This month we will feature structures built of brick. Both model and prototype photos are welcome.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

I'll start us off with a shot of my HO scale scratch built Nick's Nickel Plating (named after one of our grandsons). The siding is the brick sheeting from Walt (Rusty Stumps)

This is a Monster Modelworks starter kit, that's been a bit customized.

Bill, I'm certain that I've told you this before, that's a beautiful looking structure!
Great work on it!

Here is a neat looking brick structure, that I just had to stop and photograph.
Things that only modellers do.





The backside of this same brick structure.



And a close up detail on this same structure.

St. Pancras Station and Hotel is a classic big, high-status brick structure, built by the Great Central as the capstone of their late entry to London.



When I first saw it in the 1980s, it was inactive and boarded up. Now it's the terminus for both a new commuter service on the old GC RoW and the Eurostar through the Chunnel to Paris and Brussels.

Thanks, Greg. That's a neat brick building you posted, small and plain, but big enough to be useful on a layout and enough little details to make it unique.

Terrell, that's another nifty model

Here's another brick building on the NEB&W. On the layout it's right across the tracks from Keveny Academy; in real life it stood a couple blocks north, but both buildings are gone now.
My son kitbashed the mill from a couple Walthers kits. I painted it and added the Letterbashed sign.

Some really great examples of brick structures shown by everyone so far.

This Vogue Furniture store kit from "Rail Scale Miniatures" had some of the nicest cast resin brick walls that I've ever seen.
I thought that they looked so good, that I made a latex mold of them before using them.








Here is one of the structures that I made from those very same walls.





And I used them again on the lower walls of my Nilsson Sailmakers factory.
