Thanks, Frank and Carl!!

Still chugglin' along.



I know it's hard to see but the windows have come full circle.

I'm just doing a few at a time, from start to finish. Actually, the 2 windows on the south (left) front end are done too.

Your windows look great! You are very gracious to accept my suggestion. I like how they turned out in your hands and might try that detail in a scratchbuild of my own some day. Although of the two homes the Holt house is the more attractive and elegant, I find this one more interesting because of the carpenter’s sampling of architectural details.

Thanks, Ted !!

Mike, I picked a window that I thought showed the detail best. It never dawned on me that some of the detail might be missing. A very good call on your part. I'm glad you suggested it, it's actually easier doing it the right now. I should have seen it, I'll blame it on my new glasses, still trying to break them in.

For the record:
"The style is Queen Anne Revival, though Victoria was Queen of England at the time. The house had the symmetry and practicality of an earlier period, having fewer decorations that characterized the architecture of the time."

Thanks, Bill and Philip!!

Sorry for the delay. A shipment of parts I was waiting on to finish the windows got lost for a week and a half. Out of respect I won't mention it was FedEx. But now the windows and doors are all done. While I was waiting on the shipment I started roofing.



And corbeling.











The corbels are a little thicker than I intended but I believe once they are painted and blended in the will be alright.

Also made the chimneys and porch roof.

Looks great Fred!

Since you didn't mention your slow shipper, will you not mention your windows parts source?

Shipping is a "sore spot" with everyone right now.

Thanks, Bob!!

Carl, Evergreen Scale models, just various sizes of styrene strips. But I also needed some Testors liquid cement, so I got it all through Walthers. On a side note: after the shipment was 10 days late I contacted Walthers, they checked with the shipper who couldn't find it. So Walthers reshipped the order at no cost. I got that in 2 days, ground. I don't know how that happened, usually takes at least 5 days. But the "lost" order also showed up the same day. So now I have plenty.

Thanks, George!!

Alright, who did I think I was trying to fool? I've made another trip to Hobby Lobby and I'm getting ready to re-do the corbels. I couldn't live with them. So there will another brief pause in the action.
