  1. I was accumulating stuff for months before I even started gluing the house together. Creative uses of items meant for other scales help too.
  2. Thank you! How goes progress on your own Fairfield? Lots of the folks on this forum have built one (or more) so feel free to ask questions if you need help with any of it.
  3. If you have a fine-toothed saw, it's possible to gently cut the rectangular windows in half and then piece back together at the height you need.
  4. Hi, Doing a quick internet search, I found Harold Goldman made miniature instruments in the 70's and 80's, but no details more than that. Perhaps you'll be able to search further now knowing his last name. Good luck!

    Your stairs look fantastic! Well done!!
  6. Sue Cook Miniatures is another great place for fireplaces. The fireplace in my Fairfield's parlor is from her. She also has plaster ceiling roses. https://www.suecookminiatures.com/shop/index.php
  7. If you send a message to SDK with a photo of the variety you want, I'm sure they could do a custom rubber plant for you. It never hurts to ask!
  8. Phoenix models has a bed warmer. It's a white metal that you can paint copper. It comes paired with bellows. https://www.phoenixmodeldevelopments.com/index.html
  9. Very interesting making a door for the top of the stairs!
  10. I've been researching for the cause of those spots. You mentioned using steel wool. This might be what happened: Could be a tannic reaction from someone using steel wool and then a water based finish, or if it got too damp some woods have very high tannin counts and cause that exact problem.
  11. As for the inconsistencies in the stained wood, I think that's very common with this type of thin plywood. If the unevenness bothers you, you might consider doing a faux finish using paint instead.
  12. I doubt it's mold, but have no idea what caused the spots. Here's something you can try: Soak a cloth in some hydrogen peroxide and dab onto all of the dark spots. Let dry overnight and be amazed! Repeat as needed. For larger, darker stains, you can leave a hydrogen peroxide soaked towel over the area for a few hours and then remove and let dry.
