Ocational Updates


April 25, 2023

After enduring almost 2 weeks of no internet service (waiting on someone to show up and fix things) my neighborhood suffered a minor power outage that must have included a power surge.... Result?  Dead computer!  No amount of work can revive it so the hard drive has gone off to a data retrival company in CA.  I'm in MO.

Net result?  I'm building a new computer to run the laser cutter and create the files I use for 3D printing.  For you it means that if you have an order outstanding with me I am unable to ship until the new computer is up and running.  Hopefully within a day or two.

BUT!  I will fill all outstanding orders!

An Elevated Watch Box (HO 1064) and a Ground Watch Box (HO 1065) are amoung the newest additions to the catalog.  3D printed these are a nice detail to add to your City or town road crossings.  In large cities these boxe were some times used in multiples at each crossing.  Take a look.

I've added several new Kits/parts to the site.  These are 3D printer in house.  For smaller structures this seems the best way to go.  No fiddling with small hard to glue parts.  In some cases as with the double privy assembly of the privacy screens by the doors was just pain difficult and frustrating!

Hi and welcome a NEW LOOK for Lake Junction Models LLC's web site.  And about time too as this is the first update in a number of years.  I won't bore you with how after a fire that destroyed my original shop I found myself locked out of the old web site and unable to update it.  Hopefully there will not be a repeat!

A number of new laser kits have been added and more are on the way.  While the mainstay of my business has always been laser cutting with the arrival of the 3D printing I have expanded my line of parts and kits.

To give you a little background.  I've have been a model railroader since the early 1950's, first with Lionel and then HO scale before dabbling in N scale and O scale traction. I grew up watching the parade of trains on Missouri Pacific's main line from St. Louis to Kansas City which ran behind our house.  St. Louis still had a number of streetcar lines in service which kindled a life long love of all things traction.  After graduating high school, I went to college, spent three years in the army (1966 to 1969) and worked nine years at the National Museum of Transport in St. Louis County in charge of the restoration of exhibits.  I worked over 20 years in the commercial model building industry, most of it designing model railroad kits before retiring and  started this company to produce kits that interested me and custom work for others.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments or some special need that you have.  I'm always open to new ideas and the options of others.

As you have probably noticed already, I'm not a web designer. Please let me know if you run into any problems on this site and I'll try to correct them as fast as I can.  Between designing, producing assembling sample models, running equipment and trying to get the occasional advertisement out I'm stretched pretty thin.

I'll write a few notes here from time to time either on some aspect of building and decorating kits or something that just crosses my mind. The new entries will be at the top and others descending by date.
