With a bit of tweeking, the 8 1/8x1/8 rare earth magnets are holding the roof deck in place.  This allowed me to finish off the weathering of the smoke jacks and the roof.

I added the bay doors just for show,  They are just sitting there.  When this gets placed in the layout, ground dirt added, then I can add the hinges and glue the doors in the open position.
This build is done.

Bob,

It came out great!  I really like the subtle colors and how you managed to work out all the issues with parts that didn't fit exactly as expected.  Excellent modeling!

Thank you all for the compliments. 

I need to take on something a bit easier this next go round.  I have a need for a feed store and office. Maybe something like the Chooch Feed and Grain Store combined with a Campbell's Richmond Barrel or Seebold Mfg combination?

Do your own scratchbuild!  Get some Mt Albert or NESL clapboard, Tichy doors & Windows, and someone's shingles/roofing (lots of choices there).  Also be sure to get some 1/8" square for bracing, and probably 1/16" square and 1/16x1/32" for trim.

Sketch out a building on paper, or if necessary, do a to-scale set of drawings.  (I use PowerPoint for that, I'm ashamed to admit!)

Oh I will.  But just not for this.  I have a minimum of 4 depots that will have to be scratchbuilt.  A total of 8 if I get to the upper level.  No two are alike.

Like a lot of others here, I have a ton of unbuilt kits that have been saved as possibilities for the layout.
