Personalize your model railroad structures. Kitbashing - the art of modifying a structure kit or combining parts of two or more kits - is a great way to give your model buildings a unique appearance. In How to Kitbash Structures, veteran modeler Tony Koester shows many examples of how to fit, alter, and detail structures to match the specific needs of your layout, making sure they don't look the same as structure kits that are found on other model railroads.
