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.
My traditional techniques for coloring and mortaring brick.
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?
A little gray ink wash and some colorants. It's not that difficult.
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.
I have three different grades available. Use as retaining walls, cut them up
for foundations, or make whole new buildings.
Cinder Block Wall
Mix it up a bit and you'll have an even more interesting building.
Concrete Retaining Wall
Whole 4" x 8" panels of the stuff. Use them for retaining walls, foundations,
even make complete buildings like I have.
NP 90 ft. Round House
A Northern Pacific Standard Plan, the ultimate "railroad" model.
NP Signal Tower
Another Northern Pacific prototype structure.
NP Freight House
Actually, a railroad storage house often found near the roundhouse.
