Description

This listing is for a pre-made scale model three-rail fence, painted white. This fence is in scale for larger Micro Mini or Bantam scale artists resins/pewters, and S scale model trains. (The horses, bases, and other fences are not included.)

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. I have built jigs and other tools that allow me to make sure all fences are identical enough to be interchangeable.

I’ve shown the listing with several models so you can get a feel for the size. 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! (The smaller scale micros and most Breyer Mini Whinnies work with the 1:64 scale fences.)

Actual Size

This fence is 5 inches long and 1 1/4 inches tall with 3 inches between the posts. It’s made from basswood using 1/8 inch square dowels for the posts and 1/8 inch wide and 1/16 inch thick planks for the rails.

The top to the top rail is 1 1/4 inches, the spacing between the rails is 1/4, and the height to the bottom of the bottom rail is 5/16.

Scale Size

In 1:54 scale (Maggie’s Micros) this would be 5 feet 8 inches high and there are 13 feet 6 inches between the posts. The posts are 7 x 7 and the rails are 7 x 4. The top of the top rail is 5 feet 8 inches high and the spacing between the rails is 1 foot 2 inches. The spacing from the ground to the bottom of the bottom rail is 1 foot 5 inches.

In 1:48 scale (Large Micro Minis, O scale) this would be 5 feet high and there are 12 feet between the posts. The posts are 6 x 6 and the rails are 6 x 3. The top of the top rail is 5 feet high and the spacing between the rails is 1 foot. The spacing from the ground to the bottom of the bottom rail is 1 foot 3 inches, so right a little above the suggested max for containing foals.

Construction & Details

The fence was sanded, assembled with wood glue, and painted with acrylics. It’s 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 pins that have been cut and sanded, but are still quite poke-y because of the narrow diameter. It’s relatively sturdy, so it should hold up to basic wear and tear, but 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 posts, just add a note to the order letting me know.
