Whether you use these N scale stands to represent the sale of newspapers, flowers or food, they work in equally as well in small towns and big cities. This is a three part set featuring 1 large, Victorian-style newsstand based on a Manhattan prototype, 1 smaller run-down newsstand based on a Harlem prototype (designed to fit against a wall) and 1 double-seat bootblack (shoeshine) stand based on vintage blueprints. Models arrive as unpainted, semi-transparent plastic and are connected via a sprue. Simply cut the parts from the sprue, clean them following our Special Product Care instructions, paint and weather. IMPORTANT: Carefully cut the sprues off of the models using a very sharp (new) hobby knife on a hard, solid surface -- do not attempt to cut sprues on a flexible surface or with no support at all. Give the model walls connected to the sprue you're cutting as much support as possible to prevent flexing, which can lead to cracking.
