Finishing up a new kit...What do you think it is?

I'm just about to start the instructions.

I was curious what you all thought it might be. I'm not looking for the correct answer (if you know what it is please don't reveal it), but trying to get ideas for what people can use it for.

This is the first of two halves, each one can be used as a stand-alone structure, and you can complete one and add the other later.

The rockwork can be prepared the same as my brickwork, with Bragdon Enterprises and Dullcote. At the bottom is an example with Dullcote for mortar lines.

Here is the prototype:



Still ironing out the fit of everything....

A brewery?  But then again no railroad loading docks.

Beautiful work.

Dave, time and time again, you keep producing these amazing models of very interesting structures.  And just when I thought that Finer Iron building was the best looking laser-cut N scale structure I have ever seen you come out with this! Regardless of whatever it depicts, I want it! And I don't own have a layout!  :)

You have again outdone yourself with the rock walls, and all the added-on annexes. Dare I say these buildings have a soul? Your models are like something I would expect from George Sellios in H0 scale, but yours look even more realistic (less whimsical than George's work). Maybe because you actually model  real existing building?  I don't know, but whatever it is, keep on doing what you're doing.  You are a true laser-master!  I really mean it!

Yes, I'm gushing here - I just can't help myself.  :D

Wow! Fantastic.

I see this as the original brick structure being maybe a wagon works, with the chassis built on the first floor and the wagon box on the second. As time goes on the building is repurposed and added on to to make a small metal foundry that manufactures say small gasoline engines. Cast iron in, small engines out.

Well, let's see.
Original building built in the late 18th Century. 
Powerhouse added sometime in the 19th Century.
The larger addition is 20th Century (corrugated metal and squared off windows) but may have replaced an older framed structure.

So, as a guess....(and since wagon works is already taken by Kentuckian up above- which I think a good possibility)... I am going with firearms manufacturer.  Hand built muskets for the Revolutionary War.  Added steam powered machines in the 19th Century.  Added a framed building during the Civil War to accommodate higher volume production assembly.  Building probably repurposed early 20th century.  Fire destroyed frame building and damaged some parts of main building- resulting in reconstruction with steel frame and corrugated metal.

At least, that would be my story if I were modeling a railroad in one of the original 13 states.

Where in the country is that? My guess is a tannery.
