Scale Brass Models for Model Train Layouts Scratch Built by Bruce Von Stetina

Bruce’s special love is building models in brass. These top quality scratch built models are made of all solder construction. They are built to last the life of your model railroad layout and go on to become cherished heirlooms. Brass structures are available either plain, or painted and weathered.

The models shown on this page are HO scale, but Bruce can also build custom models for S and O train layouts, as well as any of the larger scales.  Bruce works from plans if available, if not he drafts his own from old photographs. Unless otherwise noted, all models are sold.
 
If you wish to commission a scale model, please fill out the form on our Contact Page to request a price quote and time frame. As well as the scale and type of structure you’re interested in, please let us know if you have plans, photographs or drawings available to work from, or if you’ll need us to do some research or create a custom design.

Bruce has started a new series of video tutorials on YouTube showing the building of some of his brass models. He calls this series Building With Bruce. At this time he has tutorials of the Santa Fe Sand Tower and Fairbanks Morse 50 Ton Coaler.

We have also made videos of some of Bruce's models for YouTube. Look for the link to YouTube in the descriptions to the right of the models
