Holy Hubble, Batman! Are you aware of how hi a resolution is on this site? I couldn't believe what I saw at the 2nd magnification while I was logged in. I don't think my dog(s) can see that fine! I picked up one of the seats and squinted and sure enough, after a few seconds, I was just able to pick out verrrrrry slight black run between the cushions on the edge. Wow, I wear glasses, but even my magnifier didn't show that. Incidentally, that will be the Sharpie I used to even up the edge that ran from the clear. Repaint is on the way lol.
Jim, you got that right, but I think it's good to see the small stuff. I think at the end of the day it helps to make one want to try being a better modeler by seeing things one may have overlooked...unfortunately, so can everyone else lol!
a little update. I ran in to a problem with the curtains on the side of the carriage. In retrospect, I should have painted them first and saved a LOT of masking. To this point I had airbrushed the One Shot, but now, with brush in hand I ended up with....crap. It just didn't go the way I had envisioned, mainly the straight seam between curtain and window frame looked awful and I had to deal with brush texture. I was close to rolling the coach in catnip and giving it to the cat. But then....an idea. A new frame
I had just the ticket. I bought this stuff at the Dollar Store a long time ago....for just this moment..
it's thin, black, and bends like a dream.
I made the 90 degree two sided frame, and oozed a drop of ca glue in the corner. Easy peasy.
And this is what I ended up with
and here's where I'm at. Corrected some paint edging on the seat, re-cleared.
Next will be the 'party light' over the doors. I have a small sample of hi reflective white with a patterned design. I think it will do. This will be for the two side lights as well as the front and rear ones. More later.
Comments and observations welcome.

Look great and more real with the fillers around the opening. Was in a local doll house store looking for things that will adapt to show rods, they had a few 1/28th scale drum sets in different metal flake colors that would fit in the carriage. Cost about 10 or 12 bucks. The lady said the company also does Fender guitars in the same scale.
