Your build looks wonderful, Loren!

Here are a few ideas for your next project.

Firstly, here are some cool kits that we almost never see being built.

Master Creations - Minerva Caskets, Hyde Pulp Mill, Coon Gap Sawmill, Muldoon's Distillery.

A cool kit I haven't seen built for a long time...

Bar Mills - Gritty McDuffs.

And one from another scale...

Stoney Creek Designs - B. Johnsons Leather Works.

We are guaranteed to enjoy whatever you choose to build.

Cheers, Mark.
Mark,
 I will consider some of those options.....Thanks for the compliment....

I really enjoyed the 10 pages of build of the emporium seafood, and I must say well done indeed.

Probably the trickiest part to do was the scratch built shipping doors, which originally were cast metal pieces, so your equaling the skill level of George S. himself, because he had to make them to take molds.

I also scratch built the seafood company, not sure if I did it in HO or O scale..  Not sure what I did to produce the tower bell or not into it.   Maybe a loco from O bell.     I also wanted to do the riverside wharf structure and I see bar mills produces it.

I also did a couple of other of georges designs into O..........fsm #275 duffys coal and also #290 or 295 fox run milling co just the main building.  Those things in O  become  real estate hogs quick.

Mike,
 Thanks for the great compliment. I am proud to say that the build is now part of Doug Foscale's layout. (see Fos Facebook page from back in July) I only scratch build doors now. They are pretty easy to do, and you cannot get the same look from anything plastic, or metal.
