    Looks great! Why scratchbuild when you've got a good solution in a kitbash? That stone fence looks great too. :thumb: :thumb:

    That stone fence is great. Very good solution to a problem too! That building looks really nice.

    It looks good! A manufacturer spent a lot of money to make molds to do that building, there is no reason to scratch build when you can get the results you want from a kitbash.

    Looks real good. Nothing like a good kitbash.
    If you ever buy a Rix Products kit. The instructions do state that"We know most model railroaders don't build kits straight from the box. That why we've designed our kits for easy modification.." or something to the effect.

    Hello Why me:

    Pictures look great,. Keep up the great work. Love to see what it looks like when you've finished adding the vegetation and walkways.
    Whats the name of the company that made the parts.?

    I agree with Ralph - the stone wall is fantastic. How did you make that?

    Looks good to me, Mike! :thumb: :thumb: It's always nice to see a building big enough to actually need rail service, and a great way to fill-in the skyline, too. I also like that stone wall: a good find and a good idea for bending it to the shape you needed.
