Dave if you notice in the video the building overhangs the foundation on both ends.

You did a good job by extending the foundation.

Water putty is drying...

Once it's dry, I'll repaint and I think the patch will blend in nicely.

You're welcome Dave.

I found his video's a bit long winded but interesting at certain points. I watched his video of making buildings just using blocks and then gluing on the exterior shell very interesting.

Well, I hope I didnít sound critical; I was hoping to strike a balance. I did watch most of it and will watch part 2 when it becomes available. I noticed he was unhappy with warpage in the walls and I want to see if everything goes together ok. Sort of a cliffhanger.

On the Video; I find it very interesting. For ME, I don't understand why you spend that kind of money for a kit and not get the full benefit of all that detail. I build kits in multiple too. Like Freight cars. But, two complex structures isn't my cup of tea.

On The Shop Kit. I would recommend the building of a story at a time. Start with the main framing. Do not add the floor supports for the 2nd story until you have all the machinery and line drives in place. You need all the access you can get when you add the belting to machines. Yes add lighting and make the roof and at least one wall removable for viewing.

Structure definitely fits better on the extended foundation.

I wonder what the guy in the video would make of the fact that the first post in this build thread was back in 2012?!?
