Decaling Windows (2 photos)
Chopped decal strips to length, to represent center mullions.

All decals in place and a coat of Future on each window to lock all those little buggers in place
That really brings it together now!

Scraping paint and placing posts for railings
Styrene 4x4s (I believe these are .06 Inch x .06 Inch)

Railings on, and just touchups left (2 photos)
Installed Grandt Line railing stock between posts. Then I touched up any scraped paint, painted the railings, chimneys, and masonry columns.

About Sean Hadfield (windysean)
FROM: WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES

I picked up model building and HO-scale model trains from my father. I've been working at it now for more than 40 years, always learning more. Although a self-proclaimed cheapskate, I always modify or add to my builds to make them unique and special (for better or worse, ha ha).

Sean, Those of you who scratchbuild these complex structures simple amaze me. Bassett Street is a great example of craftsmanship.

Thanks, guys. This was one of those challenges we set for ourselves, and you pick away at it and strategize until it's done. Cheers! -Sean H
