Does anybody know a source for N scale Japanese lanterns? I want to incorporate a garden in my NTRAK module, but I can't find any lanterns. There was one included in a Tomytec onsen kit, but that isn't enough. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks for the links, Bill. What I am really looking for are stone lanterns that would be found throughout a Japanese garden. I will keep looking.

Greenmax 2162 has some small Shrine items.  See the photo below. Unfortunately only available in small quantities.  http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10190747

 

Kabuto Models on Shapeways run by list member  tonibabelony has a type of Shrine  light  but not a lantern.

When toni gets less busy perfect thing to add to his shapeways shop! Actually something that the printing roughness would be nice for the stone texture and shape.

Oh, yea. I am such a fan of Japanese gardens I built a Northwest/Japanese garden in by back yard. Finding good lanterns is difficult. I think I should take some photos for Toni and beg really softly for help.

Couldn’t hurt, he’s been really busy of late and not aroundnthe Forum much. I don’t think the 3d printing biz gets him a lot or revenue, but he’s a great artist and loves this stuff and also uses it on his own stuff so hopefully it ends paying for his stuff!

 

luckily the lanterns are pretty simple.

 

i am surprised more has not been done of stuff like this. I would have expected Tomytec to do a set of toriis and lanterns by now, the garden set is pretty minimal.
