Z Scale Blasted Rock Portal Set (3 Piece Set) ZTR-110
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 3-piece portal set includes two unique tunnel liners that sit flush to the rear of the portal and extend 2.5 ” beyond the portal face. We use natural rock casts to create these pieces and to have them join with minimal visible seams. The tunnel liners have a flat bottom and ends to form a simple butt joint with the rear of the portal.
We wanted to give this piece an older look but of course, many modern railroads still travel through portals just like this. If you’d like to run a double stack intermodal car through, once you attach the tunnel liners to the portal face just shim the entire piece up by .020″ or so. We suggest using a 2-part epoxy to attach these walls to the abutment
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.
