The roof was finished with the chimney added and the porch railings were put on.
all that was left was to put the glass in the windows and hang the curtains.

Very professional work. You are very talented. Have you given any thought to doing one in the "before" condition. I think it would make a great conversation piece.

Nice job Ray :thumbs: , what do you use for glass? Chris above has a good idea for an as purchased model, but that would probably be a lot harder to build.

I use clear plastic for the "glass".
I copy photos of curtains off the internet and re-size them down to fit the window size and print them out.
These are cut out and put on the inside of the glass.

If the model is not going to have any interior details, I then mount a piece of frosted plastic on the inside so the curtain is sandwhitched inbetween the two pieces of plastic.
If it has interior details then I use clear plastic on the inside instead of frosted.


Once this gets mounted on a layout, it will get an electric service line run to it and a meeter.
I don't want to put these on now because I don't know what side the power will be run to.
This will also have a fuel oil tank mounted outside someplace.

Hey Ray, you need to set the model on a table in the foreground with the real house in the background and snap a picture, but don't tell us which is the real house! LOL
