I think your models are the greatest. They actually fit together like a glove. Put me on your list for any new G-scale bldgs you may have coming out. I'm sending you a picture and you have my authorization to publish it if you see fit. This picture was taken at night. The bldg. has interior lighting in it. I just started into the Garden railroad about 6 months ago. I call it "SMALLTOWN RAILROAD" as it will have a very small town in it with a lot of water scenes. THANKS and keep up the great work.

Construction notes from Jim - I painted my buildings with Williams exterior acrilic and applied with brush. I also used Plastruct plastic weld glue for assembly.

Richard writes about building our buildings 'By the way, the small steel-mill building was built full-depth, but the long one (about 43 inches long) was built as a half-model. Mirrors are being cut for me, and the building will be right-up flush against the mirrored surfaces, so that if you view it from an angle the half-end is reflected, and the building appears to be full-depth. I tried it with a medicine-cabinet mirror, and it works fine. I like working with the styrene, it saws easily and cements with ridiculous ease using Duco Plastic Model Cement. Plastruct's "Plastic Weld" was used only when cementing dissimilar plastics; it dries faster than you can put the pieces together. You said to prime everything, and I got excellent results with aerosol paints that say explicitly that they bond to plastic. Dark primer was used, so when the panels were over-painted with Benjamin Moore color samples (2 ounce jars available in any paint department in an astonishing range of hues) using a foam brush, the dark scored lines or brick (really shingle) texture can be seen if desired, depending on brushing technique. So, the steel-mill was painted the same color as in Grif Teller's's calendar-painting, but I thought a tan steel mill ought to have grime descending from the windows. That was done easily by putting a little more pressure on the foam brush in downward strokes, to let more of the dark primer show through. It is very satisfying to use your materials.'
