Looks like a petroleum (oil, lacquer) over a waterbased (acrylic, watercolor) or lacuer over oil or oil over lacquer that was still not dry finish to me. Read the label, and see what to clean it up with, that'll be a clue as to what's in the 2 containers. Brand name doesn't necessarily ID what's in the can.

Jim, they are both Rustoleum and the labels on each can I would say are interchangeable. The same.

Anyway, I'm still working on this thing. The windows took some time. (I know Jim, I'm Nuts!).




And, as you can see, I've started on bay 1.

Late to the party. Wow, Fred, nothing like taking on a tough project. Excellent and I actually liked the paint crackle but yep, you had to fix it. Those windows will allow you to apply for Sainthood just for the patience alone.

Thanks, Philip, Carl and Tom!!

Only a week, seems like a month.

I've been trying to figure out an easy way to do the fancy trim at the top of the bay windows.



I don't know if I found the easiest way or not but this is what I've done. Starting with a sheet of .020 styrene I drew a horizontal lineup 4mm up. Then vertical lines 3mm apart.



Next, where the lines dissect, I drilled a 3/64 hole on every other line. Then with a single edge razor start hacking off triangles. I didn't mark all of the diagonal lines I would cut, I just put them there for demonstration purposes.



When I had a long enough strip done I cut it off, 6mm height total, flipped it over and glued it in place.



It actually didn't take all that long to get that bay done. But I have another bay to do, and all the eave trim.

Looks spot on. Drilling holes and cutting diagonals was probably how the originals were done.

That's what I was thinking, Mike.

And it was probably easier for them.

Just imagine if you had a HO mini compound miter box.

Nicely done!

I was going to suggest dressmakers pinking sheers (scissors), cut and laminate 2 layers of cardstock. But you seem to have this well under control!

Very nice! Like the look of that fancy trim. I might try it on one of my buildings some day.
