This Will Never Do!
"This will never do! Daisy and I won't allow these awful porch posts..".
Now she tells me. After I stood the house on it's side, propped up by a can of spackle, reaching in sideways to do the work... It would have been so much easier if she had told me to remove the porch before I started the work.
So.....I proceeded to pull out the porch posts that I already had glued in. What fun!
Everything fits right. Now I can proceed to cut pieces with Luan Plywood. I still need to cut some half inch strips to fit under the porch too. I am not sure what happened to the ones that came with the kit, if they indeed did come with the kit.
I think that this fits better with the overall appearance of the house as it is now. I may still add crenelations to the top edge of the porch now that it is solid. We shall see...
Maybe I should just leave it this color and turn it into a White Castle... Do mini people like mini burgers? No groaning please! My train of thought is slightly derailed this morning.
I did notice that this old batch of Model air is not the same color as the new... I wondered about that when I started working with the new stuff. I didn't remember it being this white... It wasn't. It drys just a little grayer. I think that it will be OK when painted.
Anyway, I have to shoo Tessie out and get back to rocking now.
See you tomorrow.
