New Manufacturer of Z scale structures!
- Hi Gang,
I am pleased to announce the arrival of a new source of Z scale structures
at GREAT prices (in Canadian dollars yet)!
I had a nice exchange of emails with Mr. Duncan Gregson, the president of
Microfigs. I made a couple of suggestions for Z scale industrial
structures. I could have saved the electrons...they are planning to release
an impressive selection of 1/285 and, in the short term, 1/220 resin
structures. I'll let Mr. Gregson fill you in himself:
"...You'll be happy to know that we are all on the same line of thought
here, and we have models of all those you suggested currently under
construction. Our most recent industrial
releases will include a textile mill, a public works building, a
large factory complex (production building, warehouse, and
boiler/power house). In time for Xmas, we also plan on releasing a tank
factory (which could also be used as an automotive factory), an oil refinery
and various sizes of storage
tanks, a large power plant, and our most impressive model, a
steel mill complex (blast furnaces, rolling mill, and distribution
These are just the beginning. There is a strong possibility that Microfigs
will produce Z scale rolling stock in 2001!!!
I encourage you to contact Mr. Gregson with your suggestions for structures
and to encourage their Z scale efforts.
I just ordered their 8 silo grain elevator and I can't wait to see the new
line. I may have to add a 4th suitcase to the Val Ease Central RR to
accommodate them. A full review of the elevator will be forthcoming in
about a week.
Microfigs will fill a lot of Xmas stockings and make many Z scalers very
happy. So check out their web site:
goto "Store" then "industrial structures".
