I haven't worked on the Citadel in some time. The last time I posted about it, it looked like this:
After the center portion falling on the floor and breaking several times plus the fact that I would have to figure out a way to reconfigure the stairs to fit without the curved section that came with the kit. I decided to make a few changes. I think I am going to use the curved section, but add some windows or better yet, make it glass block.
This picture shows the house with the curved section attached.
I'm thinking of doing something like this:
Anyway, armed with a hot hair dryer and a putty knife I removed all of the siding.
We have a lot of beech edge banding left over from our kitchen redo, so I decided to use it as the new siding..
I know it looks a bit like all of the other Citadel dollhouses you see around, but I just wasn't feeling the other siding. I do intend to keep the front center portion removable for taking pictures and I'm going to use metal to edge the the exterior walls.
