I used a AMB building (I think it's Dill's Market) for the pulpwood office. That was about 17 years ago and I need to redo it. Back then I eyeballed the width of the roll roofing and it isn't even close to scale, not to mention the real office had a metal roof. Also the real one had no chimmney either and the front window is way too fancy, needs about 6-9 panes. Also it needs to be sitting up on concrete blocks. The corner boards that came with the kit are out of scale and falling off so I need to replace them with some Evergreen angle which will also get rid of the gap between em'. And it needs steps on the front door only. The real office didn't have a side door but it did have a back door which was never used and had no steps. Other then that it's ready to go!






Here it is after the re-work. Now I just need to "plant" it on the layout.

Nice, Mike. I'm surprised that you didn't just start over rather than make all the changes to the old building, it wouldn't have taken much longer would it?

Thanks George. As far as starting over I would have to buy another kit, do the basic painting and assembly, ect. Re-working this building with parts from the ol' spare parts bin took less than 1 hour and cost nothing but some glue and a little bit of paint for the new window, trim and roof. Plus it's fun to take something I wasn't happy with and turn it into something I am happy with.

A very nice re-do on the little office, Mike.

The re-worked structure looks really good - and the photography is also excellent. Very pretty scenes!

Like Don said, the structure and photography are excellent.
So is the scenery.


As you think, so will you be.
