    I only have room for one or two medium bldgs. This is my first attempt at kitbashing a industry, overall I'm happy with it, although Charlie threw me a curveball when I found out about having to unload tank cars also. The newer part of the bldg. is 2/3's of a George Roberts Printing Co. and the old building is leftover DPM wall sections, the loading dock is balsa.

    Looks great, Tyson!!
    That's very realistic to make an industry look like it's been there long enough to outgrow one bldg., & add on another, newer one...
    BTW, Tyson, I also have a metal forge, & machine shop on my layout...Does your furniture factory need any metal parts? Nuts, bolts, bearings, etc...?

    I agree with Rory that the vines and other details make this look real.

    Thanks Robin, I think it will look alot better once it has been "planted" and the road, parking lot, grass etc. have been added.
