    @Chicago Rail where did you get the metal tray you are building on? Is it commercially available? Thanks

    And platform floor assembled.


    Sidewalls assembled , paper pushed in between ceiling and floor to keep pressure while glue dries.





    Back wall assembled.

    Same view with trim added on roof and walls.


    More photo's of the finished freight station. I took a lot of photo's with my new camera , I did some with the macro lens and with a 18-55mm lens ( a bit further away from the object ) . The next few builds I will be experimenting with macro lens and more light and higher diaphragm, for just a bit deeper focus, and then maybe learn stacking.

    There is of course a small flaw in the design, the doors and windows on the sides are too low compared to the front and rear wall, something you probably won't notice once it's on a layout. It would have been great if they were at the same height with some stairs or steps ( steps are in the kit as are stone foundations ).

    I was digging around in my “stash” today looking for something in one of my other builds and came upon two items that peaked my interest.

    After finding some plastic metal doors and some brick sheets I started looking at the station to see how hard it was going to to install because the door openings are a bit to small for the door so do they require some adaptation.
    This where I found an advantage to using the Aileen’s Fast Grab tacky glue. Turns out unlike ca or yellow wood glue this glue is still pliable and has some give so it was fairly easy to separate the pieces.

    Here are the pieces and a piece of the brick sheet to the right. I carved the doors to widen them up a bit.

    Following along with @Janbouli changing the kit up a bit I took these metal doors and painted them with some Model Master Steel paint.

    I then plan to use the brick sheet to “brick up” the rear windows/doors
