    Default Electric meter boxes?

    Anybody out there ever come across N scale electric meter boxes like you would find on houses, etc (via Shapeways or otherwise)? EG -



    Every building I make needs one and they're a pain to scratchbuild (I usually wind up making them too big) so it would be nice to have something prefab.







    Thanks!

    Thanks, Moose. Those pewter ones from Bob look a little skeevy, but I think I could do something with the Model Tech ones.

    I kinda like making them from scratch. It's a satisfying little bodge from some scrap bits and sprues laying around the workbench.

    Showcase Miniatures makes some nice cast metal meters. Each pack comes with 6 meters and 6 window a/c units.
