The information provided on this page is the result of my (George Kohs) involvement with the work of Fine Art Models from the beginning of that business until late in 1998 when Kohs & Company was formed and dedicated to the production of O scale models. Having been intimately involved in the development and production of all the projects at Fine Art Models during those years, I have knowledge and documentation regarding those projects. While Fine Art Models became famous for the larger scale (1/32) railroad projects and other transportation models of all types and many know, there was an involvement with a number of O scale projects. I have opted to make some of that information available here for future reference as it tends to be available no where else which leads to much speculation and misinformation being spread..

Gary Kohs, Founder/Owner of Fine Art Models passed away unexpectedly a number of months ago. While the Fine Art Models business I believe still survives, I am not familiar with the current management/ownership and their level of knowledge regarding past projects. I am very often contacted for help with Fine Art Models products and I am happy to help when possible, subject to the limitations of time and available resources. I do maintain an ongoing relationship with the builder that produced all of the train models and that has proven to be a helpful resource in a number of situations.
