We have been producing model railroad structure kits since 2002, starting with the release of Big Lou’s Grill. Since then we have strived to live up to that unique little kit, by offering original, uncommon designs. The kits feature  our own laser cut precision parts, and in-house metal cast detail parts, 3D printed parts; along with plastic architectural parts from Tichy and wood from Northeastern Scale Lumber. 

Fos Scale Models is owned and operated by Doug Foscale. Doug was born and raised in New York City and followed an art education in architecture and graphic design. Doug now lives in Connecticut with his wife Amy and their three horses, sheep, goats and the Fos Scale Models mascot and mini-donkey, Diesel.

The Fos Scale Models studio is located in South East Connecticut.  We often hold workshops to share our techniques of model building, weathering and detailing. Check back often for the next workshop.
