 Looks great David! Love to see these in N someday. I have heard it is in the plans, but the sooner the better!

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

I personally love the way Dave finished it. I have been wanting to finish a side with the 'ghost' image of a previous building. This really stands out. Good job!

BTW, I 2nd the dumpster.

If it was as easy as just blowing up the drawings, we'd have done them by now. Unfortunately it's not that simple; nearly all of the art would need to be re-rendered. Plus, so far all of the Z scale kits fit on single molds; in N scale, most of the molds would have to be broken up to fit in my equipment, which increases the casting labor. So, it'll happen, just not tomorrow.

z-scale is good for forced perspective...
