Thanks for your comments @perezbill and @glakedylan !  I used Fasttracks paper templates for the switches, but did use the PointForm tool to make the frogs and points.

Here is some progress on the factory; doors and drainage are now in place, as are some HVAC units on the roof. 

I also finished the truck bay, which fits just right with some temporary "concrete" parking lot.  Second picture shows I am having some backdrop challenges, so don't look too closely there  :facepalm:

I ballasted the siding over the weekend, and am now working on the concrete pad for the semi trailers:

Those for sale signs are hard to beat for this type of thing. Do You might want to sand it down though, just to avoid issues with the printed finish.

You are not wrong @Ed Kapuscinski , a little 400 and 600 grit sanding took care of the lettering.  I scored some expansion joints and primed it with some Stynelrez (love that stuff).  Concrete color is next!

What are you using for concrete color?  My last can of Testor's Light Aircraft Gray is empty.  :(

@davefoxx , my go-to base color is Tamiya Deck Tan.  You can then age with wash and/or pigments to your taste.

This is a pretty good reference that turned me on to the Tamiya color:
