    Yes my airbrush compressor broke working on getting another.
    Those Vallejo paints really work well with a brush as you can see.

    Great Ed, colors look super . Just a tip for your next roof project , instead of elastic bands ( which can easily ruin a structure in seconds , don't ask ) I use small bags of ballast or sand to weigh down a roof , they will adjust to the roof lines and will only press downward. The elastic bands work 4 out of 5 times but that 5th time when you come into the train room and your structure is a flat pile of wood held together by elastic is not a nice sight to see.

    More progress,,
    I think I selected the wrong size in the photo Resizer, I'll fix that for the next photos

    Building the elevator for the structure.
    This was a PITA but I'm not surprised as the folks at Branch Lane told me this part of the build would be.
    This elevator has 20 parts of which 16 are either really small, flimsy or both. The right photo has 14 of them shown.

    Beginning assembly of the truck loading conveyor.

    Almost done with these two pieces.

    Almost there. Here’s the main building. Only thing left are the roof vents, touch up paint and weathering.
    Also have to glue the roof down better.

    This the truck loading addition. Need to add the trim yet and I’m still trying to decide whether to place it on the end or side.
    I still have to build the conveyor from the track to the elevator which I will do later today when I put it on the layout to check the fit.

    Ok Jan, ask and you shall receive.

    All the touch ups done and all of the building of the structure is done with the exception of signs and weathering.
    I added my grain elevator which still needs roofing and ramps to the scene as well as some cars.
    I was working on the main road along side which runs to the bridge (almost). Tomorrow I will add gravel parking lots around the buildings in the scene.

    EDAF8C60-F00D-4575-8E3D-331D6D1B9DA6.jpg

    Left to right,
    Branchlines Drayton House finished except for a couple of trim pieces and teensy weensy stairs
    Willmodels Buddy’s Waffle House which I’m going retail as an auto parts store,Willmodels Millie’s Cafe both of these need some more work but not much, a little more painting,windows and some signage.

    Next up is this Northeastern Sheet Metal Shop.

    The Willmodels are great little kits aren't they, we need more of these so that every layout is not full of DPM's. Oh and I expect a build thread on the Northeastern kit. Well at least a lot of pictures.

    Yes they are nice resin kits. Problem is they aren’t answering emails so getting an issue worked out or getting some more of their products are questionable right now.
