Todd Architectural Models has designed the third in a series of historic warehouse buildings as an O Scale model. The Paterson Silk Mill building model was recreated from site photographs of two existing buildings. The buildings have a similar brick elevation, but have a variation in the cornice and windows. The model is suited for fabrication as a flat, shadowbox or building. Paterson (NJ), known as the home of Lou Costello and Larry Doby, location of the first documented manned submarine submersion and onetime silk capital of the world, can now have one of its classic mill warehouses on your layout.
The single section model features laser scored and cut elevation, window and door elements, and built-up laser scored/cut or styrene cornice detail. Each basic elevation piece measures 12”long by 13-3/4”tall. The Paterson Silk Mill building offered here is built-up and painted as a flat (nominally 1/4”deep).
The full-width elevation piece was originally designed with only windows on the ground floor. We have now integrated the option of having a door added to the middle two window columns (columns three and four). An alternate door option provides for a single, wider door centered between window columns three and four.
In lieu of windows and/or doors on the first floor, you may specify between one and six warehouse doors.
Each flat is constructed of laser scored and cut acrylic plastic, and Taskboard, and is professionally finished to be individually unique. Windows are fabricated using two layers of laser cut Lazerboard for sashes and frames. Glazing is your choice of .006” clear, translucent acetate or Roscolux grey.
If you prefer a 1” deep shadowbox model, we offer it lit (WH-03-LIT) and unlit (WH-03-UNLIT).
