N Scale Pallets - What a Great Find

I have been interested in finding some details to go with my GHQ forklift kits, and did some searching for a nice N scale pallet.  I found a source from and based on the photos decided that their model appeared to be the most accurate replica, and bought a couple of kits.  The kit comes with enough material to make 45 pallets, or 90 skids, in 3 different sizes (15 of each pallet or 30 of each skid).  The instructions are well written and easy to follow, and I was able to make a set of pallets in a short time.  I used a straight razor blade to do the cutting which worked well for me.  What I like most about this model is that it is a true replica of a pallet, with top and lower decking, and the 3 stringers tying them together.  Although it does take a steady hand and some time to assemble them, they look much better than a one piece version or molding, in my opinion.  If you are looking for a great n scale pallet, check these out, I don't think you will be disappointed.

As far as my forklift project goes, I still have some work before they are complete.  Now that I have some pallets built, I can attach the remaining forks at a width that will slide into the pallets.


  1. About those forklifts. Where they purchased or handcrafted by you? They look great.

  2. The forklifts are a kit made by GHQ. You should be able to find them at hobby stores for under $10 each. I posted some other photos on my blog here in various stages of assembly and painting. It is a fairly easy kit, as there are only a couple pieces to assemble.

  3. I just picked up some of these. Thanks for finding them! Now off to get some of the GHQ forklifts.

    1. Glad to hear that you ordered some. I was very pleased with mine. Let me know how it goes in the assembly.
