    :) Fred sent me this great backdrop building to use, and with the inspiration of his design and also the inspiration of Spitfires tractor plant here's what I did.


    I cut out the section in the red square and used it for the upper office floors, the wall section went in where the cutout was to gain 2 more loading doors and removed the dock as the track will run right next to the building serviceing the 4 loading doors. I put in new widow glazing, added duct work, water tower, added a small tool shed to roof, vents and relocated his smoke stacks. And of course I had to repaint and weather. There were a couple of holes I couldn't get fill right so I covered them with jewel sets to act as security lights.


    Any way I added signs and it became a John Deere Plant. What do ya think? I believe it will make a fine addition to my next section of my layout. Thanks so much Fred (Dash 10) :unsure: Jim

    Excellent! Nice paint job and cool details with the pipes, water tower, signs, etc. I'd say you made a very neat looking unique structure for your layout! So, how many coils of steel can my layout's mill put you down for? :)
