Sorry for the surprise but I got a large amount of work done on the facade of the Gordon.
I had to add a .010" layer to start on the frame work, across the top 1/2" I cut strips of .010 x .125" a 1/4" long and made individual blocks. It turned out extremely well and I should have done it all the way down, ah well. I then built the tiny cornice on top and the slightly larger one above the first floor from various dimensions of strip.
The three vertical parts have a core of .040 x .250" strip, then I added three layers of .080, .100 and .125 strip that is .010" thick each. Then I built the little decorative parts up at the top floor from .010 x .060" and .040" strip stock.
In the first photo you can see my cement of choice, it is Tamiya Extra Thin Cement. I used to use Ambroid Pro Weld, but the Tamiya has a tiny brush, so I don't flood my parts with too much cement and end up with finger prints. Another bonus is the Tamiya is in a short squat bottle so it is less prone to being tipped over, but I have still managed to tip it.
This was just a quick update and I may not have explained some parts very well, please ask for clarification if needed.
