Dave, really nice work, and most impressed with all that framing.
Looking forward to seeing some structure going on it.
I'm very partial to water front scenes, so will be following your progress.

Just one thing, could you make your photos a bit bigger, so we can see some more of the detail.
I find the 720 x 540 a good size.

Tyson, Catt, George, Rob; thanks.

Rob, testing a different size with this picture and wondered if it is any better.

Continuing work on the buildings; windows for the office building and roofing and doors for the receiving building. Big decision is to whether to add lighting. There aren't any commercial gooseneck lights that are pre-assembled and what I found from Ngineering looks like it takes some work. Next step is roofing and doors for the packaging building.

Have mostly finished the first building (pictures below). This building will be surrounded by a dock which I'll be building after I complete all 3 structures of this complex.

Have started on the second building. Having a bit of a challenge in weathering corrugated siding.

Also happy that my wife decided for our next anniversary she's going to buy us an SLR camera so I'm not relying on my iPhone. Still have to wait a few more months though as anniversary isn't until March.

You know if you had proposed 6 months earlier the camera could be yours now! The weathering on the corrugated siding looks good to me.

Thanks James.

Mike, I needed the extra 6 months to get the nerve to ask her to marry me!

I've redone the weathering on the second building with a more uniform palette. It doesn't photo exactly the way it looks (maybe I can talk my wife into exchanging gifts early) but I'm much happier with the change. I went back and looked at some prototype photos and, in general, there's hints of corrosion on corrugated steel but not severe patches. I also read that the roof (I'll work on tomorrow) should be more rusted than the sides.

Here's the repainted version.

Your building is looking good. I have to keep reminding myself that this is N scale.

Thanks George.

With the roof completed I'll now go back and touch up those areas that pictures unforgivingly point out. Then onto the 3rd of the buildings.

Dave,

Interesting choice of a "cannery' on your layout...

I'm doing a similar project in the future.

Did you use a historical photo for the basis of the structure?
