Z Trains Z Scale Aged Concrete Bridge Abutments ZTR-102
Z Trains cast accessories come in their natural gray gypsum color. We’ve included painted and weathered version images here to represent suggested color schemes.
This aged concrete abutment set has put in lots of work over the years and will soon need to be repaired or replaced. In the meantime, it would make a great addition to your layout or diorama as a working abutment or as an abandoned piece to add history to your scene.
We began by laying scale accurate forming boards over this classic abutment design. Then came time for aging in the way of cracks, erosion and lots of exposure to the elements! Each abutment in this set has its own unique aged pattern and patched areas to add to the overall realism.
Originally designed for the Micron Art’s Deck Box Girder bridge, when used with a different bridge you may need to add a styrene or wood shim to match your track height.
Our castings come in their natural gray color. These pieces are cast using a high strength modified gypsum and then oven cured for maximum strength. We suggest applying a light coat of flat white spray primer to act as a sealing coat to your model. By applying a light coat of primer before you add your colors and weathering, you ensure yourself an even and stable color “canvas” for your paint, washed and weathering.
