Welcome to the Lonestar Models web site. We produce a line of the highest quality 1/87 (HO) scale vehicles, trailers, and accessories available today for the experienced modeler. Our goal is to provide you, the model builder, with the absolute best quality product you can buy to replicate vehicle modeling in 1/87 scale.

Our products are scaled from original builders' drawings and our kits include some of the most intricate injection molded parts available in the hobby today. Our leading edge kits have introduced to 1/87 vehicle modelers concepts such as photo-etched stainless steel panel inserts combined with a plastic body and utilizing laser cut wood material to represent the wood decking of the actual prototype where appropriate.

Our inaugural product, the Barrett livestock trailer kit, introduced our unique combination of plastic body molding with stainless steel side panel inserts that set the 1/87 scale vehicle modeling world on end! Since then, we've continued our pioneering products by introducing the Trailmobile 40' flatbed trailer utilizing a laser cut wood deck, our lumber delivery truck, the exceptionally detailed Wilson grain trailer, and our ever expanding line of truck and trailer accessories.

You'll find our complete current products listed in our Product Catalog section of our web site.

Note: The Herpa Ford L9000 truck used in our kits is a trademarked product produced for Ford licensee Promotex
