I'm going to use the stone wall pieces from the kit along with a hunk of foam to try to make a foundation for the building.







Also found these letters in my spare parts bin, not sure where they came from but I might could use them to put the name of the business on the side of the building.

Hi Mike. Your building is looking really good. I like how you've modified the roof from the kit version to suit your location.
I have letters/numbers like that from Slaters, but the sprue and colour are different, so not sure what brand yours are.


Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.

Thanks Rob! The letters were part of some kit from years ago, no idea today which one. A update on where I'm at now, still not much actually glued together yet other than the four walls. Still playing with roof details and still need to board up some window openings and put glazing in the other windows and...................

The building is shaping up nicely, Mike. I like the roof details.

I really like what you've done with that building Mike. And the roof details add a lot.

The warehouse is looking great Mike, nice job making it look more American.

I have to say that the Nantahala Midland is what inspired me to start building in N scale again too.

You truly are a master.

Mike, talking about roof details, I went to the ProtoRails show in Cocoa Beach, FL the beginning of the month and there was a clinic on buildings. The guy giving the clinic was a building inspector and he had loads of roof top detail pictures. Too bad he didnít have a handout or a link to his photos to forward.

Hey youíre off to a good start, are you using sprues for the piping?

Frank it figures I'll be in Cocoa in a couple of weeks! The piping was left over from some other kit, not sure which one. Bruce, Dwayne, Mark and Dan thank you!

Looking very good Mike'. Those placards look like current day to me. I have a training manual that is used by USDOT inspectors. These appear to be in the 1980s series....

That figures Ted being that's not my time period. The good news is being it is N scale the printing is so small that you can't read em' and most people won't know that anyway!

Working with letters that are 3/16th's of an inch high caused me to invent several new words for the English language. None of which can be used around women or children!





Also boarded up some windows and put the glazing in the rest:





I think I have finally decided on the roof details:
