2016 Ken®vention Exclusive

ModScale1:6 is returning to Kenvention this year! Commemorate your 2016 Ken®vention experience with an exclusive ModScale1:6 souvenir! UPDATE, you may now order up to July 31, 2016 for this exclusive souvenir!

Carson Trunk Co. and The Gentleman’s Bar.

Established in 1862 as a saddlery, the company’s later addition of trunks happened very naturally for Kenneth Carson, the trusted and hard-working founder. The recent expansion of U.S. railways eased access to lumber; the company had good standing relationships with leather tanners and finishers; and the name was already associated with the best leather craftsmanship in the country.

The pieces screamed well-made (as they do today) and gave pause to fellow travelers who pondered where the carrier made his fortune. Timber? Mining? Regardless of industry, those who could afford a Carson Trunk in the 1800’s had reason to celebrate. Many worked hard and deserved to sit back occasionally with a belt from their selection of fine whiskies. 

Ken Carson, youngest of the tycoon’s great-great-grandchildren, pushes forward the family’s tradition of impeccable design and construction, most recently with The Gentleman’s Bar, a decorative – yet functional – nugget of U.S. history. Still in Carson City Nevada, once a hub for the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, Carson Trunk reaches north and east to collaborate with Jamie Kelly (for ModScale1:6) and Kenvention’s Jenny Jenkins.

trunk features:
• good quality, laser-cut birch plywood
• hand sanded and constructed
• soft, premium leather strapping
• metal hinging and decorative buckles
• two narrow shelves for glasses at left
• storage for six wine bottles
• two shelves for storage at right
• railway theme decoupage interior
• polyurethane exterior coating


Please remember to return order form by July 31, 2016!
