Here's a few pics of my newest scratchbuilt factory/bakery.

BBB is named after the newest member of our TTRAK/NTRAK group.

This pic shows both the boxcar loading doors and the truck loading doors.One of the boxcar doors (the far left one) will be open with a hilo and a couple of LPB's in the doorway.I haven't decided if one of the truck doors will be open or not.

If anyone is interested in the stats the building is 16" long 3 1/8" wide and 2" tall at the track.I thought I'd taken a pic with the roof but it ain't in the camera. :(

Hi catt, that's a great looking building, and you're making a nice job of it. Hope you will keep us posted as it progreses. What materials are you using? I like the transition from siding to cement, very nice effect.

Cheers Willis

The building's core is .060" thick black styrene that I get for a very good price for a pretty good sized piece,The siding is Evergreen metal siding and the roof will be Evergreen Board & Batten siding.

Left to do is rooftop ductwork a sign or two and the truckdock driving area.I am comtemplating adding on to the building on the right end with a semi building flat so I can model offices and other sorts of "stuff" :lol:

I hope to be posting pictures tomorrow of the building setting in place on the module.

OOPS! Still to come is the hilo and the LPBs in the doorway.

The road to the left goes to a scrapyard (not yet modeled) on my buddy's module.

Alex,I got the idea for the roofline from the shop next to the one I work in.The main difference that building is a heck of alot taller than this one would be.There will definately be a roof top ventilation system on this place ,just not yet.
