Lacy almost ready

My wife did some extensive modelling on the Lacy hotel. She cut the roofshingles by hand and one  by one. I think that is the only way to give the buildings from this time period the correct look and "feeling".

Yesterday evening she finished the front side, only the corners have to be done yet:

And as this morning, I think it starts to look pretty good:

I myself am busy to try work out a solution for the link and pin couplers. Also the frog of the turnout has to be constructed in a different way than I did now. At this moment there is a sort of "hole" or "gap" in the turnout. So I nee to construct the frog seperate from the turnout itself and before starting the latter.

Later more!
