I had never heard that term "re-kitted itself" until quite recently on another forum. I chuckled to myself as I thought how it certainly applied to this structure.
I re-built the roof with styrene, and added about a dozen or so details from the Walthers kit. Across the front facade, I put a few vents, added on some piping, some of which came from a kit and some are just made from scrap sprue material of the same diameter. All of that has been painted to appear to be rusty. There's also some conduit made from steel wire and some from styrene rod.
I decided early on in this project that I'd like to blank out a bunch of the individual window panes to simulate fiberglass panes. To do this I cut up blue and white trim film and laid that over random panes. That sure took a while, but I like the appearance it gives.
The spur track is code 83 now, ballasted, with weeds growing, and there's a fair bit of litter scattered along it as well. And I made and added about 44 inches of chain link fencing to run along the property line as well. I also printed "No Trespassing" signs and put them on the fence.
So, all that said, here it is...
I've got my sights set on cleaning up the area in the foreground next. But, the first step for that will be to get a replacement switch for the one we see here. I guess that will have to be my priority on my next trip to the local hobby store, 60 miles away. In the meantime though, I've got lots of other projects to look after.
