Former Fukuchiyama Line Sasayamaguchi Station Type Water Tower : Kobo-Nanarokuni Finished product 1:80(HO) 1034
Building size (including base 3t): approx. W60xD80xH100mm (tank diameter approx. 49mm)
Original (self-made full-scratch) work.
The prototype is the water tower of the old Fukuchiyama line Shinoyamaguchi station (I made it based on the 1/150 drawing of the model magazine, but there are many unknown points, so I made it look like that by guessing. It seems that the area around the water tower has been renovated several times, so the model is arranged a little. (The details and paint colours may differ from the real thing.)
Note: 1 LED electric light is already incorporated in the interior. The wiring (with connector) comes out from the bottom of the work, and it is lit by putting 3-12V DC (CRD control). The building is screwed from the back side of the base plate and can be removed.
Information edit: Sakatsu Gallery
A model of a water tower on a brick platform by Ena Rokuni, a workshop dedicated to water tanks and water towers.
The prototype is a water tower at Shinoyamaguchi station on the Fukuchiyama line, which still retains the appearance of the Hanzuru railway era.
It has a stylish Meiji-era brick base and a flat, round tank.
The detailing of the water gauge, valves and rivets on the tank is superb as always, and the finish is so neat that it is hard to believe that it was handmade from scratch.
The reason for this price is that the model workshop "Nanarokuni" even made their own jigs to make the production more efficient. The price is unbeatable, to say the least!
