    double the size!

    Insted of buying 2 walthers northern power, I connected both wall sections and used blank styrene for the back wall. I had alot of trouble doing the roof though. Size was bigger than standard styrene. Hopefully painting it black took focus away from it. chalk weathering.

    Unusual scratchbuilding idea.

    This N scale scrap building is made from the roof vents of an HO walthers rolling mill and some scrap styrene. sorry bad pic.

    Re: making it up...

    How can you say that? With about one gazillion different buildings in this world, I don't care what you kitbash, it will always look prototypical And remember, if after you've looked at them all and you don't find a building it could look like, there are always other worlds out there.:eek: :eek:

    I vote that these are good looking buildings and could easily be 100% protoypical. I like you ideas too...:wave: :wave:

    Nice pictures. I particularly like the way you are modeling the landscape in the third picture. It provides a good setting for trains. It seems that the goal of many model railroaders is to fill all the empty space on their layout with track. :thumb: :thumb:
