The outside stairs are glued in place and the doors and some of the windows are in.
These windows were easy to put the glass in because they each took just one piece of clear plastic and it was just glued over the back of the window.

The upstairs windows need two separate pieces of clear plastic in  each window.
Each piece had to be trimmed to fit down inside each window pane opening and the top piece had to be rounded at the top edge.
I got a photo so you can see the reflection off the plastic in the window.

I copied some photos of curtains off the internet and printed them on paper.

the curtains were then cut out and glued to the inside of the windows.

Here's how the windows look on the building.

The rest of the windows are glued in place.

Some photos of radios were also printed on paper then glued to a piece of wood.

these were cut out and the sides are sanded down smooth then they were sprayed with a satin clear.
After the clear dries, I'll paint the sides of the radios to match the face of each one.
These will be set as display radios in the store front windows.

That looks real good, Ray. Takes some patience to do this, I'm sure.

Thanks for the update. Looking good.

Will there be any lighting, inside, or out?

Some of my buildings will have lighting inside.

I just bought 40 of these small outside lights that will be going over doors on buildings and on post around the layout.

Nice. With being able to bend them, you can make some really

neat looking old style post lamps.
