Product Description
This model is based on drawings made in 1980 of a water tower at the John Krohn Ranch in San Martin, California.   Virtually every orchard and vineyard farm house in Califorina and possibly elsewhere included a water tower primarily for domestic use so that the house had running (presureized) water.  Most  farms converted to smaller tanks and then eventually to in ground pumps.  Many of the towers remain although likely non or them are currently used for water storage.  I lived in one of these farm houses in the late sixties.  I had an above ground pump with a 50 gallon tank next to it.  The house was a bungalo style which was also very typical.  We used the water tower for tools on the ground floor and attached our TV antenna higher up on the side.  I think the tank was still inside but never got to go up and explore as we were only renting.  The prototype for this tower had a wind mill but that was not at all common as these houses had electricity both for the house as well as for the irragation systems.  Lots and lots of water was needed for the orchard or vinyard and these towers would not hold enough water for that purpose.

You will need to add roofing and paint to complete the model.

Be sure to thoroughly clean off remaining wax residue from models. I use 91% rubbing alcohol and an ultrasonic cleaner.  A micro filling primer such as Mr.SURFACER 1000 from MrHobby is highly recommended to hide most of the ruffness in the surface that is caused by the pringing process.
