Wow! I can't believe I've been working on this little bitty building for almost three weeks now . I had some more problems with it but I won't bore you with them. Suffice to say I probably wouldn't buy from this company again . Anyway here is the more or less finished building ready to go on the layout. The pics are from the angles as you would see it when it is installed.









And a shot with the lights on:

WOW! Mike, I really like that night photo. I need to install more lights in my building. THis might of been asked already, but did you use bulbs or LED's?
The subtle weathering on the roof is a nice look as well. I cannot get over how many battens it has, it really adds to the character.

Thanks Tim for the kind words. Those are bulbs, led's are too directional for these apps for my taste. I do like the battens, in most cases they would have been painted white as well but being as the depot also serves as the NM's home office I figured they would have kept the place a little fancier.

Mike,

This little structure might have given you some trouble, but it came out very nice indeed. The lighting in the low-light shots is very effective.

Gee Mike, I often take 3 weeks, er 3 months, er 3 years to complete my structures and some after 3 years are still under construction.

Looks good with the lights and details added so I guess the next step is to plant her on the layout.

Well I'm getting closer to being done with the depot from Hell! Here we see the guys from the On18 layout installing some N scale rocks, weeds and grass as they finish up the landscaping.

I must admit that I missed your post, Mike. We've been running around like the proverbial chickens without their heads all week.

Anyway, it is great that you can call on the 'big guys' when you have heavy lifting to do.
