an orange stripe    Welcome to my web site! an orange stripe


    I have been producing my Fine Hydrocal Casting and Kits for model railroaders for nearly three decades. Hydrocal is a dense castable gypsum cement (similar to Plaster of Paris) in which I have artistically carved, scribed and cast masonry detail to very precise scale. Inside this site you'll find information on the resulting castings and kits, and much much more.

    Besides just selling my castings and kits I'll give you an inside look at how I do it. My way of giving back to the hobby, not just taking.

    NOW IN PRODUCTION


    CURRENTLY IN STOCK - BUT VERY LIMITED


    It's been a tough year. Dad's health has been great for so long but it's catching up with us. He's 93 and needs lots of maintenance. Been in the shop a few times- currently doing well. As I am his solo caregiver I've not kept up with my intentions. It's been a year since I've updated the website. And there are lots of unfinished projects and production to complete. I do what I can when I can.

    Good news is I've got a batch of HO Ridgway Roundhouse kits going out and there are some Durango O-scale kits to ship. Beyond that I can't promise much.

    I'll be here working, but not always available. Keep in mind I've got Builders In Scale to take care of too.

    I won't say the shop is closed- if I have the kit or castings I'll send them, if they need to be cast be prepared to wait a while. I'll let you know if this might be long. But likely so.

    I will be close Xmas week.


    I wish I could keep everything in production! But unfortunately I cannot. Time has caught up with many of my older molds and must be replaced before resuming their production.
Currently I'm focused on the narrow gauge roundhouses with Durango and Gunnison to follow in On3.
In HO a 2nd run of Ridgway is slowly shipping, and much work has been done on Durango.

    See list on top of AVAILABILITY PAGE to see what I currently have IN STOCK (or cast and almost) ready to ship.

See  PRICE & AVAILABILITY   for full details.

    I am doing a SPECIAL 2nd RUN of the RIDGWAY ROUNDHOUSE and BRICK OFFICE BUILDING in HOn3. Over 80 are reserved so it will take a while to get to the end of the list. Please remain patient. These are hand-cast just for you, not mass produced overseas nor by machine (okay, the laser helps a lot).

   ROUNDHOUSE KIT INFORMATION   

    You guys are going to freak-out when you see Glenn Farley's Gunnison roundhouse construction article in the Narrow Gauge Gazette. It is truely an amazing model. Glenn pushed me to produce not just one masterpiece but four, Gunnison, Durango in original, "classic" and late versions.
