    A while back I posted pictures of the real thing and it can be seen atFuture Structures
    Here are photos of the N gauge model I have made.
    As you know, I name my structures after NARA members.
    This one will not be named until I mount it on the layout.
    Any suggestions!!!

    Another awesome building, Robin! You put those styrene kits to shame! :)

    I think a good candidate name would be Charlie's Tuna Fish Cannery, but you already have something named after him, right? :)

    Hard to believe it's cardboard and paper! I'm lucky if I can get wood to look like wood!:D :D :D

    As usual Robin, another AWESOME structure!! As usual you take the simplest materials and produce something that few of us could even come close to matching. Acually I do have a question for you, what do you use for windows on your models? You are an icon and an inspiration to scratchbuilders all throughout the model railroad hobby.

    Thanks everyone for the very kind words about my models.
    Ed, I draw windows, doors etc. using MS Paint and then print then out on my old Canon ink jet printer. I cut them out and glue them in place behind the window openings I have cut.
    I find cardboard so much easier to use than styrene and it is also a lot cheaper. It takes time and requires patience but then that's true about anything we do with this great hobby.
    This model is based on the real building standing at Basin Head, Prince Edward Island.

    Robin,
    I suggest the 25th member of NARA...after all his namesake is the province that the prototype structure sits...HAHAHAHA...just joking.
