Car Ladders and Rungs

I've always been frustrated with plastic car ladders. Flash to clean off. Rungs that break when de-sprueing. Oversize rung diameters. These ladder stiles are photo-etched brass and are available in 4 rung spacings. The stiles are pierced for 0.012" wire grabs if you use Tichy grabs you may have to ream out the holes a tad, since Tichy uses 0.0125" wire for their grabs.

Compare our metal ladders on the left, to standard plastic model ladders on the right

The parts are easy to use. Cut the stiles from the fret and either using a tool like "Etch-Mate" or a steel ruler and a single edge razor blade, fold the stiles into an angle. Use either commercial straight grabs or form your own for the rungs. Now you can easily use 0.010" or 0.008" wire if you desire for a more scale appearance. Cut the legs of the grab very short and insert in the holes. Secure with CA or solder. Small tabs of styrene inside the angle can be used to create standoffs.

Each fret contains enough parts for one car.

HO Scale Etched Ladder Rungs
Our research indicates that car ladders came in a variety of widths, depending upon manufacturer and end user. As a result we are pleased to offer this selection of ladder rung widths which should cover off most needs. The fret includes enough rungs to build 4 ladders and have a goodly amount of spares. Extra long legs are also included for those who wish to use the legs as pins to further secure the ladders to the car sides and ends.
