Thought I'd post some pictures of one of my earlier kit-bashes, to show how some simple alterations can turn a rather generic kit into something unique to your layout. This structure started out as one of thoses DPM factories...(I think it was called Gripps Luggage, or something like that...?) The building was going along the backdrop, so that enabled me to double its length, since it didn't need a "back". There was a seam showing where I joined the 2 wall sections together, so I glued a piece of sprue there, to look like a pipe going down the wall. I thought the shorter roof needed something, so I fashioned the corrugated structure from part of a Walthers coal mine kit. The clerestory on the taller section was made from pieces of a Model Power farmhouse. All of the roofs were made from Evergreen sheet styrene, & siding. I also added some pipes, & chimneys, & boarded up some of the windows to give the place some character.
