« Part 18: Got a little more done on the bus Part 19 of Trucks series Part 20: All most there »

More chairs.
It was a lot easier putting the chairs in with out the sides on.


Just the right length once sanded.
I all ways like going a little long and sand it to fit.


Now just button er up and add all the little doodads.
I didn’t add any details to the out side till I could sand the sides and get every thing to match up.
As I said in an earlier post I was having trouble with the sides cupping so had to do some extra sanding to get it under control.
I also had to switch the upper sides so the cupping would be to the inside so worked out but now the grain on the sides top and bottoms don’t match up like they should have.
One of those things that if I hadn’t said any thing most would never have noticed.

I don’t know Tony but just feel better with a roof over my head in the British fog and the like. LOL

I should also add that until I had seen Dutchy builds I had never noticed one with out the full roof so just didn’t feel right not adding the roof on the second floor.

When one just looks at the last set of photos it seems an easy project!
BUT…...
The Work In Progress photos on the blog, they show the truth, that it’s an incredible amount of precision measuring, cutting, trimming, and fitment to make the model look so good!

NICELY DONE BRUCE

Cheers Peter

You got that right Crowie all you said and add that once you do all that you have finished the bottom level and now have to do it again plus make it match on the top level..
Very interesting build for sure.
