Demeritt Cannery Completed

I put the finishing touches on the Demeritt Cannery yesterday. The pictures show it sitting on my modeling desk on its Gator board "sub base." I will add some dirt/gravel grass textures to this when it's installed on the layout. 
The building is almost completely styrene. One of the freight doors on the can storage building (the gambrel roof portion to the far right in the photo above) is scribed wood. The rest of the structure is styrene. 
As I mentioned in a previous post, the covered "dump" pit was an interesting feature of the building. To capture the look of the steel grating that covered the pit when it wasn't in use I utilized some Tichy fire escape material. 
The freight doors have Tichy boxcar door hardware hinges with a small handle at the base made from wire. 

Paint is Vallejo "Blue Grey" with some other grays dry brushed to create the look of paint peel and cracking. Weathering is light gray, Payne's Grey, and black Pan Pastels with some rust tones on the metal hardware on the door tracks and hinges.
