He does like the signs a bit.  But if you're handy with a decent image editor (Gimp, Photoshop, etc.), there's enough blank material near the signs that you can remove them.

Here's an example of what I was talking about.  One of his designs (John's Feeds) looks like this:



There's plenty of corrugated wall that can be used to cover up the signs and have it look the same.



This takes some practice, but it's not really that hard. :)

Sounds like a plan to me, Phil. :)  I'll do up one and post it here as soon as I get a little bit.

Looks great.  I use Paint Shop Pro to modify and rescale paper buildings.

I had a play on Gimp last night and this is the results so far:

Started with:



then with a little playing came up with:



The roller doors and the stack came from another file.
