O SCALE SCRATCH BUILDING
STOCK PANELS

    !WARNING!
IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS TO GET TO YOUR ORDER

    Sorry, I wish I was able to keep these in stock for immediate shipping but I cannot. There's no room left in my shop due to the Durango roundhouse project. Most of the molds are old and cranky, sort of like me, and take special care to produce quality castings. In order to have time and space for the new kits I must put other things aside. So if you can be patient with me I would be happy to cast some of these for you- but it will be when I can.
I'll e-mail you back with my probable schedule.




Listed below are my
O scale Scratch-Building Stock Panels


    These are the finest masonry scratch-building components available. The precise hand-scribed patterns are faithfully reproduced in silicone rubber molds. They are cast in strong yet highly workable White Hydrocal. The backs are scraped flat in the casting process to assure you of a standard thickness.

    Each pack comes with finishing instructions, suplimented with the descriptions listed at the bottom of this page.

    All measurements are approximate, to listed scale.


PRICE IS $16.50 PER SET

Note: My HO scale Hand-Carved Stone and others can also be used in O scale.
See full HO listings for additional options.

Sizes show on this page are O-scale which is 1/4" per foot.
Actual panel sizes are then shown in inches.


The Wolf Creek Saloon exterior view. A typical single story brick structure 
with a handsome face, painted white and accented with blue trim. There are two 
large windows with the door in the middle. Two guys are sitting outside on a 
bench talking. There are lots of colorful signs on the side of the building.




YOU CAN BUILD SOME COOL STUFF WITH THESE THINGS!

    These are the same building blocks I use to create the patterns for my kits. I take the pattern that I need, cut it up, add window and door openings, and sometimes, yes, I do fancy stuff to them, but without these stock panels I'd be lost. Pretty nice of me to share them with you, wouldn't you say? You don't have to do anything fancy. You can just use the concrete and stone for simple retaining walls, or maybe get brave and cut some of this stuff for a foundation or wall. Once you figure out how easy it is to work with and see the realistic results you'll want to do more and more.

PRICE IS $16.50 PER SET
