    Thought you guys might want to see how my kit bashed DPM Woods Furniture is coming along. Instead of the rectangular shape I needed to make it fit a triangle and this is what I came up with. The dock side will face the layout and you can see the interior (white styrene thing in background) that will go in and the kit comes with many machines and such. It will be lighted inside and I have an overhead awning that will extend beyond the dock edge out over the cars. There is a lot of angular stuff on this that just happend as I assembled but I like the outcome. I will try to keep you updated as I progress.

    Your roof detail work looks really excellent. Great industrial/lived in look.

    Nice work!
    DPM does have some nice kits for scratchbashing. I don't think I ever built one like it was meant to be.

    That's great work. I especially like the rolled roofing detail.

    Oh yeah, remember, there are two photo contests this month, one of them is for scale structures. I don't have to tell you that this belongs there.:thumb::thumb:

    And where are the furnitures?
    Congratulation, a very good looking plant and for a smaller layout also a very impressive eye catcher! Very nice work!
