Description

This listing is for a pre-made scale model three-rail, two-post fence, stained with Minwax Dark Walnut (2716) and weathered. This fence is in scale for most Breyer Stablemates and 1 gauge model trains. (The horses, bases, and other fences are not included.)

This was my first attempt at a fence using dowel instead of posts… and it turned out a lot more fragile than my normal fences. If I try it again, I will most likely flatten the dowels slightly where they’re glued to the boards. I carved the rails to look like there are multiple boards involved, but each rail is one solid piece. The nails are simple impressions in the wood and there is no silver detailing on them.

I like the way the board carving and nails turned out, so I’m going to give it a try on a ‘normal’ fence next!

This fence is designed to work with my 3×5 bases with Template A post holes. Technically, you can use a Template A fence in a Template D base (since a D is just two A’s stuck together) but it will look silly, as you can see in the last photo. I have built jigs and other tools that allow me to make sure all fences are identical enough to be interchangeable.

I have a bunch of the Breyer Stablemate molds so if there is a specific model you would like to see the fence with, drop me a line and I’ll be happy to provide photos. I also do custom orders, if you are interested!

Actual Size

This fence is 5 inches long and 2 inches tall with 3 inches between the metal posts. It’s made from basswood and birch using 3/16 inch square birch dowels for the posts and 3/16 inch wide and 1/16 inch thick basswood planks for the rails. The top to the top rail is 1 3/4 inches, the spacing between the rails is 3/8, and the height to the bottom of the bottom rail is 5/16.

Scale Size

In 1:32 scale (Breyer Stablemate, 1 gauge), this fence is 5 feet 4 inches high and there are 8 feet between the posts. The posts are 6 inches in diameter and the rails are 8 x 2. The top of the top rail is 4 feet 8 inches high and the spacing between the rails is 1 foot. The spacing from the ground to the bottom of the bottom rail is 10 inches.

Construction & Details

The fence is sanded, assembled with wood glue, and stained. It has been coated with matte varnish so you can wipe it with a damp cloth, but it can’t soak in water. The metal pegs are made from paperclips that have been cut and sanded, but are still quite poke-y because of the narrow diameter.

It’s more delicate than my other fences, so needs to be handled carefully and is not intended for children. This fence is meant for adults (or young adults) who are using it for a display or Photo Show setup.

This fence will not stand on its own. It needs something you can stick the wire peg legs into, like floral foam or one of my awesome grass bases! If you would prefer the fence to come without metal posts, just let me know.
