99% Finished Midtown Bungalow Exterior


Before
After




I had the past two days off due to bad weather and worked on the Mid-town Bungalow's exterior. I added some trim and left some off from the original kit. I added windows, door knobs, eave rafters, brackets. I still need to finish drawing my shingle outlines and minor touch-ups. I noticed that I missed trimming a small area over the porch, I took pictures while the glue and paint were still drying as usual. I am switching out the wiring to the transformer on it and I saw two craftsman style lamps at miniatures.com I want to add, so work continues inside. I also plan to add a detachable back wall so when you look inside it looks enclosed like a real house.

  1. Hi Jocelyn! What a difference all of those additional little extra embellishments make to the bungalow! I love the exterior color combination and the wood trims that kick this bungalow way up on curb appeal.

  2. This is spectacular! The colors work well together and the back wall sounds like a neat idea.

    1. I hope it works out the way I have planned. I am more attracted to the outside of the house but I hate the open back. I bought extra doors to help add to the realism.

  6. The changes are not only noticeable, they really add to the realism. I've seen architectural models that weren't quite this detailed!
