|Spent some time on the mill, but didn't get as far as I wanted.
My heart! These parts are small.
These parts are the upper and lower sash for one of the MANY windows.
I spent about 1/2 hour wiggling the parts from the sheet, sticking them on the clear plastic, and trimming them to size.
The window opening required a bit of work, too, getting things to fit right.
I had to stop here because I found that I was out of ACC. I am never out of ACC. How did that happen?
Though the instructions don't address it, clearly the best way to install the lower sash
(which installs from the back side of the wall using the bit of clear plastic as a mounting flange) is with ACC.
Rather than experiment with something else, I decided to move on to other things.
Probably a good idea. I should test fit everything for the window installation before gluing anything in place.
In addition to the parts shown, there is the casing (one piece) and the trim, which consists of four pieces.
I moved on to painting the left side wall. I used the aforementioned Harbor Freight airbrush. It works just fine.
I experimented around with it, and it seems to work as well as my $100 Badger.
Harbor Freight still has them, but at the "regular" price of $19.95.
Really, if you are strapped for funds and would find an airbrush useful, I would highly recommend this product.
I guess I should post a photo and SKU. Soon.
