Hot take - use faller printed brick sheets or similar as an insert to give the sides brick. Lots of measuring and fancy cutting to get around the windows and stonework, but should have acceptable results.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

Well all I saw was 150 and I thought that was close enough to 160, but it was 1:50  :facepalm: well whatever it is way too small, about 25 N scale feet long. I broke the door ripping the supports off.

Chris, 1:50 would be much larger than N scale. Close to 0 scale (1:48). I wonder if you meant to write 1:500?

I think 1:150?

That would still put it larger than N Scale, which it clearly is not.

I'm puzzled. I grabbed that and it is HUGE in Chitubox slicer and imported into tinkercad. Definitely O scale.
You resized it, right?

One of them was large the rest fit so I just printed.

I found another that is a Sketchup file so I could change it. I can't change a .stl file.

It is 1:1 scale and I've already resized it to N, but there is no inside to it so I need to make the wall a thickness to print.

Went ahead and put a coat of white primer on it to see what we've got a little better.  First I sprayed the interior flat black, and also a coat of black on the exterior to prevent eventual light leaks.



The flat white makes it clear that there is more work to do to get this closer to ready for prime time.  Still a lot of stray "hairs", and the window mulls on the front are clearly lumpier than they should be.

But the paint also highlights the striations in the "brick" section, which I think will work fine... the trick will be flattening out the cut stone sections at the base and cornices.

I think I'll try applying a coat of matte Mod Podge to see if that provides the necessary fill to smooth that out.  That should work well to clean up the quoins along the windows, not sure about the flat field at the base though.  We shall see...

I'm sorry, But that print is hot garbage.
Maybe if someone got the files, and printed it on a higher resolution printer, it would be better.

That's similar to the print quality on the machine we had in college 20 years ago.

Yeah...I've been trying to see what Lee sees in this print, but I can't.

I know Lee can make chicken salad out of chicken *****, but this one gives me pause.

A background building... behind a bunch of much bigger buildings?

I'm thinking it would look good demolished, on fire, as a background building... behind a bunch of much bigger buildings...

Update.  There's nothing to update.  I haven't done anything with it since I sprayed it white.
It's too big to make sense as a background building, and frankly, I'm not building anything big enough to push it that far to the rear.

I'm still going to work on that chicken salad, though, and see what I can do to justify the $30 that evaporated in its general direction...
