A SPECIAL RUN of KITS
HOn3
RIO GRANDE SOUTHERN


The Ridgway Roundhouse was released as a limited run kit in 1994. Only 125 kits were produced and they have ALL sold out. The companion Brick Office was also sold out.

This was a pretty nice model. It faithfully depicted the prototype with five stalls plus two addtional stalls for the famous Galloping Geese. Of course the walls were my original hand-scribed brick. I even modeled the cracks! Pits were included. The windows are Grandt Line and the engine doors were easily constructed over full-size templates.


In 2014 for the kit's 20 year anniversary
I'm doing a special run of the Ridgway Roundhouse and Office Building.
It will include some updates such as laser-cut roof panels. Watch for details.
E-mail your name, address and phone number to reserve.

    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.


COMPLEMENTARY KITS

  The Ridgway Brick Office Building  
The required companion of the Ridgway Roundhouse. I doubled the run so these are still available

  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 and not that difficult to master.

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