    I believe it was an old Plastruct kit. It was an all styrene kit. There is a water tower in Poteet Texas very similar to this (except full size).

    Poteet Texas.

    Thanks.

    Thank you Tracy for detailing your weathering technique. I use washes ( paintbrush or airbrush ) for all my structures. I use pastel chalks on some rolling stock.

    Fifer: That elevator is quite impressive. Are all the details on the silos roof included with the kit or did you superdetailed it?

    Midniteflyer1: Well done, nice brick color on the Ridgeway Paint Company building.
    I'm looking for some chainlink fence, yours looks very good. Is it from a commercial kit or scratchbuilt.

    gpa: Nice version of merchant's row II. I have it too ( see page 11 of this thread ) so it's interesting to see the work of other fellow modellers with that structure.
    I call that structure the "village idiot" because every village has an idiot and it looks like almost any layout has a merchant's row II structure.

    The outdoor transformer came from an old Con-Cor substation kit. And, there are some splotches of glue on the wall that really show up in this photo...I need to fix those!

    Does it count if all you use is some trusses out of a Walthers kit and the rest is scractbuilt?

    Thank you Mike ( Fifer ) and Midniteflyer1 for taking some of your valuable time to reply and supply additional information.

    Midniteflyer1 thanks for the link to Gold Medal I for sure will order their chainlink quite soon.

    Steve ( Fishplate ) that
    Northern Light & Power
    is a masterpiece.
    I am ( was after seeing your work ) reluctant to do some brickwork in N scale because at 1/160 the mortar generally lines look too thick. Could you please detail how you did the mortar lines ?

    Jacques,
    Please see this post for a brief description of how I did the mortar lines. This method was described in RMC many years ago.

    Still looking for more Walthers structures. Just wish they bring a few out of retirement.
