Thanks George, John, Mark! Appreciate the nice words--- there is a lot going on in this kit, I underestimated the amount of work with this one! Although I am enjoying the build, as I do with every FSM kit! The roof for the warehouse is pretty big and there are a lot of Campbell's Shingles to lay down-
    There are two more board on board construction builds left: the machine shop and the wood cutting shed. Plus lots of castings to paint.

Looking good!  You are starting to make me wish I hadn't gotten rid of my kit.

Thanks Bob and Curt!
    back to the workbench after a few days of work... more board on board construction for the fourth and final structure in the kit: the cutting shed.  I've been jumping back and forth on the 4 structures in order to keep things going and interesting (some framing here, some shingling there....).  I've got the base constructed using 1/2 plywood with some 3/4 inch pine bracing underneath... yeah, its heavy but super sturdy..  looking forward to placing the structures and scenery,,, not so much in painting the 2 pounds of castings that came in the kit!

thank you so much Tom and Karl, it means a lot to me getting positive feedback from all of the great modelers here on the forum!
    The cutting shed is a cool little structure that requires a bit of work. the framing is thin and fragile. the benches have to be built with strip wood, the little bench on the left is a casting that has strip wood attached for the legs.  the "chop saw" casting on the right is pretty cool and goes between the two cutting benches.  the roof needs all the framing done and then metal roofing over that. of course I need to detail the interior before the roof is completed to make things easier for myself!

thanks guys, I appreciate you all following along!
   Ok, so this shed is a great example of why FSM kits are so great- for the shed roof I had to cut strip wood and frame it all out, even though most of it is pretty well hidden (leaving a metal panel off will show some of the framing).  lesser kits would have a piece of cardboard here for the roof and then cover it with either rolled roofing or metal. this type of work really helps to advance one's skills.
    I decided to use a shelf casting that I got from Rusty Rails to add to the detail in the shed. I started to add some sawdust to the floor,,,,
