Todd Architectural Models has designed the third in a series of historic warehouse buildings as an O and S Scale model. The Paterson Silk Factory 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 S Scale model features a laser scored and cut elevation, window and door elements, added sills and cast stone, and built-up laser scored/cut or styrene cornice detail, and is designed around two components. The full-width elevation piece measures 9” long by 10-1/8” tall and includes six columns of windows. The partial-width elevation piece measures 3-1/8” long by 10-3/8” tall and includes two columns of windows. An entrance canopy will be available as an option for both elevation pieces.  The purpose of the partial-width is to provide a seamless connection between multiple full-width elevation pieces.

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. 

The partial width elevation piece was designed to overlap the end columns of basic elevation pieces to create a seamless elevation view when combining multiple pieces for a longer model. It also creates additional visual interest by having a slightly higher cornice and is offset from the basic elevation. The partial width elevation will have your choice of two doors aligned with the window columns or the single, wider centered door.

At this time, the Paterson Silk Factory building may be purchased built-up and painted as a flat (nominally 3/8” deep) and as a shadowbox (nominally 1-1/4” deep). Full-width basic elevation elements may be combined for a longer overall model and the separate partial-width elevation element may be added to complete a 23-3/8” long building (or longer).

Now for the options:

The Paterson Silk Mill may be ordered with one of two window options, one with a single-height double hung window and the other with a pair of 2/3 height double-height with a 1/3 height fixed 4 over 2 pane.

The Paterson Silk Mill may be ordered with clear or translucent glazing.

The Paterson Silk Mill may be ordered with either a brick or cast stone cornice.

The Paterson Silk Mill full-width elevation piece may be ordered with all windows on the first floor, a pair of doors in window columns 3 and 4, or a single larger door centered between window columns 3 and 4.

As with all of our shadowboxes, the full-width and partial width elevation pieces have individual floors and ceilings, and are lighting-ready for 5050 LED’s and a slot for a .312” square Evergreen Scale Models’ tube as a wire chase. We offer the shadowboxes unlit and lit.

At the suggestion of an S Scale modeler, we are adding a loading door as an option to the windows on the first floor of the Paterson Silk Mill. For the ultra-creative you could even put the door on an upper level and add a pulley overhead- very common on end elevations of Paterson mills. Your orders may now include the added option of the number of loading doors and windows that you want on the first floor.

If you want to use your Paterson Silk Mill with the warehouse doors at box car loading dock level, you will need to add your own plinth or foundation.

Here's the O Scale version:
