Model in F/G scale. Just fooling with you.
You need a good high end tweezers. At least that is what I use. Also I model in O. Good luck.

Looking good, Mike!

You can help ensure that the windows are at the same altitude by adding a couple of "feelers" near the ends of the gage you've made-- run them toward the bottom of the first side, add a lip on the end and then cut to length. Works like a square....

This might not help on this batch of cabeese, but on the passenger cars and the next batch....

Thank you Pete!

With six each of the ends and sides it would have been worth my time to have thought of something.
