Still ploughing on with the windows. There are 16 pieces of wood to be cut and painted for each window times 44..........to relieve the boredom I took a couple pics of my Flamsbana train. An extra loco has just be despatched from Germany. Interesting fact as Norway is not a full member of the EU, I am forced to buy from their branch in Germany....go figure.

Your build is coming along nicely.  I think windows and painting castings is why I always have more than one build going at a time. You just have to get away from them and do something else for a few minutes.

Thanks John I agree.

Steady progress on the upper floors of building 2. Next steps the fancy side supports and top drip rail. Touch up with paint and then apply acetate to the rear to represent window glass.

This is the finished top floor of building 2. The windows took 117 pieces of scale wood. Oh I wish Tichy made norwegian windows..........

Enough for today before backache and eye strain set in.............

Great job on the houses. The windows look really well done. All thumbs up on this one also.
