Thanks for the complement. It's a challenging model. Yesterday I discovered, again, that there was not enough stick basswood supplied. This seems to be a trend with Bar Mills kits. I have an assortment of sizes, but I'm running out of some. Does anyone know where you can order an assorted pack of basswood strips with smaller strips in it?This is looking fantastic, I can't wait to see it finished. I think something like this would fit in in my mid 1980's layout I am planning. Thanks for sharing.
I generally do that on all Bar Mills and similar kit windows. A small dot of white glue in each corner, I use Aleene's Original Tacky Glue because it seems to work best for me.I think I may pull the windows and add some glue. The adhesive doesn't appear to be very strong, and there isn't much surface area. Some of the windows pop out of the wall if you just look at them wrong.
Thanks for the kind words. It's going a little slow right now, but I keep doing small bits of work.I'm enjoying watching the progress on your Tylick Tool structure and like how it's shaping up. Watching your progress reminds me that I have a Bar Mills kit that I purchased several years ago and even without a spot on the layout for the kit, I should build it anyway.
Keep up the good progress and looking forward to the next post.
