Great looking build - that's a lot of windows. I can see why it was 6 months.  You need to pick a brick building with no windows on the sides for your next build.

Tommy,
 Thanks for the comment...the windows are 8217 6/6. The brick material is combination of three vendors. The building pieces are Monster Model works aged brick, the lower portion under the smoke stack is New England Brownstone hydrocal brick, and the top little section is CC crow leftovers. I wish I could get a feature in a railroad magazine....If anyone out there has any contacts, this will be on display next week at the ****Danbury Museum   43 Main St Danbury, Ct.****** Thanks again for the great comment..

John,
 You are so right, in fact I started an FOS kit yesterday (First kit that I will have ever built). It has 6 windows......That will be showing up in the kit building forum soon...
Thanks for the great comment....
