Pre-painted 1/80 size (HO) by Kobo NANA ROKUNI

Building size (including base): approx. W140xD80xH148mm (tank diameter 51mm)

Original (self-made full-scratch) work.
The prototype is the water tower at Gujo Hachiman Station on the Etchminan Line (the dimensions are based on a guess from a nearby person in the photo, so some parts may differ from the real thing that existed).
The spout is a popular movable type, also made by myself.
The axis is rotatable and the feed tube can be adjusted up and down (back and forth) to some extent.
Note: The building is screwed on from the back of the base plate and can be removed.

The prototype is a Japanese National Railways type water tank that was located at Gujo Hachiman Station on the Koshominan Line. The model was made by Ena-Rokuni, a workshop that focuses on water tanks and water towers.
This is a very interesting model. This model is made of brass and can be rotated 360 degrees, and the water tank can be adjusted up and down (back and forth) to some extent. How about recreating a water supply scene for your own steam locomotive?
Of course, the water tank itself is also made with care.
The tank sits on concentric circles on concrete legs that form a precise hexagon, with a dodecagonal roof on top. The precise geometry is a thing of beauty.

This is a full-scratch work, with fine details such as water level gauges, ladders and valves, and elegant weathering adding to the story.
The style of the work, which looks as if it has been carefully finished from a good quality kit, is the result of the craftsmanship of the model workshop "Nanarokuni", which makes its own jigs for each creation. We hope you enjoy this work of art from the masters of the Heisei era!
