Hello Bob, thanks for the kind words.

Hey Karl, I'm glad that you liked my scratch-build. This was the largest one that I have done and I had a great time building it.

Great job on the sign and the whole kit and caboodle.  :)


Jeff

Hello Jeff, the sign was one of the features from the great Foscale kit that served as my inspiration for this build and I'm really pleased with how it came out.

Hello Bob, thanks for the kind words. I wanted to attempt a large scratch-build and this freight house worked out very well for me.

I'm really happy with how the large roof-top sign turned out.

This finishes off my REA freight house scratch-build thread. This was my largest scratch-build to date by far and it was a lot of work with many different sub-assemblies, but by taking things one step at a time I was able to get through it without to much weeping and gnashing of teeth. My thanks to Doug at Foscale for the great kit that he put out that was my inspiration for this build. Now it's on to the next one. Thanks to everyone who looked in and for the nice comments along the way.

Jeff,

You did a fantastic build on the REA Freight House. It truly looks great in that location. I hope my FOS turns out a good as your scratch build.

Hello Tom, thank you for the nice comments, they mean a lot coming from you. I'm certainly pleased with the build and I'm sure that yours will also look very much at home on your layout when you get around to building it.

With it being such a big, dominating structure I think your placement is perfect!

Looks great.

Cheers, Mark.

Hello Mark, I'm glad you like my scratch-build. It is a large structures but I already had a Walthers plastic freight house in that location, so I had the space for it. I like my wood building much better than the plastic one it replaced.
