There are several interesting details in the kit.  This one is a set of pieces that make up the base of a large stack.  It's glued to a dowel for painting.

Thanks, Greg.  This is a vent.  I airbrushed it aluminum.  But the aluminum is too shiny.  I used a dark grey Panpastel on the right side (knocked off one of the "holders" as well).  Used grey pastel chalks on the left side (the far left is the original aluminum).  Similar effect, but the Pan Pastel went on a bit smoother, and since there was some rust on the sponge, a mild rust effect is on the right.  I'm going to try to replicate this on the rest of it as well.

This is a roof entryway.  The pieces fit together perfectly.  The brown siding is their "corrugated".  It's more embossed on the paper than raised.  I prefer the Northeastern product, but will use this as it's in the kit.  Need to remove the glue smudge on the door.   ::)

looking real good Jeff! You gotta love the pan pastels for weathering, I could never achieve with paint the weathering/rust effects that I can get with the  pastel colors.

Thanks for looking in, guys.  Minor problem with capping the top of the walls.  The pieces they give you aren't wide enough (first picture) .  This may be due to the different ways to build the cornices.  Putting it to the front (as they did on their model) exposes the top of the wall at the back.  I preferred exposing the front top piece, so I used left over wall seam cover pieces and they fit just right (second picture).

Each piece had to again be custom cut, but it's finished.  Now time to weather the walls.

Thanks, Vince.  I'm not ambitious enough today to weather the structure.  Built a couple of pallets that are included as details.  The "runners" are a bit too long, as the first pallet seemed too big, especially when I compared it with some others I have here.  Plus, I only had 3 top boards left.   So I cut the one back to size and the second will be a couple of boards short.

Thanks Greg and John and John.   :) Using some of the pictured raw umber, I weathered the outside lightly.  The oil paint mixes with water or oil (I don't understand it, either).  If you put a small dab on the wall and drag it down with a wet brush you can get some interesting effects.  I've attached the outside ductwork as well.  Working on the detail parts, like the brick stack and the small coal door in the one picture.  An interesting and usually neglected detail.  I was horrified that the sign with the frame around it wrinkled up when I washed the sides with the umber/water mixture.  It flattened out afterward.   8) I attached all three signs with a glue stick, and the other sign stayed flat.
