American Model Builders O Glenwood No. 2 Oil Derrick Laser-Cut Wood Kit



Regular price $169.95 Sale price $135.95

The Oil Derrick kit is based on an article written by George Allen in the September 1952 issue of Model Railroader. The construction style of this Derrick with its wood framing dates from the late 1880s and was in use in areas of the country where lumber was still plentiful as late as the 1950s. Derricks such as this one could be found almost anywhere that oil was commercially produced in the United States: from California’s central valley to Oklahoma and Texas, and even up into central Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

Standing over 27 inches tall, the Glenwood No. 2 Oil Derrick will look impressive on any O gauge layout. The kit features 100% laser-cut materials, Tab and Slot design for ease of assembly, and Peel & Stick doors, windows, trim, and decking. The kit includes a platform with stairs, tower with Quadrupleboard, Crow’s Nest, and ladders, hoist house and storage shed, and resin pipe and well cap. The Derrick itself may be finished as either a wood or a more modern steel tower. When assembled, the entire complex measures 9.75” long x 8.25” wide x 27.5” high.
