Continued work on Fred's One-Stop by Showcase Miniatures, installed the windows, doors and porch.
Some of the windows need touching up/realignment and the roof turned out too dark - need to lighten it up some







Still a lot more to go on this kit...car shop, gas pumps, etc.

Also, finally got around to cutting the plywood for the next section of track
