Hallelujah Paper: Papermaking Machine Building

The building housing the papermaking machine at Hallelujah Paper at Silicon Valley Lines is huge. I decided that this building will be constructed from concrete wall panels similar to many modern warehouses. To break up the rather bland front in addition to expansion grooves in the walls, I cut wooden coffee stirrers to length, and glued them to the side of the building to simulate parts of the building skeleton.

There are many uses for Floquil Paints, including acting as weights to hold parts in place until the glue dries.

This building will also play a very big role at hiding the SVL continuous running track through the Hallelujah area, so it's just as much a industrial building as it is a "tunnel". I will cut appropriate openings into the sides when test-fitting the building on the layout.
