Yes the Chimney stack is scratch built Mick. I got a sheet of Scalescenes red brick and warped it in Photoshop before rolling into a cone.

The retaining wall was scratch built as well. It was a Scalesenes bridge that I added to and resized in Photoshop.

In fact everything is somewhat modified. The shop has a drive through gate added and a chimney added to the rear. The next row of houses has an arched walkway added. The next row of houses has an brick slope addition to allow for the steepness of the road. It will have steps running parallel to the foot path. The steps near the chimney are scratch built. The bill board is scratch built. The "Look out, beware of the trains" sign is scratch built. Even the factory has had the name of the company founder and est date etched in stone.

The back scene was made by taking the drone out of town when we had a overcast day (not common around here) and stitching 6 or 7 shots together before printing on photographic paper.
