On the picture above is the First Title Insurance Company Photo showing the prototype packing house
and here is the Walthers representation of it as the Valley Citrus Packers. At least four of these kits will be necessary to come close to the real thing. My limited real estate nevertheless allows for a two kit long structure. This will be the right side of the prototype picture.
The wall segments of the kit are beveled to form a rectangular structure with one wall piece for every side. For my packing house I had to join three sections with the stepped wall in the center.
I sanded the beveled edges away except for the left edge of the straight section and the right edge of the other straight section.
I trimmed the alignment tabs away using a pair of Xuron cutters.
Then I sanded the edges smooth.
I reinforced the wall sections with .040" plain styrene pieces from my scrap box glued to the back of the wall sections. I clamped everything together until the glue dried.
Next step will be painting and assembling the packing house.
Stay tuned for the next installment.
