You are purchasing an O Scale baluster kit fabricated by Todd Architectural Models & Layouts. The posts are 5'-0" tall in O Scale. The kit provides the modeler with three different lengths of precut baluster and associated pieces to accomodate a multitude of different assemblies. Assembly is easy!
THE KIT INCLUDES:
Four (4) each .060” laser scored and cut baluster pieces that create 7-1/2” (30’), 3-3/4” (15’) and 1-7/8” (7.5’) center-to-center sections when combined with the included posts;
3/8” x 3/8” acrylic posts;
040 “x 156” styrene strip to build out the bottom rung (both sides);
040” x 125” styrene strip to build out the top rail;
030” laser cut decorative and connector post panels w/ adhesive transfer tape.
This kit is best assembled using Plastic Weld by Plastruct, Same Stuff by Micro-Mark, Testors Plastic Liquid Cement or appropriate equal liquid solvent intended for use with acrylic plastic and styrene.
The decorative and connector post panels are designed to peal & stick to the acrylic posts, justified to the bottom. The resulting assemblies can create a combination of end, in-line or 90 degree turn posts.
The laser cut baluster pieces have scoring on one side. For best results if cutting to length for a specific application, use a hobby mitre box and fine tooth razor saw. Lightly sand the top of each post to remove saw marks- 180 or 220 grit. Use plastic solvent to adhere the styrene strips to the bottom rung (both sides) and top rail. Orient the assembled pieces with the scoring outward/ toward to the viewer for best effect.
The stock number is BALUSTER-O.
