Really, I like the look of the wood sided gin. This one is old so the wood would have been nice and silver-gray by 1945 if it was standing at all. There is no information that I can find on this mill so I'll build it as a freelanced model and use what I can from this one photograph.
Here is the plan overview with the rough dimensions that I was able to decipher. Not a hard structure to build, but will take some time. Just what I needed for the SER convention, though I probably won't be able to make it with the new baby. Maybe I'll send it by courier.
One change that I'll make is that the cotton storage shed will have a railside loading dock. I don't want to put the nice side of the gin toward the back so I'm not sure how it will look yet.
Here is the warehouse, which is slightly enlarged from the above drawing.
