come with 4 small castings you can see in the pictures. resin conversion kits for HO trucks
These should fit a a lot of different truck frames. Also Mike LooneyRRTK-H-01 - Log Truck with Log Load
has fitted the load to a Jordan Mack truck. As I match them to different frames I will let you know what will work. Or we can build them for you painted and weathered. More of these to come. Some fun stuff that will turn some heads.
Check out the chain molded onto the log load. Some minor assembly is required and of course the castings come unpainted. The casting measures 3" by 7/8' and 1 " tall. Rusty Rail
