Clean work, nice detail. Don't forget the pigeons on the roof ledge. Finish it with oil to get that nice machine shop aroma :thumbs:

That's looking real good, Ray! Like the concrete pad.

The roof section over the crane area is done in corrugated metal and the rest of the roof is done in tar and membrane roofing.
With an old building like this it has had several roof repairs over the years.

The loading dock if finished with a poured concrete base and a painted platform.

Boy Ray, that really looks great and the roof aging and repairs look very realistic.

That's a huge attention to detail with the roof. I would've never even thought of making it seem like there have been repairs made to it.
How long did that take you to build?

I probably only have about 5 or 6  hours actual building time in it so far.

That looks nice Ray. Is your roof section going to be removable to view the interior or just peep through the windows & doors. I built an Engine House for my HO scale loco's & would like the roof removable but a lot of trouble. I think I'll just allow viewing through the windows & doors. I don't model O&G scale but I make a corrugated metal roof product you might like. The scale is mid range & I have a lot of happy modelers that like it. I built this General Store back in the winter to sell using this roofing. PM me with your address If you think you would like it.

Not even completed and you're already adding on. Related to my wife by chance, Ray?    :D
