I've always wondered why tool sheds are always made just a little bit too small to hold all the junk that goes inside them.  Your shed is an excellent example and I really, really like it.  It looks like it would fit nicely next to the Midlands engine facility on the Atlantic & Southern RR.

Fantastic work, Karl. What is the gray sandy looking ground cover you are using?  I like it.

The tool shed looks terrific, Karl!

The red tone sets it apart nicely from the norm.  I really like that chemical reaction on those pipes too.

Cheers, Mark.

It's not that tool sheds are too small.  It's that "mess expands to exceed the space available".  If you build a bigger tool shed, you'll just get more junk.

Hey Dave:

You just might be right. More room for more junk.

Rigging & Tool sheds.  A perfect match and you really did a great job painting the details and placing them.
