Re: Oriental Models Inc


Hello friends,
Northernscalemodels has a bunch of those PS-0 box cars from AWE and sells them VERY cheaply (for a brass car):
(I have one, too, but of course there is some work necessary. Better trucks, and the doors are poorly done, unfortunately.)
BTW, the abbreviation "OMI" never was used in connection with ORIENTAL LIMITED but ALWAYS with OVERLAND MODELS.
Many greetings
Modeling the early post-war years up to about 1953

Anthony Wenzel

After Oriental he started a little brass importer called AWE - Anthony Wenzel Enterprises - using stolen plans
from the Shoreham Shops (around the time when Samhongsa let Lionel use someone else's plans which led to
a major lawsuit by MTH that put Sam out of business). AWE did import a nice early welded Pullman box car.

IIRC (debatable) the owner of OMI was T Wenzel.  T was for Tony or Tom, I can’t remember which, though I think Tony.


Does anyone have contact information for him?
