Crushed and finely graded graded light weight black volcanic lava analogue. Use stand alone for modelling volcanic and apocalyptic landscapes, and as high fidelity coal for model wagon and tender fill. Providing for exacting realism and the ability to create without concession.
Researched, Developed and Manufactured in the UK.

Colour and Source:
Dark colour, sizing and texture provide for volcanic landscape and apocalyptic scenic analogue in scales from 1:20 to 1:220. see below for scaling.

Analogous at OO/HO Scale both to black anthracite "steam coal cobbles" from the South Wales' valleys, and also the bituminous coals worked in the Central Lowlands of Scotland, North East and Midland Coalfields.

Actual Grain Size: 1.0mm +
High Fidelity Analogue at OO/HO Gauge to real life 75-150mm anthracite cobbles.

Pack size: 2kg

Embrace the exacting detail that defines the ultra realism of our high fidelity crushed and graded lightweight volcanic scree analogue.

Our meticulously crafted lightweight black basalt / lava analogue not only adds authenticity to contemporary, retro and fantasy landscapes but becomes a critical element in the storytelling process. We pay the utmost attention throughout our unique manufacturing process to ensure that the product you receive is free from dust, thus allowing you to create without compromise and providing you with the material to create a sensory experience that transcends its miniature scale.

Colours, textures and most importantly the "true to scale" size of our Ultra Realistic Analogues are all carefully chosen, ensuring that the stone reflects the diversity of both real life applications and those in imagined Worlds.

Model railway enthusiasts, enhance the aesthetic appeal of your model railway and impress fellow enthusiasts with the attention to detail that sets your layout apart. Browse our full range of analogue options, unleash your creativity and let the realism roll!

Using Model Railway Nomenclature, Applications for Black Lava Analogue Include:
Real life examples rounded to nearest actual quarried sizes.

Z Scale (1:220): Real life 250 to 500mm broken stone, ie boulders in a size 100 to 400kg- Often referred to in the construction industry as "rip-rap" or stone scree. Use for modelling at small scale, river revetment, and drainage schemes. Texturally at this scale the product is an analogue for broken volcanic scoria or large ejecta. ( Google Icelandic eruptions 2023/24)

N Scale (1:148): Real life 150-300mm broken stone. ie boulders in a size 20 to 100kg -
TT Scale (1:120): Real life 75-250mm fragmented scorched concrete, stone pieces in a range of sizes from 20 to 100kg. Think Iceland, fields of broken volcanic scoria and cones of basaltic cinders.

OO/HO Scale (1:76): Real Life 75-150mm coal cobbles
Our graded lightweight black lava analogue makes for perfectly textured large coal cobbles for model railway wagon and tender fill at OO/HO scale. Ideal for realistic loco shed stockpiles of coal

The lightweight nature of our analogue reduces the weight needing to be pulled without compromising realism.

O Scale (1:43): Real Life 40-75mm crushed stone - Not a common size of stone used in the UK construction industry, except for hidden backfill to structures. However, our lava analogue can be effectively used at this scale to provide for a textured matt black stage base for film and image sets and gaming scenics.

G Scale (1:22): 20-40mm aggregate. Typically in the real world the size of aggregates used for land drainage, however, our analogue provides for accurate textural ground cover for large scale film and image volcanic scapes and gaming dioramas.

Colour & Form:
We take great care to provide accurate images, however, shade variations can occur both with the products themselves and with ambient lighting.

When used for modelling, perceived variance to colour and reflectance can occur due to base materials and adhesives used.

It can be difficult to adequately describe and visualise grain size, we do, however, show products in context with additional images.

This product option is packed in a secure weatherproof pack.
