Merchant’s Row II is well underway! Few touchups need to be made as always but it’s coming along.
I learned something new about model building from this kit so far, and it is the fact that older kits can be more difficult to work with! Some of the parts are warped slightly making the assembly a little more difficult.
On a different note, you can see in the photo below the obvious difference between the frosted window panes and the normal ones. I would have never thought about frosted panes if I hadn’t gotten glue on the windows by mistake so for what it’s worth, this mistake turned out to be no issue at all

That’s a good idea! I’ll have to try that.To your comment about warping, on several occasions I have glued a stiffner beam somewhere inside the building, to alleviate this issue. I like to put floors into my multi story buildings, and often incorporate the beams into the floor locations.
I like the appearance of this build, clever about the frosted glass!
