KANAMODEL EXPRESS kits are designed in the same way as our regular kits but are of smaller buildings. All include laser cut Mt Albert Scale Lumber siding, colour coded scale stripwood, cast windows and doors, etc., plus all feature our "WORKING WITH WOOD" pamphlet. Paint, cement and an X-acto knife are all that is needed to construct these realistic kits. With our complete instructions including photographs they are easy enough to build for the absolute beginner, but realistic enough for the advanced modeller, and they are ideal for adding to larger industrial scenes. They are at your dealers in the yellow pegboard package. Photos are of the actual models.

THE COMPANY HOUSE
Company houses were first used to keep the work force close to the site so they would not wind up in the town lock-up after a night in the local saloon. Usually there were several types of houses - one for married men with no children, another for married couples with children, a more elaborate one for foremen, etc. The model we have chosen was one used for married couples with no family and was in use into the 1960's in Fraser Mills, British Columbia. They were first built by the Canada Western Lumber Company in the late 1800's. Our model has the usual EXPRESS features but also has a simulated cast concrete base, cast shingle roof, molded windows, doors, etc. The footprint is 3" x 4"

Their size was such that they could be easily lifted by crane and transported by flat car the next construction site.
