88-SAFE UNIVERSAL SUPER-DETAIL HO Frogs and Frog Kits Purchse Notes:

"88 Safe SUPER DETAIL" UNIVERSAL HO FROG KITS AND ASSEMBLED FROGS now come  with scale sized Bolt head and Washer strips These are supplied as separate add-on items which allow the modeler to optionally just glue them on and make the most completely and accurately HO super detailed frogs available.

Note the new "Self-Guarding" frogs are "Craftsman Kits" and require strong soldering/metalwork-assembly skills to add the side detail/guard strips. Recommended assembly tool for the self-guarding frogs is a resistance soldering unit with a "tweezers" attachment.
Our initial pre-building charge for the self guarding frog is $9.95.

ABSOLUTELY WARRANTED AND FULLY COMPLIANT WITH NMRA STANDARDS FOR ALL HO WHEELSETS! And, IN ADDITION, the special and unique "88 SAFE UNIVERSAL" design prevents the common "bumping at the frog" of HO non NMRA compliant code 88 wheels (aka "semi-scale" wheels). "88 SAFE UNIVERSAL FROGS safely and smoothly prevent code 88 wheels from dropping even partly down into the open frog throat.

"88-SAFE" UNIVERSAL SUPER DETAILED FROG KITS are chemically milled from solid Nickel Silver to exacting accuracy and more prototypical realism.

Supplied in easy to assemble kit form, or pre-built for $4.95 extra. ($9.95 extra for the Self-Guarding frogs). Note the pre-built option does not include mounting the detail strips. Those are always supplied unmounted
.
