Thanks.  This little kit is made out of cardboard!  Ingenious construction (with the exception of the joints).  The "stucco" is drywall compound.  It closely matches the American Warehouse shown in a shot of 1940s LA, so I made a decal for the sign.  Roof is Clever Models tarpaper texture.

The "leonard" building is done (save for a few detail parts I have on order):



Textures are from Lance Mindheim, Clever Models, and my own snatched from Google Street View.

You will surely have people arguing over what scale that is...!

Hey Tom,

Finally unpacked and here are the dimensions;

Packing houses    9 1/2 x 7,  7x7, 15x7 (this is the National Orange Packing House complex)
Ice Houses   10x9,  14x 61/2
Rat Hole district  (so far)  7x15 http://www.bobsgardenpath.com/Haas.html
Can't wait to see what you do with this stuff!!

I should have the window frames cut today to wrapp up most of the buildings.

Cheers

Joe
