an orange stripe    Welcome to my web site! an orange stripe


    I have been producing my Fine Hydrocal Casting and Kits for model railroaders for nearly three decades. Hydrocal is a dense castable gypsum cement (similar to Plaster of Paris) in which I have artistically carved, scribed and cast masonry detail to very precise scale. Inside this site you'll find information on the resulting castings and kits, and much much more.

    Besides just selling my castings and kits I'll give you an inside look at how I do it. My way of giving back to the hobby, not just taking.

My shop will be CLOSED

and I will process them upon my return.


    NOW IN PRODUCTION


    CURRENTLY IN STOCK - BUT VERY LIMITED


    I wish I could keep everything in production! But unfortunately I cannot. Currently I still have many On3 Durango roundhouse kits on order, each taking a week or two to produce, so they are in constant production and my top priority. Then there are a dozen Gunnison versions to complete.

    During this time I will be limited on MOST other casting orders.

    Time has caught up with many of my old production molds and I must replace them before resuming their production. See list on top of AVAILABILITY PAGE to see what I currently have IN STOCK (or cast and almost) ready to ship. Note that I may only have one or two so if you want it, mash the BUY button NOW!

See  PRICE & AVAILABILITY   for full details.

    I know I should not have, but I am doing a SPECIAL 2nd RUN of the RIDGWAY ROUNDHOUSE and BRICK OFFICE BUILDING in HOn3 for it's 20th anniversary in 2014. There are some technical issues to work out so it it taking longer that I had planned. Please be patient.

   RIDGWAY ROUNDHOUSE INFO    

    And I am making progress on the DURANGO ROUNDHOUSE in HO scale with the door and window patterns for white metal complete. But lots of work left to do there...

    Guess I had better get busy!

BEGINNING PRODUCTION - APRIL 2011

    The Durango roundhouse (and Gunnison) in O-scale. Brick detail inside and out. Laser-cut engine doors, windows, roof panels with rafter locating marks, and so on. Barely fits on a 4 x 4 foot space if you do all the stalls. A masterpiece that will be the highlight of your model building experience. Check it out:

   2006 CONVENTION ALBUM   

    My apologizes that this has taken so long but we are finally in production. With over 60 of them reserved I'm hoping to produce about one per week (as hard as I try they take twice that!). So new orders are a year or two away.

    I'm beginning production with the full 10-stall orders for Durango. Less than orders and Gunnison will follow. If you have reserved a kit you might want to reconfirm with changing e-mails and such. I've sent announcements out to the first dozen (full-stall orders). Check on the kit info page to review the drawings that are now posted.

    If you reserved a kit and have not heard from me recently please contact me as several reservation notices have not been responded to.

   ROUNDHOUSE KIT INFORMATION   

    You guys are going to freak-out when you see Glenn Farley's Gunnison roundhouse construction article in the Narrow Gauge Gazette. It is truely an amazing model. Glenn pushed me to produce not just one masterpiece but four, Gunnison, Durango in original, "classic" and late versions. No wonder it's taken so long but worth the wait.

BEST VIEWED? WITH MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLODER!

    Well, it was a few versions ago. Not that Internet Explorer is the greatest web browser- but this site was carefully built to best be viewed there. Unfortunately, not all web browsers are built the same and it looks pretty awkward with Netscape Navigator and Apple's Safari. "Not my fault." Well, that's what happens when you don't follow the simple rules of HTML. What You See- Isn't Necessarily What You Get! But we sure tried... Guess we could cut and paste it onto a template and look like every other web site, but that's the point, this is not like all the others, IT's SCRATCH-BUILT, so please enjoy even with the technical e-flaws.
