A lot of painting the last couple of days. Both the blue color and the green color required multiple coats.

Parts are leaning in place for this photo. Another coat of blue on the front architectural details, plus cutting window glazing (ugh, least favorite part of structure building!)

But overall I like how this is coming out. The top of the Mansard roof will be a bit of a challenge.

Dave,
Great job kit bashing this kit! That mansard roof came out nice, and the paper brick looks real.

More work-in-progress.

I still have to weather the top of the roof (along with a photo of same), and put it all together with the lighting.

Here's the top of the Mansard, with some "lead" flashing along the peaks.


There's some paint touch-ups and some work on interior lighting, but this is done.
