      Hollow Foam Buildings?

      Anyone know anything about this hollow foam building?  About 1/32 scale it seems. I re-painted it and sealed it up good for outside. Wonder if they make any others?

      It may have been made by "Mountains in Minutes."  I have their hollow foam commercial and industrial buildings, and these can actually be put together to make a structure twice as large.

      Mine were from SanVal and I seem to recall that structure being there too.

       

      This is the industrial side of my structures from Mountains in Minutes:

      And this is the commercial side:

       

      Here's mine painted that someone posted at some point in time:

      I picked the same ones up at a Greenberg Show.

      The Mountains in Minutes structures haven't been made in years.  I believe they are 1/32.  I have had the warehouse building sitting outside 24/7 for about twelve years.  Just repainted it and then a good coat of flat acrylic last year.  Still looks good.   I use the Krylon acrylic sprays on most everything that is going to be outdoors.

       I fixed up your code so your picture shows up.

      The commercial and industrial structures are made the same way as the mill.  One side is very detailed, two sides are detailed, but with less detail, and the third side (back) is open.  The two can be glued together at their backs to make a larger structure.  I used "sheet bricks" to do the backs and kept them separate.
