more reconditioned railway buildings for WW2

These buildings are part of the pile of secondhand railway models (which I previously noted that) I bought with a view to creating both an industrial suburb and an urban area for the central European area of the later stages of WW2.
With these models they all needed their roof cutting off initially so I could have the model with a separate roof to insert figures into the building or to model it as a burnt out ruin by removing the roof (and leaving interior a base grey to indicate smoke damage). Many had no internal floor so these were added using either cardboard inserts or foam inserts, latter with pva and glue over the top then painted when hardened. I was not needing the fine details of the railway modeller like drainpipes and gutters and outisde add ons, so these often got cut off if they were not already missing. The more damaged they looked the better the starting point for modelling a war zone!
The exceptions to this mix of railway scales & types, etc., is a resin two piece kit (the roof was the second piece!) which I bought from the now sadly defunct "Fieldworks" (I hope Mr & Mrs Stuker are well and enjoying life after Fieldworks!) who made lots of lovely terrain in many scales, (of which I have many, and this has been waiting to be painted for a long time!) and this was one of their later 15mm factory units. Its the one with many "tanks" but no AFVs! It came with its own attached resin base but I stuck it onto a harboard base to help protect it from shattering as it ages like glass! And some small railway pieces, cast in resin by "Anyscale" models (Scotland) who have a large range and can be found on ebay, the two coaling staiths and water tank on a stone column are their models.
