Thanks for the tip Loren!

Bob P. : yes, I agree- its all about the "weathering"! Replicating the rust def. adds to the realism of models

John,
 Thanks...tried a new technique, and it worked out pretty well...There was a build some years back on Railroad Line forum, of the Crocker Bro, but that was many, many steps involved. mine is 4 easy steps, to get a similar look.

Loren, that building looks 100 years old and never saw a lick of paint or whitewash - my style of building/weathering. sweet! 8)

Howdy All,
 I got the grain elevator portion put together, along with the scale house. I have windows arriving on Monday, so I should be able to progress further next week.
Thanks for stopping by.....

I made some more progress, The windows are Tichy 8068, open and closed versions. The main building is put together, and the grain elevator is done. I used a different light source to shoot these photos, and the building has more of a brown, than gray look? work continues on.....thanks for stopping by....
