1st coats of paint on the body and the window castings so I could glaze them all.



Roof and cupola assembly next....

Looking good, Martin. Like the others, I'm beginning to think about the wood kits I have sitting on the shelf.

Roof on, cupola assembled with roof on (needs a few trim boards), and all test fitted together.

Got to wrap up the cupola, paint it, and get the windows glazed.

Martin, do those roof boards have beveled edges to match the curve on the roof?

Nope! I just fiddled about with the board width until I got one that left it pretty tight. After I get the the canvas on and get that painted, it'll be fine.

Another fine model, Martin. It's shaping up very nicely.

I could be wrong, but when you secure the cupola to the roof (if it isn't already) I'd probably center it between window and door. Seems like the cupola access would interfere with the door as you currently have it.

Just where you suggest is going to be its final resting place - where it is in the current photo is just to show it resting on the roof

Got the cupola just about ready to attach now; trim added, painted, glazed, roof and grabs installed...

The cupola is almost a model in of itself. Quite a good job on the detailing, Martin.

My standard - single ply napkins from Panera cut into strips and overlapped attached with dilute Carpenter's glue.

Thanks all!

It was a bit of battle getting all of the openings cut out keeping this old scribed plywood material intact when I was getting close to the edge. Wore out 2 scalpel blades; no bloodshed!
