Oh man, I wanted to build the National Orange Company packing house in Riverside http://scph002.home.netcom.com/riverside_national1.jpg but somehow I got it wrong and ended up building this http://scph002.home.netcom.com/riverside_national2.jpg :mrgreen:. Seriously, I planned to build the front half of this really interesting and good looking structure, but then I thought that the backside would fit better on to my layout. The rear is not as beautiful as the front, but somehow I like it too. With the help of the scale drawings from the "Built in America" site, I could easily do HO scale drawings to build it perfectly to scale. The length of the HO model is 2 ft. I only made one major change to the structure as I mirrored it, because it will look better on my layout. BTW, Russ, thank you for the tip on the citrus modeling group a few days ago . I started by building the structure using .080" cardboard. Then I started the tedious job of cutting nearly 300 little boards and gluing them to the walls. 287 (or 279??:mrgreen boards and several hours later, it looks like that. Now I have to decide on the roofing material I want to use. They changed it several times on the prototype during the long years this structure existed, so I have the choice.
