This kit has a foot print of 286mm x 88mm x 60mm high. Like all of our kits this has our tab locking system. The Macksville station building is a type 12, Ac4 prefabricated concrete slab building. Standard designs of precast concrete drop slab panel station buildings were introduced from 1919- 1932 in regional locations. The standard designs range from the Ac1 which was a simple waiting room, through to larger station buildings such as the Ac5 which featured five rooms in a U-shape form with front verandah The Macksville station building is linear in design and plans dating c.1919 show the building as internally comprising of a general waiting room, station master’s office, storeroom, and ladies waiting room and lavatory. The station building includes a timber platform awning, and was flanked by two water tanks with timber shelters. The original station precinct additionally included a station master’s residence and pig trucking yards. As a rare and good example of a type 12, Ac4 station design, in excellent condition and good integrity, the Macksville station building has research potential for this type of railway building as well as the development of the NSW railways generally. There were originally 142 ‘type 1’2 concrete drop slab buildings planned throughout NSW with only a few extant today, other examples include Ivanhoe, Robertson, Broken Hill. All you need to do this work out what colour scheme you want and paint it before glueing. Props in the happy snaps don’t come with the kit.
