Your meticulous job on the lights is paying off. They look very realistic.

Mike, that's some tedious work on the wiring but it's all worth it.
Looks great.

I know you are not finished with your door, but the method I use for such items is to paint them gray. Then, when dry, I use a small piece of sponge to pick up the color coat, dab it on a piece of paper to remove most of the color and then apply the color coat by dabbing with the sponge.


This gives a mottled, peeling paint effect with little effort.

Howdy folks,

Russ, Philip, Mike, Jerry, and Rick thanks for the encouragement.

Darrell, thanks for the tip. I hadn't thought of the sponge technique, but I'll try it.

Here are a few more photos of progress:

Inside view of the roof module. It only lacks a couple of holes for chimneys, two open windows, and weathering.


Front view of structure with completed roof and clerestory.


Have fun,
Mike

Looking good. With all the windows the interior should really stand out.

Howdy folks,

Finished running the interior lighting wires down the walls an through the floor to the power bus.

Final lighting task is to make two kerosene lanterns and support for the external doors.

As in the kitchen car, the lanterns have a small LED glued to the base of a cast clear lantern. The lantern is mounted to a support and the wiring run through the wall and down to the floor.

Here are a few photos of the lanterns in their last phase of work:

Support sized to match lantern height.


Lanterns and back support ready for painting before glue up.


It's off to the paint shop for the lanterns and supports.

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

Louis, Rick, Jerry, Roland, and Rick, thank you for sharing words of encouragement and following the build.

Coming soon will be the interior which should be another fun challenge.

You can find almost anything on Shorpy. Here is one that is guiding this build.




Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

The thing about closeup photos is that they show all the mistakes. Looks like I have more trimming and repainting to do on the lanterns.





Back to the bench,
Mike
