This is the first in a series to kit bash a Walthers DPM building into a used car dealer. I’ll begin with modifying the front wall.
Lets take a look at how the turntable operates with the roundhouse and the rest of the yard. This will be the last part in this series now that everything is working. Now it’s time to move on to the scenery work in another series.
I took a break from building this train yard to get the roundhouse done. Now that it’s done it’s time to get back to the yard.
This series has finally come to an end and it’s time to get this building installed on the layout. I’m not putting up a video this week, instead I thought I would put up some photos of the finished building. These photos show it on the layout and only wired into the power it is not permanently installed yet.
Here is part 12 in this series. I said last week was going to be the last in the series but I made a couple changes that I felt it was worth just 1 more quick video.
Now it’s time to light the roundhouse. I’m trying out something new for me to run some of the wire inside the roundhouse. This will be the last in this series. Now it’s back to the layout!
Let’s Talk about lighting! In this video I’ll start installing the led lights into the machine shop side of the building as well as look at ways to dim the lights to an acceptable level.
The paint and the 73 windows are done it’s now time to look at interior details and lighting.
This will be the last time with the airbrush and finally get some age on this building. Then we can turn our attention to the windows.
In this video I thought I would talk a little about weathering the building with an airbrush in a little more detail.
