    Shane, no teasing this time (though it’s a tempting thought :D ). Two more pictures.

    I painted the buildings. I have to do windows and doors next.

    COMBAT, radar, thank you for your nice words :wave: .

    To do all the windows took quite a while. But now, it’s done! I might add some more detail later on, but for the moment I think I spent enough time on this structure. Here are some more pics.

    Wow

    WOW, YOU DID A FANTASTIC JOB ON THIS BUILDING.

    I love the roof Vents and Access Door and the ladder coming down to the front building.

    O and the covered loading dock and the Dust Collectors on the side of the building look GREAT. And the windows look so good, GREAT JOB KURT!!!!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    I'm not by nature inclined to modern "boxy" structures. But when they look like that... I'll take 'em anytime...!!! Superb work..!!! Wouldn't expect anything less from you, of course.

    Thanks for delighting us with your marvels...!!!sign1

    Great work, Kurt, I especially like the shot taken from street-level. It's the perfect transition from seedy to industrial. :thumb: :thumb:

    What can I say that hasn't been said before? It is such a treat to see you as you progress though each new project:thumb: :thumb:
    The only thing missing is...the suspense! Each and every one of us know how it is going to turn out in the end....
    AWESOME!
    Oh yeah...one other thing is missing...THE SPONGE CAR!...I'll send it over;)

    Giving me hope! Love the pictures...great work!

    The dog is great...I want to add things that don't stand out but when people see them they are impressed/awed/surprised. I saw a layout with a naked man going down a fire escape because the massage parlor was surrounded by police!

    Thank you all very much for your nice and very much appreciated comments. :wave: :wave: jr switch, Wayne, "seedy" was not the word to come into my mind as a compliment for anything I did before I started model railroading. Now I like it :D . Steve, I don’t know if NP interchanged their sponge cars with AT&SF. You should consult your issue of The "Real" History of the Railroad by D. R. Ooler before you send it over. Remember, we are serious model railroaders – only prototypical operation allowed on our layouts sign1 .
