FRUIT STORAGE & PACKING HOUSES

THE WENATCHEE VALLEY, WASHINGTON
THREE KITS - SIX STRUCTURES


Immagrant farmers were lured to the region by the railroads promising cheap land and bountiful crops. With a little irrigation the high desert sprang to life. The fruit growers needed a place to store and sort their fruit. Starting off with the cobblestone Cherry House, a brick office building was soon added. As the orchard expanded a poured concrete Pear House was constructed next along with an attached corrugated metal lean-to Peach House. Finally, the concrete cinder block Potato House was built with a wooden covered sorting platform to complete this interesting trackside industry. Of course you could use them for just about anything. Let your imagination roam a little. General supply shed? A fireworks factory? A Pet Rock factory? Whatever you say!
Any one or all of these small industries will easily fit into your railroad's time schedule.

Cobblestone Cherry House.
The cobblestone Cherry House started it all. Business was so good they added the brick office.


Pear and Peach House. Sorry, photo not available
Next they added the concrete Pear House and soon after the corrugated metal Peach House.


Potato House and sort shed. Sorry, photo not available
Potatoes grew well in the region too so they added this cinder block building and an open sorting platform.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - for this model


ON-LINE HOW TO CLINICS

  HOW TO CLINICS  
Here are a bunch of my on-line how to work with Hydrocal mini-clinics. Each kit includes specific instructions of course- and there are lots of ways to do things, but here are my thoughts, tips and techniques.

  Coloring BRICK  
My traditional techniques for coloring and mortaring brick.

  Coloring STONE  
With a little practice you can color realistic stone walls. Here's how I do it.
What are we going to do now that Testors/Floquil has dropped their Flo-Stains?

  Coloring CONCRETE  
A little gray ink wash and some colorants. It's not that difficult.


SCRATCH-BUILDING STOCK

  Standard Common Brick- fine  
If you like to scratch-build or just want to practice before you do, check out my stock castings. These are the same building blocks I use to create my kits.

  Hand-Carved Stone-  
I have three different grades available. Use as retaining walls, cut them up for foundations, or make whole new buildings.

  Cinder Block Wall  
Mix it up a bit and you'll have an even more interesting building.

  Concrete Retaining Wall  
Whole 4" x 8" panels of the stuff. Use them for retaining walls, foundations, even make complete buildings like I have.


COMPLEMENTARY KITS

  Apple Storage and Packing Houses  
This is the big brother to these smaller kits- After building it I decided maybe I should make some smaller ones.

  Orange Storage and Packing Houses  
A customer was considering using one of my apple houses for oranges. Why not? So I changed the artwork, recipies and labels-
