I've used this kit before to kitbash a structure
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=41775
Last time is was a long building. This time it will be tall - 5 story's, by using 3 kits.

Original kit.




I'll be combining 3 kits, but only the large walls to make a square, 5 story structure. The smaller walls will be used for a later kitbash.

Rob,
Are you done yet? I'm waiting to see how you make a square building out of this one.I've been trying to figure that out for a couple years without carving up /wasting the kits.Mine will be fine at 3 stories but the darn thing is just to narrow.

So I wait for you to work your magic then I will use your ideas to create mine.

For sure, agree with J-Catt that the building is too narrow and needs to bulk out to be a viable candidate for inclusion. Taking it higher is always interesting too.

Rob, this will be another good one to see. Now that I looked at your photo more closely, I see that the cornice is at 90 degrees. From the package photo, I thought it was at a different angle like the HO scale structure I mentioned on the main challenge thread. Can't wait to see you slice and dice!

Thanks, Bill, Bruce, Ted, Chuck, Carl, Kevin, Larry & Johnathan.
Glad you're all interested in another round of DPM slicing & splicing. Talk about pressure.
As noted by Larry & Johnathan, the original is a very narrow structure.

Johnathan, to make it a square structure you will need 2 kits, but only a minimum amount of cutting, as you wish to leave yours at the original height. This will be demonstrated as I progress along.

Thanks Johnathan. I hope you can get something out it. And I hope I'm clear enough with my instructions.

O.K. I've sliced up all the front walls

Here's what an original wall looked like.


Here's 3 of the same sliced up, plus 1 side wall for the left top section. The bottom left shop front is reversed.


Here they are just butted together to see how they look. Almost a mirror image. Still some final tweeking and a few bits of styrene strip to be added before gluing together.

Rob, what do you use to get such clean slices?
