Thanks Dallas, Ted & Mike! For your posts!

Well, I think I have this structure completed now.
Though I still have the lighting to install, but the actual building is now complete.





Ted, I took your suggestion about adding some guy wires to the smoke stack.
I also switched out the wooden loading dock for a cement one that wrapped around the corner of the building, to hook up with the fire escape and other door that is there.





The back of this factory will be facing the tracks that will eventually be running behind this structure from the pier.
So I did not embellish it with a lot of details.
The front of this factory will be facing out from the side of Magoun Pier, so it's the side you will see the most of when viewing this display layout.




Really looking forward to lighting this structure up! I think it's really going to look great at night.




Thanks for having a look!
I'll update again when I have the lights all installed & working.

Excellent job Greg. The color is really nice and at night it'll be spectacular. How many lights do you think will be necessary?

Thanks very much for your kind thoughts guys!

Frank, I'll be using 4 LED's to light the rooftop sign, 2 on each side of the sign.
And one light above each of the doors, and one more under the loading dock canopy above those door there, for a total of six for those.
And one or two more for some interior lighting
So about 12 LED's in total for this factory.

Greg

Magoun Pier is peerless! The concrete loading dock that wraps around to the side door and to the fire escape looks great. So does the corrugated roofing over the dock which is over the pier which is peerless...sorry, a wharfed sense of humor.

[font=Comic Sans MS]Wow Greg, I was only ribbing you on the stack as you were getting so much heat on the weather vane. I thought a change of topic was in order. But the guy wires are in order and look good. The cement dock is excellent and I love that deeper color blue on the stairwell enclosure. This is a beautiful build'. I can't wait to see how you light it up. It is going to look just great....And Greg, thanks for being such a good sport'... /font=Comic Sans MS]

Thanks Bill, Bob & Ted!

Bill, finally found someone here that is PUN to play with!

Ted, glad you liked your guy wires.
And I was thinking the reason the covered stairway was a darker blue, it was added to this structure after the last paint job was done on the rest this factory.
Same colour paint, it just hasn't had the time to fade as much yet.
