Took a picture of this a couple days ago and just had to build it for a diorama. I made the walls out of 1/32 and 1/64 ply and I am covering them with a lot of N Scale 1 x 6 boards. Worst part was making window frames, but that is done. Will follow up when finished.

Don, its a good job you have some photos of the prototype, no-one would believe the shape otherwise! Looks like it is going to be a fine model.

Looking like a great scratchbuild coming up... keep the pics flowing, sometimes those crooked walls are harder to duplicate than the straight ones.

It's looking good, Don. What's that bottle looking item with the long thin spout thing on top?

Don, nice start on your scratchbuilding project. It's not been long before you start modelling this interesting prototype. Following this thread and seeing how you manage to hold all these not right-angled walls together should be interesting...

Thanks for the comments fellows.

George, that is a small glue bottle that I had when I built indoor model airplanes, it is great inasmuch as it can put a minute amount right where you want it. Unfortunately, the gentleman how made them passed on several years ago. Next to it is hypo that I use for white glue.

Don,

You are doing a great job of replicating that old building.

Thanks Don. It looks like a handy gadget.

Don: Somehow I missed this thread until today. What a great building. Have you made much more progress?? If so, I would love to see some pictures.
