Below is a building flat for my industrial area. It's made from 2 of the Walthers Red Wing Mill kits, each cut in half to make a flat. I altered it up some to make it less symetrical - (1) top small building moved to the other side of the opposite main building; (2) both chimneys placed on a single powerhouse building and the other powerhouse building moved to the roof; (3) made an expanded dock on the left side of the dock area so that it came all the way out to the rails. The dock on the right area of the dock area is how the kit comes as built; and (4) added a water tank to the left side of the building to balance it out visually. I wired it up for lights as well, since I love night shots. Overall footprint is 4.24" x 42".

Eddie,
Boy, you've been busy again. It is great to see a large industry on a layout. You did a fine job of using the kit to make the background building. (I love the night shots.)

Very impressive. Now, how do I get that onto my 4' x 1' mini?

This is an incredible kitbash, Eddie! It's well balanced for visual appeal, yet the entire structure looks very plausible, as though it just "grew" that way through expansion.[:-thumbu]

Your nighttime photos are really neat. I always enjoy seeing your night shots.

Eddie
Great flat[:-thumbu][:-thumbu][:-thumbu]. It sure is BIG, imposing and just the ticket. 3D flats seem to be the in thing right now with a lot of the kit manufacturers but it sure looks like you came up with a better idea. Sets the old gears to thinking and grinding away.

Looks great Eddie. I picked up a Walthers kit at the last show that I attended that I'm going to bash into a flat. Instead of going long though I am going to make it taller. Thanks for the inspiration.

That's going to be a great addition to the layout. Good job.

As you think, so will you be.
