Continuing with wall building

I’m getting back in the groove and moving along on wall construction. I must admit it’s tedious attaching that blue trim, but I’m thinking the end result will be alright. The wall substrate is 0.030 inch styrene except for the front wall which is a laminate of 0.020 inch and 0.010 inch in order to create an inset for the bay window. The blue trim are strips of 0.010 inch styrene with transfer tape attached to the back side. Once they are stuck in place, some liquid styrene glue is carefully dabbed on ends and certain edges to help with attachment. Some paint touch-up will be required once they’re all glued down. The photo below gives an idea of how small this depot is in comparison to E. L. Moore’s HO-scale version.
