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

Fantastic looking structure, lantern and wiring. Like the structure color choice as well.

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