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 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.
