THE STONE SHINGLE MILL


The Stone Shingle Mill is one of my most popular kits. It's one of my favorites, too. And why not? With its hand-scribed cobblestone walls, handsome face with arched windows and chimney to the rear. You'll love the cast cedar shake roof. It captures every bit of the fine detail of the hand-split, hand-laid shingle-by-shingle originals!

Coloring and assemble is ease with my complete step-by-step painting and weathering instructions to guide you. I'm sure you will be very pleased with the results.

This simple kit is a great introduction into the fun world of Hydrocal modeling. It's pretty easy and straight forward, with four walls and a cast roof. How hard can that be? We'll have you cut out the remaining plaster in the windows, trim the roof a little to fit the chimney. You can practice a little hand-scribing on the back of the chimney. We'll take you through the coloring process step-by-step. Paint and place the windows. Put just a little Elmer's Carpenter's Wood Glue on it and we'll have a fine model we're both proud of!

The model was the subject of my construction article featured in the Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette in 1992.

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

cobblestone structure built into a hillside.
A photo of my pilot model. It's been to lots of shows.
The Stone Shingle Mill. A front view of the prototype. It is being restored.
A photo of the real structure in poor repair.


When I built the patterns I didn't have the prototype photo in front of me. I had glimpsed at it in a magazine/book-
and so it's not an exact replica. But I think it captures the feel.

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


SCRATCH-BUILDING STOCK

  Hand-Carved Stone-  
I have three different grades available. Use as retaining walls, cut them up for foundations, or make whole new buildings.

  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.

  Cedar Shake Roof- large  
The roof stock, my Cedar Shake Roof - Large, CSR-L, is also available. Perhaps it is more suitible for larger scales but I used it here.


COMPLEMENTARY KITS

  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 White Stone Church  
is the next model in this catagory. It has the same type stone walls though I cheated a little bit and never painted them. The cedar shake roof on the church is a finer, smaller shingle.

  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.
