I started my Walthers Interstate Fuel & Oil project a few days ago. I did not build the kit per instructions. So far so good I see the building wash coat was to strong. It's only an alcohol wash I'll remove and do it over. Overwise I like how it all came out. I still need to add the details, pumping house and rail car platform for unloading the oil cars.

That piping really is outstanding and adds to the model's realism. The building's wash coat looks good to me for a industrial office that isn't likely to see a hose and some soapy water. A little vegetation in and around the building and you hit it!

Are you going to add some type of loose paving material around the facility?
