Did Campbell Ever Make N-scale?

This ebay listing states that these window sets are N-scale but I don't remember ever seeing Campbell doing anything but HO. Anyone remember, or are these just small HO windows and doors?

Here is their online catalog for N scale:

Hmm... no skyscrapers...?

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

Campbell's website lists the part numbers as HO.

Can anyone give an indication of quality? and does anyone want these, for $30 with shipping I might as well go for them.

While Campbell Scale Models did (and still does under new ownership) manufacture a few N-Scale structure kits, the door and window castings incorporated in the firm's 1:160 scale buildings were pewter metal Period Miniatures products.

The white, injection molded plastic Campbell architectural components are HO scale products.

Thanks Neville, that's all I needed to know!

I think that I still have the kit of the all-door boxcar that Campbell made (it is wood and metal castings).  Since the plastic RTR version was issued before I built my kit, it stayed unassembled.

Wood and cast metal, my two least favorite modeling materials.

Did Campbell do this car at some point in time?  The two I have are branded as Quality Craft.  One is still a virgin kit, the other is partially assembled.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Um, I was going from memory.  I haven't seen the kit for probably over 10 years (it is stashed away).  Mine must be also Quality Craft.

Yes, QC made the all-door boxcar.  I built one, and have another unbuilt.  The wood took a LOT of work to look right, but the door castings, with separate metal rods and levers, look better than the plastic version, which seems a little flat.

I had one of their grain elevators on my old layout.  As a model of a wood structure, it looked quite nice.  The price was a lot lower when I bought mine!
