Crates of tie plates...in the AC

Something, anything, to do indoors in the AC. Did I mention humidity and mosquitos as well as the 93 degrees? I had fun doing these crates of tie plates inspired by one of the "junk" photos I took in Ringos on the BR&W. They'd probably look better in S or O but, they seem acceptable in HO. N, probably not.
Any of you remember E. L. Moore and his leaning, saggy roof buildings in old RMC's. Making these plywood creates reminded me of his articles.

Just pieces of styrene from the "everyman's" scrap box.. The sides are .010. I should have used .005 for the galvanized corner braces instead of the foil from the yogert container left after lunch.
