Oh man, that's going to be a tedious job Ricardo. All these details come with a price but the end result will by no doubt be spectacular. Looking forward to see this one developing into a great model.

Regards,
Erik

Thanks for the comments and please forgive me for being "off" for so long.

The first picture should be self-explanatory about the method I used to fix the transparencies. Fortunately, all-purpose (cellulosic) glue is effective for both paper and acetate. Yet again, an automated assembly line would be helpful here.

Assembling the main walls was a piece of cake. I didn’t find it necessary to put any reinforcements.

Very fine details and nice 3D design of the windows. Indeed, reinforcement doesn't seem to be required. Hopefully the paper is stiff enough by itself.

Regards,
Erik

@ Ronan - thanks
@ Erik - the larger flat parts always have buttresses. They provide good reinforcement on the paper model too

The main body is assembled and all the detail is waiting…

@ Vermin_King - thanks

If you remember, I slightly enlarged the roof holes to make way for the flying buttresses bases. It was a good decision. The flat roofs were reinforced with thick card, starting just after the line of holes. The idea was to keep the roofs as flat as possible when assembling the buttresses.

Thumbs up

Looks good.
Very nice modification to place the flying buttresses. Will keep that in mind in some future builds with those features.

Smart decision Ricardo. In all honesty and modesty, I would have done the same regarding the larger holes and roof reinforcement.....

Cheers,
Erik
