Water Tower Model


I, Mike Hungerford, hold the sole copyright to each of my model designs and any images thereof on this site, but hereby grant permission for their free use for any legitimate non-profit purpose, so long as the copyright and attribution included in each model's file(s) remains intact and unmodified.

If you wish to make any of my models available from your own Web site, please do so by linking to my models page rather than by hosting copies of the models' files. This ensures that visitors will always find the most current version of any given model.

I would appreciate receiving copies of any modifications made to my designs, simply for my own enjoyment.


Please let me know if you find a problem while building this model, or if you enjoyed building it as much as I enjoyed designing it. A photo of your build would also be welcome. You can send me e-mail here:

This page is dedicated to 1:160 scale (approximately) models created for Junyang Kao's Spayneville project.

The Spayneville concept and logo are the intellectual property of Junyang Kao, and are used here with permission.
This is the Spayneville municipal water tower; its base is 2.375 inches (6 cm) square, and the model stands about 7 inches (18 cm) tall.

Two versions are currently available: the first version represents the tower in its pristine, newly-constructed 1958 condition, before weather and abuse took their toll; the second version is of the tower in 2007, after fifty years of abuse, neglect, weather, and many repaints which somehow never turn out quite right ...

The photo is of the prototype water tower; the lines on the downloadable versions are not so pronounced.

A great place to hang out!

To enhance your Spayneville experience, here is a sheet of twenty-five street lamp posts in scale to the water tower and the rest of Spaynveille. The lamp posts can be built with either one or two lamps.

Another great place to hang out!

Spayneville has had several court houses since its founding. The first survived until 1954, then was burnt to the ground. Six times the court house was rebuilt, and each time it was promptly burned down. This latest court house, built in 1997-1998, is constructed of heavily reinforced concrete and should withstand any further arson attempts.

There are secrets inside!

These pages were created using Windows Notepad and a variety of resources. This page was last updated 2007-06-17: I added the file and photo for the court house.
