Love the detail. What scale are you using. I am a model maker also. I use 1/16th and 1/8th scale. I use copper pipe for my stacks etc, and copper wire for mirrow frames and hand holds. It makes things a little more sturdy. Keep up the good work. Hope to see a lot more.

I use 1/16th. I make mine out of all wood. Things like the mirror frames do get a little tricky.
Broke many of them trying to sand them.
