You're going to have to start a new series of models named after great grandkids soon then, maybe.

Nice work on the walls and windows Bruce.
I really like the colour combo. That pale mint green on the walls is very nice, and really nice period windows.
Great video too. Always good advice to use a new blade for cutting the openings.
As Maxwell Smart might say:- A dull blade is a fools frustration.

Thanks, Karl, Mike, Scott, George and Rob.

I managed to get the second coat of maroon on the castings late yesterday, so some gluing is on tap for today.

Mine was 83 on the NJPKWY.

Scott, we would get off on either 154 or 157 and head north. We lived in West Milford, which was right up on the border with NY State. (Greenwood Lake?)

Karl, Devon's older brother Tyler (Tyler's Tires) and his wife Kristen just had their second child. So now with two Great Grandkids, the pressure was on to finish the Grandkid builds and move on to the next generation.

Bruce very nice build. I also like the old time windows and doors. The color combination is very pleasing. Keep up the great work.

Huh, don't know how I missed this before. I like the store window, points for 'kitbashing' :-)

Thank you Dave, Karl and Jerry.

The trim now all has the second coat of paint, the window glazing is in, and I've started to glue the windows, doors and rear bracing in place.

These three walls are done and ready for assembly. Next I will do the same on the other 4 walls.

Thanks, Mike and Dave.

The walls are just about ready to glue together - just a few more window treatments to install.




Here is a closeup of the window curtains made from decorative ribbon.
