since I’m still unsure about the final layout plan in the upper garden, I spend some more attention to Ronja Springs. At the right loading spur, I announced some industry. So let’s get started. Piko had a special offer for the furniture works “Franz Huber” (aka Mr. Mann’s Cannery). Since the space allows only background relief building, the Piko kit is a perfect base for kit-bashing, while the building is build from modular pieces, which can be rearranged very easily.
Beside the kit, I ordered a bag of additional columns to attach the wall segments together. While the cream-uni-colored structure looked somewhat boring, I decided to paint all the embossed bricks. It was quite some work, but turned out very nice. I also painted the corner and connecting columns.
The last photo shows a first test-fit. The whole structure will get a foundation to raise the door in the center to the level of the freight cars. This will become the loading door for boxcars.
Will be continued next week.
