Textures by Clever Models but most modified using photo editing program





Inspiration for models from article in Nov 1952 Model Railroader.



There is a real Thomas Crapper & Company in England. It was founded in 1861 and was the leading plumbing company, supplier of plumbimg fixtures, and builder of water and sewer systems in Victorian Age England. The company still exists.

These look like fine models. What did you mount the printed texture on?

The building sides are printed on 110 lb cardstock. The window and door opening are cut out the walls laminated to another copy printed on 24 lb paper The back wall and side walls are one piece folded. The cardstock is reinforced with 1/8" square wood strips.

This method is easier for me than building a properly sized box to laminate the sides to.
