    To make doors and windows I use Archistories modified components:

    They were installed to the walls:

    Some doors will be opened so I made some interriors. The floor and the boxes are made of balsa wood:

    Thank you Scott,
    There is still a lot to be done to finish it.

    One of the main products reloaded in the inland harbour was sugar. I assume it was stored in big bags (sacs). I think those bags were covered by some tilts. I made this kind of load by myself. The main shape is made of balsa wood:

    IMG_5750.jpg

    It is covered by a small piece of tissue. I apply dilluted white glue with the acrylic paint and let it dry. It is still waiting to to get dry:

    I added cranes. I ordered them from https://www.modellbau-laffont.de/ Those cranes were some time ago a part of Marklin warehouse laser cut kit.

    I'll echo those comments--I like how he uses common materials (cardboard) to make some of the parts.

    I'll make that three. I like how you use various materials and manufacturers' products to shape your vision of what it should look like. That is my approach as well. I really like the loads of sugar. What is the tarp made of? I'm guessing wet tissue paper. Jim

    Tarp is made of the tissue. I made it wet using mixture of water, white glue and acrylic paint. For a good look I used two layers of tissue.

    Zdrada,

    What color acrylic paint did you use for the tarps?

    zdrada,
    Like the tarps. I tried looking up the cranes on the modellbau site, but did not see them.

    Those cranes were part of Marklin's warehause kit 89807 (http://ztrainsweekly.com/2017/07/20/new-release-build-kit-marklin-89807-freight-depot/). This kit was actually made by Laffont. Cranes are not part of their regular offer. I send an e-mail to them asking to cut some of them for me and get a fast positive answer.

    It is time to make a roof for the warehouse. To make this building rigid I decided to use thin plywood to make main part of the roof. First part is in place:

    IMG_5765.jpg

    I started to make final outer layer of the roof. 500 grade sandpaper strips were used to imitate roofing felt:

    IMG_5766.jpg
    The other part of the roof was equipped first with LEDs to illuminate interior:

    IMG_5763.jpg

    Second part of the roof was installed:

    IMG_5768.jpg

    To imitate tar joints of the felt I used white glue mixed with black acrylic paint. Gutters were added:

    Matt - this is a good idea I think I will make decals with licenseplates for this diorama cars.

    In the meantime I made another type of crane - for the upper level of the warehause using some plastic profiles, metal discs, wire and 3D printed hook:

    Assembly and paint job done:

    IMG_5798.jpg

    I added vertical rain water pipes. They covered imperfect joints in the corner of the building:
