After 35 years of serving the S scale community, it is time to retire. We have enjoyed designing, manufacturing, and importing brass models that represented the best in S. Over the years we had the privilege of working with some of the best brass builders in Korea, with the last 22 years with Boo Rim Precision. SeHo Jang, owner of Boo Rim Precision, became a great partner and friend with us as we were able to build projects that had many, many versions, all slightly different, for our S scale customers.


River Raisin Models imported its first brass freight car in 1987, the Airslide Covered Hopper in two versions. Since then, we imported 21 different Steam Locomotives, 7 Diesel Engines in 18 versions, , 3 complete passenger trains, freight cars, cabooses, and many different brass freight and passenger trucks. All these projects were in S Scale and some projects included Hi-Rail versions. We will be closing River Raisin Models at the end of 2022. We will continue to sell our inventory thoughout the year. Our website will stay active at least through the end of 2022.


It has been a pleasure serving your S scale modeling needs!

River Raisin Models has accumulated a very nice library of books and research materials over the 35 years of importing brass models. We have decided to thin the collection a bit. We will be offering books that we used for the research for many of our past projects. Most of these books are in mint condition and many are out of print and hard to find. We tried to be as accurate about the condition of the books as stated on the lists. We will be updating the lists as books are sold and as we make more available from our library.
