Jerry - you are becoming a master!
The windows look really great - nice job on the mullions!.
Yeah, I agree about the shape (condition) of the shop too.
I don't think it should look like its falling apart either &
for the same reason.
I think too many modelers have fallen into the "run down delapidated"
look on the structures. But I hink it depends on the era you are modeling as well.
Anyway, you are doing a fine job and I am looking forward to the next update.

Thanks Bill.

I think if your modeling the 20's or 50's the building is in use then. Not how it looked 25 years after they stopped using it.
So I like the its worn look. Its going to need some paint in the next year or two.

But once again thanks for all comments and help.

I just finished an hour or so reading through your thread. Beautiful work on the machines. I really like the finish on them. I will be trying this for sure. I never thought to try buffing the blacken-it. I read you are having trouble using real glass. What was the problem? I think I missed it somewhere. I use real glass all the time so I may be able to help. I also make window jigs to build a dozen or so windows at a time, if you are interested. It really speeds things up. It takes me about 1 1/2 hours to cut the wood, glass and assemble 12 windows using this jig. Once again, awesome work on the tools. Ron.

Thanks Ron.

I did make a jig for the windows. My problem was cutting the glass without breaking it.
But I have managed to overcome the problem.

Just a quick update this is what it will look like from the inside.

Hopefully I'll have all the inside walls on my this week.
Then I can start the outside.

Looking pretty good, Jerry! Can't wait to see it all come together. That's a lovely shade of stain you've got going for the interior.
