To provide a sense of size, the building in the left foreground -- the large university/palace/government building with two dormers and two wings -- is 10 inches long from end to end.
The round dormer on Customs House -- center right in the photograph -- came together fairly easily. Believe it, or not, I sketched out the dormer shape by hand, cut it out with tiny, very sharp scissors, shaped it, and glued it into place. It usually never is that easy, but once in a great while. . .
The three-gabled structure in the rear left corner of the picture above will become, once a batch of balsa dowels arrive in the mail, The Hospital of the Holy Ghost. It is based on the actual complex of the same name in Luebeck, Germany as I've written previously.
Here's where things stand at the moment with the latest batch of town buildings as of Tuesday afternoon May 30th. Not perfect, but I must admit to feeling rather pleased wth how things are coming along. Only three basic structures left, and then I can begin adding balsa chimneys, steps on the fronts of a few buildings, as well as some slender towers to the three-gabled Hospital of the Holy Ghost, based on the real structure by the same name in Luebeck, Germany. Hopefully, my balsa dowels will arrive from Amazon fairly soon. Each structure also features internal ruined walls in two or three corners to hold it firmly in place on its base.
