HERRINGBONE BRICK PLATFORMS


Herringbone Brick Platforms.

HERRINGBONE BRICK PLATFORMS

These Herringbone Brick Platforms come in four scale widths of 6, 8, 12 and 16 feet including 6" stone curbing. They are 1/8" thick and 8" long. Use them to surround your depot and passenger tracks. The scale herringbone is laid on the diagonal. Cast in White Hydrocal.

6 ft, 8 ft, 12 ft and 16 ft wide in HO Scale
about 1/8" thick and 8" long


I first created a herringbone brick pattern 20 years ago. It was, and is, great for platforms however many railroads, like the Northern Pacific, layed their herringbone brick in a diagonal pattern. Well, I finally got around to doing the diagonal patterns. I even added a stone (or concrete) curb. They will go great along the tracks by your depot or between tracks.
Currently they are only offered in the mixed set of one each.

    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

  NP 90 ft. Round House  
A Northern Pacific Standard Plan, the ultimate "railroad" model.

  NP Signal Tower  
Another Northern Pacific prototype structure.

  NP Freight House  
Actually, a railroad storage house often found near the roundhouse.
