...however I am not satisfied with the semi-rectangular frames, they are too thick and they spoil the effect. Maybe I shall replace them with non-paper parts or improve my knife cutting technique...

Well, I found cutting U-shape in such a small scale too difficult (options A & B, phase 1). The result was less than acceptable. Much easier is to make the L-shapes (option D, phase 1). Of course one can cut only the straight rectangles (option C phase 1 - which is, again, much easier than to cut L-shapes), however the U-shape glued of three separate rectangles (option C, phase 2) is too weak (the area of a single gluing tab doesn't exceed 1/2 mm2). The option D is a good compromise.

The image #3 shows the comparison of the old U-frame and the new L-shapes, much more slender, neat and still rigid enough to be loaded with the "wires" later.

My electricians required few hours of additional training before they learned how to work with such thick cables (3 cm in scale!) but finally they started the assembly work.

Thanks for posting, I like all the Showa style buildings tucked in among the modern buildings.
