I have this among other plasticville buildings, I am working on restoring them. However this building i can't seem to locate who makes it to get parts for it to clean it up. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I have never seen that building, but I sure like it. Good luck with it.

Even if you do locate the manufacturer (Plasticville is a brand name owned by Bachmann), you probably won't find spare parts for it.

However, Plastruct, Evergreen Models, and a bunch of other companies sell brick sheets, window and door castings, stairs, pillars, chimneys, etc. Purchase what you need for the restoration and have at it. Good luck!

While I don't know the maker of that building, I do know that Plasticville replacement parts are readily available online. What scale is it?

I don't believe it's Plasticville. I can't help you beyond that.
