Jose, that's a good idea.

The tilt Is not hard; I can't cut a straight line on that saw at all.

One of my projects underway is constructing wooden tanks for the storage of fish head glue until it is pumped into tank cars for shipment.
 
I use Aleene's tacky glue to glue craft sticks to tin cans. 
I cut them to length after gluing the sticks by a quick touch to a disc sander. 
I need to finish them by making tops with hatches and bands around the sides. 

Thanks for looking. 
Regards, Dave L.

I like to scan the tables at train show for buildings in all scales.
 
Many buildings can be used in another scale, usually with little or even no changes. 
Here an Atlas HO water tank fits nicely on my Gn15 layout with just a new support under the tank and a few scratch fittings.

Dave, I am using figures from three different scales to create a forced perspective situation.

Larry, that is probably easier to do on a large layout.

On my small 3x6 layout the difference in size would be very noticeable.

I  even don't like the size difference of 1/24 and 1/25 scale vehicles when side by side,

although at opposite ends of the layout it seems OK.

Regards, Dave

Dave, I have set up figures from all three scales to see if my thinking is going to workout.

If I limit the viewing angle to just one position, no side views,
I think I can make the forced persecutive idea work.

Larry,

keeping in mind that humans come in different sizes, it should work pretty well.

Regards. Dave L.

As long as they have the right basic dimensions (door height, floor to ceiling height, etc) they should be fine.

Jose.

Over the years while starting and stopping the Fish Head Glue layouts I've doodled numerous themed layouts. 

Here is the Charles Guano Co.
 
An island with large rock formations is the home of a prolific colony of guano producing bats (or maybe sea birds-not sure).

Sorray Charles, seeing an opportunity,
built a little railroad to extract the guano and get it to the dock where it is shipped on boats to the mainland for processing. 

It is a minimal operation. 

Thanks for looking. 

Regards, Dave L.
