    :thumb: Using the Walthers Bralick building, this is what I think it may have looked in days gone by. I will use it as a background building on my layout. Hope you enjoy it.

    Long, tall and narrow is the way I like to build them as you can cram in more scenery to google at.

    With grass growing in the sidewalks and paper and trash lying around gives it a Hey, I have been here awhile and am still in use look to it.

    People coming and going, workers shuffling around, the grungy look give this building a back street look to and old town business.

    Hope you enjoyed this, I have to run for I have another project to start. Later friends, :wave: Jim

    Nice overall look of industrial grittiness. Love the details too!

    Looks Good. All the weathering you done to it makes it look like it's been there for years. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    I love it Jim. This shows how much you can pack into a narrow building that just looks fine thank you when viewed from the front. nobody should claim they have no room for an industry. Nice finishing touches.
