More Prototype Ideas

All those great model railroad skills might be useful for more than just building models. How about keeping older industrial buildings looking suitably worn for Hollywood filming?

I saw some cool industrial buildings in the Web tv series The Guild in the latest season. It turns out their shooting location is a collection of old LA buildings explicitly set up as movie locations. Check out this photo of one of the exteriors to see a mix of brick and corrugated steel buildings, varying rooflines, and lots of interesting loading doors and overhangs. Bonus points if you can figure out how to kitbash these buildings using commercially available kits.

We ought to thank Hollywood for another way to keep buildings like this in use, otherwise they would have been torn down for generic office buildings long ago.

And if you've got any rusty pieces of corrugated steel in your backyard, send 'em down so they can patch their also rusty shed roof with matching pieces!
