Craig, hope you're better soon. Kidney stones are the worst pain. I've passed several over the years. Although, the last one I passed saved my life.

Nice job, Tom. Here's a couple of caskets in case you haven't seen them.

When you say, "FOS Hendrix Style Foundry"... Have you got an Ed Fulasz "Old Stone Warehouse"?


when Ed Fulasz retired, the rights to his kits were obtained by Jimmy Deignan who produced them for a number of years. When he decided to stop production, the rights, and I assume, molds, were transferred to Doug Foscale. That's why you see some "Fulasz style" hydrocal show up from time to time in a few of Doug's kits.

Anyway, nice job Kurt.

We all know wooden structures can warp over time. I wonder what these paper/cardboard ones will do. Have you given any thought to adding wood bracing to the building before assembling it? Would it help prevent future warping? Just a thought.

Luv the stone coloring. It is spot on. Great build, as always!

It was on display at the Expo and is still listed on their website as available.

A true story about Randy Pepperock and Downtown Deco that everyone needs to read. A few years ago, Randy made the sojourn to the Expo as a vendor. I had admired several of his kits, but hadn't built any. I particularly liked the Addam's Avenue 3 kit and bought one at the Expo. It sat for several months while other projects came and went. Finally, I brought out the kit to build. To my disappointment, all four walls were so badly warped or twisted that building it was impossible. I had built several of Ed Fulasz's kits, so it wasn't my first hydrocal rodeo. I emailed Randy and explained the problem. He said being a one man operation, sometimes things happen and he would make it right. A few days later, what I assumed was a replacement kit arrived. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box and had not only a replacement, but two complete sets of walls and two extra side walls for practice, AND they were perfect! This kind of outstanding customer service is one reason I have bought several more Downtown Deco kits and will continue to support Randy and his business. Every other DD kit I've bought has been perfect.  I just ordered this kit and encourage all you hydrocalphobic modelers do the same. You won't be disappointed.

Gerald, if you're looking for a cast replacement door, try here. They make some that are very close to FSM.      4-0179 to 4-0183   and here      4-0349 to 4-0351

Their castings are very good quality.

If anyone is looking for a fast, easy way to "plant" their lighthouse, here's a link to a precast hydrocal "stone" base from builders in scale/cc crow.

CC Crow's lighthouse is out of stock.
