Vintage Yankee lobster traps were handmade of wood and weathered by actual sun and sea water. This was a popular trap for use by lobstermen in and around the U.S. east coast especially around the state of Maine.
Imagine your layout with a dozen of these super accurately designed scale model traps piled around outside your fisherman's wharf model, waiting to be loaded into a boat to bring in a a haul of genuine Maine lobster.
Other items shown in the photos are for size comparison and are not included.
While we'd love to be able to use sun and sea-weathered wood in creating our models, due to the extremely small size of these models, we instead use plastic and lasers. These models are ready to run as-is or detail paint as desired with common hobby paints.
For protection during transport, these may arrive attached to a plastic support structure. Please carefully break the support structure free by hand, maintaining a light touch so as not to fracture the cages.
Scale model is for display and operating model railroad load / modelling and is not a child's toy. EXTREMELY FRAGILE.
For use by railroad modelers age 14 years minimum.
