|Sills and a door added|
The sills of all the windows have been cut and glued in place (coffee stirrers of course) and three door have been made and glued in place too.
The door to the tower is in the wall of the tower section with just a portal into the main body of the church.
The main door to the church has been glued into another internal wall that will affix to the back of the main front facade.

Some fiddling about, to make sure the main door aligned with the front portico, was necessary but not too difficult
I used a very thin piece of card (cereal packet thickness) to make the door, overlayed with coffee stirrers - cut to size when glued. The process being repeated for the other side of the door.
The horizontal beams were added and cut to size later.
The other two doors were done in a similar way, save for the tower door having one side left blank as this wouldn't be viewed as I'm not making any provision for figure access to the lower level of the tower.

The outer wall will butt onto the base whilst the internal wall will sit atop the base. I'm hoping that this will give a much stronger join than either of the two methods if used separately.
To add to the look of the walls I also made (and remade after piss-poor calculations) two corner posts for the rear corners.

The internal floor for the main building has been scored into 1cm squares to give some detail - very easy and effective imo.
I've ran a pencil through the cuts just to show them for the photograph. I haven't yet decided how these will be painted (badly, I'm guessing).
|Hatch and floor|
|Fllor/roof - the hatch is yet to be added.|
This of course meant that when the tower is glued in place with an the roof fixed in place, access for figures won't be possible, but I'd planned this.
With this in mind I've roughly painted the interior a dark brown as this would be visible from the tower's two small windows.

This final 'fitting' I'll be taking very slowly, gluing only a single wall into place before 'fitting the next.
|Front showing the facade|
The front facade has had a wash of filler over it and been tidied up a bit, though it does need a lot more done to it
I've also finally decide to have an oriel added to the front, which will be tricky to line up with the internal wall, but very doable.
|Another view of the front (in case you hadn't guessed)|
The final stage of course will be painting the whole thing, but I've also to decide what to do with the rear 'yard' of the building, which currently is yet to be decided.
Thanks for taking the time to look and apologies for the poorer than normal photographs, but i hope that there's something here of interest.
Comments of course are always welcomed and appreciated.
