Noch has expanded its sun and beach-themed models in HO scale in time for the summer.
For layouts with a beach or river scene, German model landscaping products specialist Noch has added two water and beach-themed models.
First up is a boathouse, often located in the shore area of canals, rivers, lakes or on coastal locations. The HO scale model measures 9.2 cm x 7.3 cm, 5.3 cm high and features red-wood panelling and white doors and shutters standing on stilts in the water. The entrance is landside.
For a more seaside look, Noch have introduced a lifeguard tower, again in HO, measuring 5.6 cm x 4.5 cm, 5.3 cm high. The lifeguards’ stilt hut is painted in a typical maritime blue and has white shutters. For added fun, a sharp fin is also included.
