Progress report - 13.
The new Holger-Eriksson figures have had the heavy and rather clumsy flags and cavalry officer's sword removed and holes drilled for new brass rod staves. All these figures are now in the detergent soak. While they're enjoying that I returned to the tower project, fixing the dome and cupola to the turret body and coating it with filler mixed with shredded tissue and PVA. Once all is dried I'll fix this to the main tower and work on the roofing around it. I did raise the turret height by 3/8ths of an inch as this looks more in proportion to the rest.
