This evening I spent my lunch break working on the low-relief background building for the Handy Co extension, and so far have managed this:

I'm not sure yet if I will layer up over this with card and more texture papers, but if I do it will be much later along, as I've got more pressing jobs to finish - like the ground cover and the rest of the structures! :)

This building is still a work in progress though, and I've got a lot of work left to do on it. :)

Cheers Mike, though I think the credit rests squarely with the Clever Brothers, as their textures are truly superb.

Very nice weathering on the "lunch break" building.

Thanks Frank, though I can't take credit for it, it's the Clevermodels "Philly Modular warehouse" kit - a really nice structure that's very easy to work with. :)

I didn't get chance to post images of yesterday's work at the time, so I'll have two updates today I hope. :)

First up, I managed to add a cinder block foundation to the unloading shed - lots more work to do here but progress is progress!

Next, I purchased a pack of Clevermodels structures last night, and decided to start working on one of them - I'm thinking I might put this on the front of the Handy Co board in place of the trackside cafe, and move that to the other side of the tracks. So far I've just stuck the texture papers to some card and cut out the windows and doors. I'm tempted to make this one purely from card and make a fully detailed interior considering it'll be right at the front of the layout, but we shall see. :)

More to come later! :D

Last night's progress was mainly focused on the Coal office, though I decided against putting an interior in the structure.

I also made a quick chemical storage tank for the Handy Co yard. I've been thinking about moving the yard office somewhere else and possibly putting some waste ground and garages along the side of the factory building. I'm not sure on the composition yet but I'm going to build a couple of garage kits and see if I can fit them somewhere. If not, I'll save them for the Ramon Blvd expansion which I have planned next. :)

Anyway, enough waffling, picture time!

Dan, thanks for the tip on Clever Models. I'm off to Michael's today to but some 65# paper and download a few buildings. I've been looking for a way to fill in the gaps between buildings along the backdrop.

No worries Frank, anytime. If you are doing something commercial, I'd recommend the 1st Street Commercial Buildings collection - plenty in there to make up a nice alleyway look. :)

If you intend on something more industrial, the Brick or Steel Industrial Buildings collection is a fantastic source of kitbashing materials. I've got enough from 3 of their collections to populate an entire layout. :)

Yesterday's progress was the finishing of the coal office, though I think that the chimney as provided in the kit is way too big, so I'm going to shorten it by half and use the other half elsewhere.

I also assembled the truck scales, and started on a garage which may or may not get a place on the extension, though no photos of those - yet!

On my shelf layout (Wrecker's Reef) thereís no room left for buildings. So Iím using the Clever Models along the backdrop. I downloaded Plant #2 as a test build. Iím working on that one now. Yikes there sure a lot of tiny detail parts. I think Iím going to skip some of them. I can see where attaching them to foam core would be a big help.
