    Mark: you don't have to restrict yourself to kits that say "Brewery" on the cover. Almost any industrial building could be substituted, claiming that the brewery specific parts are hidden behind the main structure.

    Ohh! That model power is PERFECT for a nice Equine Ranch barn! Just have to sell that stack to the industrial park on the other side of the mountain!

    I had to look up Bucolic!!!

    1. Of or characteristic of the countryside or its people; rustic. See Synonyms at rural.
    2. Of or characteristic of shepherds or flocks; pastoral.

    But yep, thats the one, half my layout will be a farm

    Mark - I know you are looking for N - but inspiration may be found at http://barmillsmodels.com/dailymoose_01_06.html
    BTW Model Power did a pickle factory in HO (not sure if it is available in N) that would go well with your brewery as an extension

    Interior?

    Do either of these kits include interior pieces (the various vats, etc)? I'm still looking for ideas for my brewery, built from a Walthers Power Station kit.

    Thanks, :)

    I'm afraid not marc, I have only seen a HO kit with interior detail, no N scale.

    Ok, now the model power kit has arrived I'm going to use it as an engine engineering workshop, this is now what I am looking at using as a brewery, what do you guys think?

    Mark,

    Walthers online catalog shows this kit. It does have interior detail in the "vat" room on the right. I scratchbuilt a backdrop model out of card stock that resembles it - only half as deep though

    Sams: do you need a Metcalfe dealer in North America? I know a number in southern Ontario.
