You achieved an excellent finish on the walls, Bruce.

Bruce Great project. The FSM two stall enginehouse has been one of my favorites for a long time. I had it but sold it a while ago. Your making great progress. Great catch on the front doors. Looking forward to watching this come together.

Thanks Rob and both Mikes.

Rob, I will play around with one or two of the windows. Gluing the upper part in an 'open/tilt-out' position will have to wait until I'm done gluing trim and bracing on both sides of the wall.

I'm sure you're glad they're done.
Doing windows can be tedious.
You did a nice job with them.

Bruce, that whole sidewall with the upgraded windows looks excellent!
I also like the idea of having some of those upper windows in the open position.

Thank you Rick, Greg, Dave & George.

Rick, that is for sure. Windows were never my favorite part of a build, but framing them out piece by piece is getting more challenging as my hands get shakier.

Greg, those windows that Walt made for Mike and later sold are great. They fit perfect in their width, and are just a bit short. The small gap is easily covered by the trim.

I like the choices you are making. The windows look fantastic.

In my opinion your modifications are improvements over both the kit and the model it was based on.
