Welcome to Dead Horse Bay! During the nineteenth century, the desolate bay, far from the cities and towns was used as a dumping ground for animal carcasses and rubbish. Eventually much of it was filled, making way for industry.
Today, the real Dead Horse Bay exists in Brooklyn, NY and did serve the purpose of the cities garbage disposal site, including many animals - mainly horses, which were in great number when they were the sole source of transportation. It's beaches today can be scoured for 200 year old relics, constantly emerging from the eroded beach head.
This years kit was inspired, in name, by the real locale in Brooklyn. It provides us with another waterfront scene that we're always happy to model. But, if your not modeling waterfront, it can be easily be made to fit a land locked or river scene, just leave out the pilings on the smaller structures and create an entirely new scene of your own. And though we modeled it with a small hill, you can easily model it on the flat.
The kit features the main structure, Terrien Marine and second, attached structure Horvath Refrigertion as well as a triple storefront structure including Western Union, a luncheonette and a tobacco/news shop. The kit also features a boiler house for Terrien Marine with a covered coal bin. Additionally there are three shacks that sit on pilings overhanging the waters edge, and one smaller shack. Altogether, seven structures.
The kit features laser cut wood walls, plastic and laser cut doors and windows, metal cast detail parts, color signage, rolled and corrugated roofing, shingles and detailed templates and assembly instructions.
