You can see the lower lamella. I don't think that there's a need to have everything working in amodel. Controlled by ghost hands.

Ok now, that is so good I thought it was the prototype and had to go back for a second look to confirm it's the model!

The modeler's annual. And that is missing really hard. When do you plan to publish the first online issue?

Oh, wow. Thank you Ray and Greg.

Any idea how to apply putty in extremely thin skein without leaving a mess?

Volker I did do this on one of my models. First I held the glass in with tiny spots of glue, then used a white Sculpy with a small putty knife. putty generally is painted afterwards anyway.

Thanks, Michael. For some reasons I didn't use glass, but acrylic glass, which is easily scratched when working with a putty knife and even by removing excess with a piece of fabric or paper. I think glass is less delicate.

Good evening Ladies* and Gentlemen!

Added some parts. There's a blackened screen with the shop owner's cypher to come where there's a brass screen now:








When I closed the shutter ...





... and opened it afterwards there was an additional door and some trifles. Simply astonishing, but it happened. Must have been any christmas thingie.





A bit closer.





Another bit closer for some dust and fuzz. And for unmissable evidence of my decreasing eyesight according to the aperture's screws.





Door is made of veneer and CA.








There are show cases to come at both entrance's sides.


Cheers,
Volker

*Russ, I hope your bikini girls have an account, too. Otherwise please forget this interjection.

Volker, your store looks like it will be so expensive and upper class I will give each of the bikini girls a platinum card with unlimited credit. The modeling isn't bad, either. -- Russ

The shutter is lasered (i. e. cut and engraved) cardboard of 0.5 mm diameter. I drenched it with spar varnish to have it a bit more stable. At the lowest lamella there's an additional piece of brass angle section over the complete width. It's able to roll it up and down a few times which is efficient to get to some different pictures later on. I don't need to have it 'working', but there'll be a hidden string to help closing it because it doesn't roll up to well because of it's stiffness.

So you are saying when the Christmas thingie opens a window, it closes a door? Smiley And and excellent looking door it is.
