    FRUIT INDUSTRY HO SCALE KITS


    Large and small these fruit packing and storage houses would make a very interesting, and busy, industry on your layout. I first became interested in these noting a variety in the background of my train watching in central Washington. There were modern concrete tilt-ups, massive poured concrete ones, old brick and stone... Eventually I figured I'd better make some models of them.

    There are three versions of the Apple Store Houses. A single-story brick, a single-story concrete, or a two-story brick over concrete structure for those bumper crop years.

    I've taken the same three versions of apple houses and converted them into Orange Packing Houses by simply changing out the color artwork. So if your railroad runs to the south here is the line side industry you've been waiting for.

    If the apple or orange houses are too big for your layout but you are still interested in modeling this great line side industry I have just the models for you. I'm calling the group the Fruit Row Complex. They include the following, available seperately in the pairs listed, or buy all six in one kit and save a little money.

    The orchard started off with the cobblestone Cherry House and soon added a small brick office building. Next they added the concrete Pear House and corrugated metal Peach Shed addtion. Finally, the cinder block Potato House was built along with its wooden covered sorting platform.

    Unfortuantely, these models were unavailable for quite a while, however, we are bringing them back very soon. Please feel free to reserve yours today! Just send me and e-mail and I'll put you on the list.

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 too. Here's how I do it.
What are we going to do now that Testors/Floquil has dropped their Flo-Stains?


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.
