Howdy folks,

The last few days have been challenging at the bench. The current task of installing lighting is tedious. I am using the very nice lights from Aspen Modeling Company:




My approach is to create hanging oil lamps by removing the base from the lamp and installing a tiny LED instead of the incandescent light provided in the package. I plan to use the LED lead wires as suspension wires from the ceiling. All metal will be painted old bronze.

The challenge has been gluing the LED's to the base, so I decided to glue them to the shade and the shade to the base. It seems to be working. Here are a few photos of the progress so far.






The photos show that I need to adjust the shade a bit.

The lead wires will be sandwiched between two 2X6's that extend across the dining room.

That's it for now,
Mike

Howdy folks,

First off, thanks Jerry, Rick, Philip, and Michael for the encouragement.

Today I switched back from painting figures and castings to working on the roof. The vertical supports were added to the rafters along with cross braces.

I put the final coat of paint on the oil lamp shades and will suspend them from the structure cross supports.

Here are a few pics of progress:

Vertical rafter and clerestory supports:


Cross braces added:


Next up is making the roof which will be a smaller version of the big roof.

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the encouragement, Philip and Mike.

I love to use razor blades to build models. They are so sharp, that I get really good cuts; however, they hurt my fingers after a while. I ran across an old school cutter on Amazon and decided to give it a try. After using it for two days, I am in love with it. The handle is comfortable and cuts are easy to control.



I cut the final clerestory peaks today and hope to start on the Clerestory roof and windows on Thursday.

Persist,
Mike

Nice progress Mike, and have to love those lamps. Now, if I can only find a way to make up HO scale oil lamps.

Good evening folks,

Louis and Philip, thanks for your comments.

i had a little bench time this morning and managed to finish the clerestory window sections. They still need sanding, painting, glass, hinges, etc.

Here is a bit of the progress:

Construction process



Windows and dividers glued to sills


Clerestory sides ready for sanding and paint


Test fit on dining room



That's about it for tonight.

Have fun,
Mike
