MODULAR INDUSTRIAL BUILDING KIT SYSTEM (For the actual products - move to the bottom of this page and then click on page '2' or the '>' arrow)
The industrial unit building is just about as common a structure as you will find all around the world! And their appearance alongside the railway means that they will always look right as part of the railway modellers' layout. This exciting new modular system from WILLS lets the modeller add-on or adapt the base kit with extensions and frontages to accurately recreate a 21st century scene - bringing greater realism to any modern layout!
With a number of "blind" cuts inside the walls of the kit the modeller selects where to place the doors, windows and shutters. Optional extra accessories give further variations including loading bays, a glazed supermarket frontage and an out-of-town retail unit frontage, all typical of the type of structure now seen alongside the modern railway.
Left: the blind cuts inside the walls Right: base built as a stand-alone building
The base kit can be constructed as a low relief, or stand-alone building, as illustrated above. The real limitation is the modellers' imagination, and a combination of these kits can create such structures as loco maintenance depots, bus stations, warehouses, distribution centres...the list goes on!
Footprint: Low Relief 336 x 84mm. Stand-alone 168 x 168mm
Extra depth can be given to the base kit with the use of the Extension kit (SSM315), either in low-relief or stand-alone format, creating a larger, deeper building if required.
SSM310 Supermarket frontage SSM311 Out-of-town store frontage
The supermarket frontage kit represents the familiar glazed entrance found on so many of these structures, and includes a ATM/cash machine which can be fitted into an aperture cut into the wall. The out-of-town store front will be recognised by everyone, the ubiquitous structure being found in many retail parks.
All these kits are now in stock, supplied in singles.
