Good Evening Everyone,
I'm building Bret's Brewery (Campbell Scale
Models) for a friend. He wants it built as a unused
and rundown building in a brewery complex.

Here is the kit and its contents.



Step 1 Tape the back side of the wall sections and cut out the doors and windows.I went over both sides of the wall sections with my black india ink and ammonia wash.My mix is a film can
with two droppers of ink. Use the dropper that comes in the ink bottle.

During my trip to New York in 2017, I took photos of several water tanks on top of buildings. Here is one that I think we would appreciate.
Regards, Vic B.

Many buildings have water tanks on their roofs. I can't see any reason why the internal building structure can't have framing to support the load. I'm actually thinking of kit bashing this to include internal timber framing that is supporting the water tank, with a removable roof, and maybe even detailing the entire brewery operation.

Here is a photo of the Industrial water tank
that I built from Campbell kit plans. I was
reading on the Rensselaer site about architectural
practices. They were talking about Bret's regarding
the boiler house and the water tank. In the real
world the water tank would never be constructed
on the top of that type building. The weight would
crush the structure. Also, the boiler house would
not have a "Lightning Striker" roof, so I lowered
mine to a more normal pitch.

Tommy, your brewery looks pretty good. Do you have any more pictures?

Hey Mike did you ever finish this project? Pat

Check out the O scale version of this kit. It is being built by Tom. The kit Is "Mt Albert Brewery".
Tommyblooz Posted - 01/18/2008 : 1:30:43 PM
Everyone seems to love this kit but until I found this article, I had seen very few photos of the finished kit. Here is a photo of my effort. I haven't completed the build but you can get an idea of what it will look like when I am finished. Notice that the water tank is not on the roof. Very unprototypical and structuraly unsound. I also lowered the roof on the boiler house and hand laid the bricks using Hunter Scenery Products bricks. I built the roof for the boiler house using the techniques from Darryl Hoffman's DVD.

I'd love to see other modelers post their photos of Bret's.

This is a great thread. My first structure kits I built were Campbell Kits I did back in the 70's. I have Brett's Brewery that my younger brother built back then. I will also be replacing the front office with a scratchbuilt section of some sort, and adding many of my own touches to it before it goes on the layout.

Thanks for all the photos, you guys do great work!

Thanks Brian for the nice comments about Bret's.
I have never liked Campbells windows and doors they always looks wrong some how to me. I thought I would see if I could make them look better on this project. I think what I did helped them, but on a different project I will use GL. Grandt Line and now Tichy Train Group is what I keep in stock on my work bench.

Wow, seeing Brett's Brewery brings back memories. That was my first wood kit and it is still on dispaly at my old RR club. I'm sure it doesn't look even half as good Mike's. However, I certainly looks waaay better than Karl's junk!

Mike, good idea cutting back those big clunky windows.Campbell make some tremendously big windows. You are certainly doing the kit justice...excellent weathering and attention to detailing the broken board look. Much better than Karl's. All in all it's going to be a great looking model. Still a personal favorite. keep posting great shots. I have never seen an excellent job done on this kit before. I'm interested in what a great job done to this kit will look like.

Brian

Hope I woke up my boy from his Michigan freeze...Karl!

Thanks, Karl. I'll see how she prints out later today.

Hi All:

Here is the J. F. Fenstermacher sign for all to use.

Looks great, Mike. I like the color of the windows, the boarded up window and your loading doors. Nice job, so far!

Mike,
Thanks! It is already cut and pasted into my "Modeling Tips" file.
