    Some more work may come pretty soon. I like Gary S' way of building SUPER STRONG structures, so I'm going to go that way. :) Thanks for the Idea, Gary. :) Anyways, some nice plywood will make it strong. One of my friends has been a professional Set-builder ( Back to the Future III, The Matrix: Reloaded) and carpenter for 40 years. The complex Facade will be milled plywood, or Pine, and the floors will be plywood. Scratchbuilt overhangs and loading dock from Basswood& Styrene, Loading doors, windows, and other doors from Grandt Line, and plasticstruct pieces to round out the details.
