This superb kit is modelled on the overall roof at Ashburton, Devon. Designed for use with Station Building kit (Ref 204), it will enable you to build a GWR station quickly and easily. Although a specific prototype, the design is typical of many other regions including some tropical countries where it was intended to shelter passengers from the sun as well as rain. Supplied with some pre-coloured parts although painting and/or weathering can add realism; glue is required to complete this model. Footprint: 153mm x 82mm

Ratio Scale Models was started in 1950 by Jack and Dev Webster, producing fine coach kits made from sheet plywood pressings in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire. They commenced manufacturing plastic kits in 1959 and the name was changed to Ratio Plastic Models. The factory was moved to Goring-on-Thames in 1961, and to Sturminster Newton in 1972. As the range continued to grow, they moved to larger premises in Buckfastleigh in 1986. Ratio was sold to PECO in 1996; production now takes place at a new factory in Buckfastleigh, along with the Wills and Parkside ranges.
