My friend, Richard G. gave me roundhouse and extension kit in HO scale.

I have been painting the mortar in the bricks.  Paint it grey, then wipe off the brick part right away before it dries.  A time consuming job, but well worth the effect, I think.

This is the window inserts, a sheet of plastic goes over them from the inside.

The bays for the inside are long plastic parts and I am using X-Acto clamps to hold them together.

I used this little metal box full of paint jars to hold the parts together.

The end pieces are very long, but not warped at all.  Even in HO 1/87th scale this is a big model, it has to be to hold large HO locomotives.
