Thanks for your comments Terrell, Jerry, Mike, Rich, Carl, and Dave. I got the top
area painted with it's first coat. I think I'll have to dry brush this area after the
next coat to bring out the details. I also got the main areas on this side covered with
strips cut from styrene sheet to make the clapboards.

Next I will move on to the turret windows. I see that on the real structure you can see a
small area of clapboards between the window trim and the corner covers. This area is so
small I first thought I would simply paint it tan instead of installing all those little
pieces of clapboard but I guess I'd never be happy with that so it's off to makeing that
fiddly detail.

Well, it had to happen sooner or later, I'm surprised it took so long. Here are Charlie and
Larry checking out the window size and the application of clapboard around the turret.

The window looks fine to me; I hope Charlie and Larry agree. Meanwhile they should pitch in and help install the windows rather than just stand around.

Thanks guys. Charlie (in blue pants) started visiting every one of my builds from way back in
the first string, and then later he began bringing along his cousin Larry. They are
experts at standing around. They are both exactly 6 feet tall including hats (that's 3 inches in 1/24
scale and they give a sense of size to the structures).

Bet your glad you did those little clapboards.
It does make the difference beautiful work.

Bob, looks like the perfect prescription for satisfaction in styrene building!
I will take a couple more looks, and call you in the norning.

Jerry and Greg, thanks for posting.

Got a bit more painting done. Not shown, I painted and glazed the windows, they will be
installed tomorrow. Still have a bunch of little fiddly work to do before I tackle the
show windows and main entrance. Also the chimney and other "stuff" out back.

Bob, this looks really good to me, and probably to a lot of others as well, but what did The Inspectors have to say? They happy?

The world wonders!

Bob,
The clapboard looks great...well worth the effort. Should have mentioned it earlier but the roof trim is superb!

Thanks guys, so far the "inspectors" have accepted the job.

Lots of trim pieces to add yet but I think it looks quite different just with the windows installed.

I have notified Mr. Alessi that I am working on the show windows so I guess that portion of the
build can proceed.
