Once upon a long time ago, Fine Scale Miniatures was considered the finest of “craftsman” level kits. I wanted one (I wanted more than one …) so when the opportunity came around, I bought this kit.

And it sat.

But I finally got around to it.

I have another foundry kit (from Sierra West) so I decided to de-emphasize the “foundry” of this kit and build it as a generic manufacturing facility.

I left off the crane works and made the derelict track on the far side an active line.

I added a coal bin and an additional out building and placed the whole in a “yard”

So on to the results
