Product Description
  • Make your model road course or race track look like the real thing.
  • Most accurate 1/32 scale replica of Armco guardrail available.
  • Design based on extensive research in the field and online.
  • Guardrail looks great and is effective at keeping cars corralled.
  • Design is typical of guardrails installed on secondary roads in U.S. from 1940 to 2000, W-beam steel guardrail mounted on wooden posts. 
  • At 1/32 scale, posts are 28"- 29” tall. Rail is 12” wide.
  • Includes 8 pieces, each with 12" of rail connected to four posts.
  • Pieces are easily glued together into multiples of 12”. Four pieces can be connected to make one smooth flexible rail 48” long, (128’ at 1/32 scale).
  • Tapered pin is 3/8" long and molded to bottom of post for easy installation. Can be cut off if not needed.
  • Requires one pair of Armco Stubby Nose Ends on Wooden Posts, (sold separately) for finished look which increases total length of rail by about 3.75".
  • Armco Rail as well as Stubby Nose Ends and Bullnose Ends on round wooden posts available upon request. 

Installation Instruction
  1. Separate 8 pieces from sprue using sharp hobby knife or razor saw. (Do not remove posts from the rails.)
  2. Scrape excess nylon powder off of posts on faces where they were connected.
  3. To put a permanent twist or bend in a rail, heat the rail in very hot water. Quickly tape it to an object with the desired contour. When cool, remove it from object.
  4. Using cyanoacrylate (commonly sold under trade names such as "Super Glue" and "Krazy Glue"), join pieces of rail together. Apply glue to ends of both rails and to tab containing a small hole. Be sure to insert short pin into small hole in tab to ensure proper alignment and a secure connection.
  5. Paint or dye the  pieces as desired.
  6. Drill holes where you want the posts located in your layout. These should be spaced about 3” (76.2mm) apart, and oriented vertically. Make the diameter of these holes a little larger than the diameter of the pin to accommodate any misalignment of the holes.
  7. Now glue posts, with attached rail, into holes in your layout.
