KIT NO. 616 HO


A challanging craft-style kit you can put together in a few enjoyable evenings. Features board-by-board construction with laser-cut wood and our white metal detail castings.


THE MINE HEADFRAME


Kit No. 616, The Mine Headframe.

Timber headframes like this were built over vertical shafts. A steam (electric or originally beast of burden) powered drum hoist and skip (like our kit No. 609, available separately) would lower the men and equipment down hundreds, if not thousands of feet, and pull the rich ores (and waste tailings) back up to the surface.

Our model features plenty of interesting board-by-board construction supported by full-sized templates and step-by-step instructions. Includes a large pile of our original white metal detail castings (many more than shown) and a separate hoist house.

Combine it with our other mining kit, No. 615 The Ore Tipple or leave it stand alone. It's packed with enough detail to satisfy the nittiest of pickers and keep a craftsman modeler busy for several very pleasurable evenings of satisfying construction!
