Volker, you look far better in that photo than you do on Skype -- Cary Grant vs. Frankenstein! Okay, I'm being a little harsh .... By the way, the structure is really turning out adequately. -- Russ

Allan, Ray, Russ, Kim, Bill - thank you.

Um, both of them are dead. I have to rethink that.

Cellar windows are made from layers of Cardstock and veneer of different diameters. Maybe they could be done solely from cardboard, but I think the outer surfaces with contact to weather look a bit better with some wood texture.



Cellar steps are done and await their final color finish.
 




That's all being visible of it later on. If at all.





Taht's why I didn't spend to much time with detailing that cellar door. Veneer is same as at the cellar steps, but with final coloring.





Cheers,
Volker

Your craftmanship is immaculate as always!

But I have serious doubts about your veneer... The grain look out of scale in my opinion. Which is a shame, as it is the only giveaway that your work is a model and not the real thing.

Here's a detail shot from an old wooden door. They don't appear frequently but apparently some do have very pronounced grain and cracks. -- Russ

Thanks, Ray, Hauk and Russ!

Hauk, do you think of the veneer in general or especially at the (by that time not colored) cellar steps? Without coloring it is out of scale for sure. About the door: I've seen some heavily crackled wooden cellar doors with planks like that, but the horizontal and sloped bars indeed show some out of scale grain. Howsoever please keep in mind that both the door and steps nearly won't be visible at all later on. I promise to use linden at all the visible areas  Wink.

First windows are done:



Toilet window from outside ...



... and inside.



Floor with victorian tiles (printed on glossy paper and joints slightly scraped wirh a toothpick).



Garage window from the bricked up opening, moved to the 'new' exterior wall. I'm still fighting with adding putty; this works for a seldom or never cleaned window, but there are some clean ones to come. Any idea how to apply putty in extremely thin skein without leaving a mess?



Cheers,
Volker

Ho-hum. Yet another example of the flawless artistry typical of this group. But we're already used to perfection. Can't you do something better than perfect? -- ssuR
