I agree with Kevin. The build looks an interesting one, and looks pretty neat so far.

Tedious work, but the results are wonderful. Well done!

Stared doing some work on the cuppola. It is a petal design.


I used a quilling mold to help shape the curvature


The results:


It looked a little off center so I am trying something with steel shot and rare earth magnets.
The part very lightly dampened and placed in the quilling mold then filled with the shot:


The rare earth magnets help exert an outward force on the part:

I will check in a few days to see if it works.

The steel shot and magnets seems to have helped in the shape of the cuppola. Very subtle but the roundness is more... well, rounded.


Here is a pic with it on top of the tower:


On to the other buildings.

More buildings placed.
Schreiber-Bogen style of numbering. Black numbers are the part numbers, red numbers are the parts that get glued to that area

The base plate is part number 1, the extension is part number 1b. The tabs are numbered so you will place the building in the correct orientation.

Buildings 6 & 7 placed


Building 8 placed


Building 8 internal support


Getting closer to the end. Taking my time.

Really nice build. My wife and I enjoy touring them when possible,but I am getting a bit long in the tooth to climb those stairs. As for the Quilling mold idea, all I can say is, "I gotta git me one o' those". Thanks for a game changing tip.
