    Probably. You'd want to seal up all those openings around the base, sans for a few doors. Be sure to add a truck sale and small office, too. Also want to make sure new signs reflect the building's use.

    You can kitbash almost anything into something else with a lot of imagination and work. The lower level should be built in and the windows removed and filled in on the upper level. I think it would be easier and cheaper to buy a grain elevator kit.

    Unless you have alot of parts to kitbash with I think it would be cheaper to buy the kit you like.Anything is possible, build what makes you happy,enjoy what you do.

    M'kay.
    That's what I needed to know.
    I will probably just go for a grain elevator when I can squeeze one in.
