Kitbash Your Way to Model Building Freedom


In this week's video, I look at how I built the Walthers Modern Transload Terminal kit in N scale to fit a specific space on my 2x4 foot N scale project layout. Kitbashing these type of warehouse structures is easy to do, and a good way to start out on building custom structures.


Besides the Walthers kit, I used pieces of chipboard (the kind you find on the back of notepads or a thicker version of cereal boxes) various paints, plastic solvent, model putty to fill in the seams between pieces, and a paper roof texture from teamtrackmodels.com


This is the chipboard I use: https://amzn.to/41m1w29

And the plastic putty: https://amzn.to/3LPSy7o

Marvelous job! You are an excellent teacher! No added fluff and very clear instructions. You've inspired me to scratch build a Walthers structure.
