Jan,

Off to a great start, I'm following as well. I've always liked this kit. It makes a really great track side structure.

Normally I would brace the walls , especially when they are thin like these and for N-scale quite large. But there are interior floors with this kit which make it almost impossible to do bracing and I'm hoping the floors will give it enough strength. The walls warped a tiny bit from the painting, so to lay them flat to place windows I taped them to a piece of shelf.


Then I glued in the first piece of the windows and doors so they were flush with the outside of the wall.


When I had done a wall I would hang it to let the glue dry without it sticking to the flat surface of the shelf.


The outside of one of the walls.


When the glue had dried I glued the backs of the doors in place and put some weights on the walls , partly to keep the doors in place , but also to flatten the walls a bit.


More window parts tomorrow.

Jan,

Great job on the large "N" Scale walls.

The walls, doors and windows look really good. All thumbs up here from Central Florida.
