    :wave: It's me again, I got 10 pictures to upload so please be patient.
    I used everything I had in the scrap box to build this thing including: bic lighter parts, 3 AA batteries, clear plastic tube my twissers came in etc. It is a big business in a small space, it has it's own spur and the LPB's are to busy to be messin with a customer as a box car is coming in and they need to load it with concrete blocks to be moved out later today. I thought I would give you a walk around to have a look for yourself. So here we go!
    The first is a overall view=

    :wave: Thanks folks, Dick, I use what is called rough cut brick sheet styrene, when you use an alc/india ink wash it just makes the brick pop out. ;)

    Well done, JIM:thumb:

    Anything lying around can be used for modeling if you put your mind to it.:)

    A unique structure Jim. Very well made. Now about those batteries, I guess if they corrode then it will add to the look of them as rust stains and such.
