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 after 1990, W-beam steel guardrail mounted on steel I-beam posts instead of wooden posts.
At 1/32 scale, each I-beam post is 29” tall. Rail is 12” wide.
Includes 4 pieces, each with 6" of rail connected to two I-beam posts.
Pieces are easily glued together into multiples of 6”. Four pieces can be connected to make one smooth flexible rail 24” long, (64’ 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 I-beam 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 square, or round posts available upon request.
Separate 4 pieces from sprue using sharp knife, razor saw, or hacksaw blade. (Do not remove posts from the rails.)
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.
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.
Paint the pieces as desired.
Drill holes in the baseboard of your track, for attaching the posts to the baseboard. These should be spaced 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.
Now glue posts, with attached rail, into holes in your baseboard.
