My dog ate my homework
Author: wingomann

I’m building an old Revell Superior Bakery kit and my dog got ahold of one of the windows and chewed it up. So like any old building that loses a window, I boarded it up with some scrap wood I had in my scrap box. It turned out pretty good and has gotten some laughs.

Wow, I think I can see grain in that plywood! The color looks right too.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I'd rather she chew on your window then pee on my boots like the last one. :-)

I wonder how many companies made that kit?  I had the bakery and a foundry years ago in N scale.

It had many renditions over the years and it seems Walthers offers something pretty close. I am sure it was involved in quite a few kitbash projects too. It seems there was at least one other model company that offered it. The two stall engine house seems to have used some of the die work too and has been fodder for a number of different structures.

It would make a nice power house.

Nice looking plywood patch. The photo brought back some fond memories of my early days in model railroading.

As I recall, Revell also used some of the parts for their two stall engine shed. Still have one that I built back in the 60's on my current layout.

It started as an enginehouse kit that also became a bakery and a printing plant. Plus many have been kitbashed into who knows how many things.

Was AHM the other outfit that offered them or a variation?
