    Nice work! I also enjoy these 'craftsman' kits. They take lots of patience, but the end result is something to be proud of.

    Years ago I built a Suydam Standard Station. The kit used cardboard walls embossed to resemble wood siding and included plastic windows and doors. Well, the Vancouver Island humidity did a wonderful job of warping the cardboard, so I bought some milled wood and will remove the carboard sides and use them as templates to cut the milled wood to size. Your photos remind me of the task that lays ahead for me.

    Running water, electricity, and a satellite dish would be an improvement!

    Just kidding! This is an exceptionally realistic model. The weathering was well placed; in particular, the beaten boards on the edge of the loading dock. You are an exceptional modeler! Show us some more.
