THE GERMAN COLONIAL FARMHOUSE


INTRODUCING A SERIES OF KITS BASED UPON AMERICAN HOMES

The German Colonial Farmhouse is typical of those built by German immagrants in the 1750s and 60s, the classical Pennsylvania "I".

Known as the "I" due to its popularity in the "I" states of Illinois, Indiana and Iowa. The symmetrical facade was created by dividing the first floor into a parlor and kitchen with a central hall. Massive stone fireplaces were built to both sides to provide heat through those cold winter nights. Simple yet elegant.

The model kit includes my finely carved fieldstone walls and cedar shake roof all cast in White Hydrocal. Custom White metal windows and "cross and bible" doors come from my shop and foundry. Complete coloring and assembly instructions insure great results.


Complete the scene with matching Pennsylvania Slit-Window Bank Barn!


18' x 30' ( 2-1/2" x 4") in HO scale.

    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 STONE  
My favorite techniques for coloring stone. What are we going to do now that Testors/Floquil has dropped their Flo-Stains?

  Coloring SHAKE ROOFS  
Really the same as coloring concrete, it is simple. Check out how I do it.

  Coloring BRICK  
My traditional techniques for coloring and mortaring brick.


SCRATCH-BUILDING STOCK

  Hand-Carved Stone- fine  
Sorry there's not an exact match for this stonework but my HCS-f might do. You could use it for retaining walls and such around the place.

  Cedar Shake Roof- fine  
The roof stock, my Cedar Shake Roof - fine, CSR-f, is also available. I'm telling you, this is a great thing to have. I've even made building walls out of them.


COMPLEMENTARY KITS

  Pennsylvania Slit-Window Bank Barn  
is the perfect match for the German Colonial. It has the same type stone walls. In fact I definately tried to match them. The roof is different though, a seamed metal affair.

  The Virginia Horse Barn  
Or how about another barn. This one features lots of board-by-board construction on top of a simple cobblestone foundation.

  The Safety Hook & Ladder Co.  
  Brick Firehouse  

How about this little two-story firehouse? It's the prefect introduction to Hydrocal brick structures. If you are afraid to tackle the larger kits why not start here? You will find that Hydrocal modeling is lots of fun.

  The Stone Shingle Mill  
is a great introduction to modeling stone in Hydrocal. This is one of my personal favorites, and indeed, one of my most popular kits.
