That looks like a big challenge and a long one!

If you are looking for a water based gold paint I have one that works well. I bought it in England but it's made by Schmincke - Startseite - Schmincke - Feinste Künstlerfarben

I look forward to the rest of the build

Cheers
Mike

Thanks for the comments, friends
@ Vermin_King - the rolled paper method works well for very small diameter domes. For the larger ones, I find it better to use inside tabs.
@ Mike - thanks for the link. I should be able to find gold paint here in Portugal. Hmm, it would be risky to apply it at this stage...

Today’s pictures show a lovely detail that will be glued to the left tower. After taking the pictures, I remarked that some joints were left on the visible side. Fortunately, it was possible to rotate the parts and hide the joints.

If you found the left tower’s top complicated, the right tower’s top is fancy! The pictures show part of the assembly of 8 elements that will glue on each side of the roof. The main roof is an octagonal pyramid, very tall and with more details. There are no gluing tabs and I felt the need to add some formers and extra parts to serve as tabs.

The roof is easy to assemble but fixing the detail near the top is tricky. I used rolled paper with a thin wire inside. Only the wire goes inside the roof. One of the wires crosses the whole roof. All the six others end in the middle and are glued to a rolled paper bit in the top, that also serves to support the pinnacle.

The first 4 pictures show the conclusion of the 8 assemblies that surround the roof. The laser cut details helped and could have helped a lot more if they were properly cut. I got the feeling that the laser was adjusted to the smaller window frames paper thickness (those frames are almost perfectly cut). It took time to separate the 16 parts without destroying them…
Regarding fixing the 8 assemblies to the roof, I didn’t seriously envisage butt gluing (there are no tabs…) as it would be more fragile and alignment would be a challenge. Trapezoidal card templates did the trick. I used 1,5mm spare card, taken from the base.
