And another coat of paint... and another
Keli has extremely generously offered to ship me her spare porch pieces all the way from Michigan, so that I can use them for the conservatory build. While I am waiting for those, I think I will build the front porch. I could start gluing in the windows, but I am hesitant to start blocking access to the rooms until I am sure I don't need it - for example, for gluing in cornice, skirting etc.
The other fiddly job in my future is to create interior window frames for the Grandtline windows. I suspect these were originally aimed at model railroad hobbyists as they don't come with an internal frame. You wouldn't need one if you were just applying it to a railroad model house. I am planning to cut interior frames out of something like light card or plastikard.
