This video concentrates on the work to complete the window frames and a need to redesign the front of the hotel, when I realised my original idea just didn't look right because of other design changes.  In doing so I was able to get some paint on to the model to satisfy myself about the intended colour scheme.  I also show a look at the Wifi Receiver for use with my Prodigy Advance2 Controller which arrived just as I was completing the filiming of the video.

After a three week gap I am able to show quite a bit of progress in building the hotel. A you will see in the video exterior work is nearly complete.  I also show the value of using the Woodland Scenic Light diffusing film and the tinted film.

Hi Stephen, I can not believe I had not seen your posts on here before. I am now up to about number 38 on youtube so I am catching up. Itís very interesting watching your progress on youtube, you have had a lot of the same problems I have had building my layouts. I had the same problem with the Peco switches on the solenoid point motors, I gave up with them too. That was the main reason for me to change over to Cobalt motors. Keep up the good work, I am envious of your Castle steam loco with sound, I want one myself so I need to start saving.

Thanks Graham.  One of the reasons I did the videos was to document the problems and how I solved them.  I did find it all just a bit scary when I first started because there seemed to be so many new skills to learn.  But what fun it is to do so.  Stephen

You are!

We've decided that there are too many Chris's on the Forum so now you are to be called Graham  :D

Cheers Chris, I mean weave  :beers:

PS. Sorry Stephen for the little thread hijack.

Sorry Chris.  I misread a comment on your YouTube channel.  I did wonder why you were LilChris on the forum, but it didn't twig, as it should have done, it was because you were not at the very least called Graham.   :confused2:

Thanks very much Weave.  Black is the clear favourite but I have just had a comment on my YouTube channel telling me that it was more common at the time this building was built for the fire escape to be painted consistently with one of the exterior colours of the building - so dark green has entered the mix   Stephen

Hi Stephen,

Interesting. That would be good too or maybe, just to do your head in, the lighter green so it doesn't dominate the window frames?  :) I dunno but not the grey for sure.

Good luck with your decision.

Happy hotelying.

Cheers weave  :beers:
