John,


Thanks for the compliment. I agree, Kenny has some very nice kits out. He has also teamed with Jensen and  Keep it Rusty for more fantastic stuff.

I built a quick and easy interior. I made it so it the building fits over the interior so I can remove it to add lights and other interiors later.



I used Pan Pastels to color the floor and painted Floquil Mud on the walls.

Didn't notice the camera reflection until just now. Sorry 'bout that.

I added a little more to the exterior stair case and glued it in place.



I used a small metal square to keep it level and in place as the glue dried.

It is level of course!



I added two strips of 2X4s to the back of the stair stringers. Instead of cutting my own stringers as I usually do, I used Northeastern Scale Lumber stringers to save time.



More in a few.

I previously had the measurement for the width of the stringers. I used three HO scale 2X8s and glued the stringers flush to the outside edges of the three 2X8 spacers.



When the stringer sub assembly was dry, I glued it in place against the platform and wall as shown.



Continued, Diet Pepsi time. Back in a few.

Once the stringer sub assembly was in place and the glue dry, I added the HO scale 2X6s for the treads.





When this entire sub assembly is dry you may choose to remove the three spacers. In my case, I chose to leave them in place for a little extra support. I did  use Hunterline Light Gray A&I to stain the ends of the treads.

Done for today.
