View Full Version : New N scale structure: Town or city park bandstand

4th Jun 2012, 09:38 PM
American Archetype is pleased to announce the release of the Grande Bandstand structure kit now available in N Scale.

The model is based on the combination of several prototypes, including bandstands in New Orleans, LA; Boston, MA; Providence, RI; and Pawtucket, RI. Its general style follows bandstands that were designed in the early 1900s – most of which are still in use today. Used to enhance the acoustics of a live band performance and protect band members from weather conditions, bandstands like this can be found all around the world in city parks or other public gathering places.

The bandstand is available in two variations – with or without railings and stairs. Each kit is produced as an on-demand rapid prototype as one part. No assembly is required. Kit instruction sheet with suggested paint colors is available for download from the American Archetype web site.

American Archetype’s Grande Bandstand, with railings and stairs sells for $40.00. Bandstand, without railings and stairs sells for $34.00. For more information, visit http://www.americanarchetypemodels.com.

I'm very impressed with the delicacy of this little jem. You'd want this up close so you can see all the detail for sure. Makes me wish I had a place for this one.

Beautiful structure. Makes me wish that I also had a bigger park.

Excellent design! Round staircase is beautful! An attempt at scratch building a round one would be difficult, so I made mine (in the download section) hexagonal: http://www.nscale.net/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=14
