Thanks, Guys!
Today's update - after a long hesitation whether or not they will break I installed some of the aft decorations.

Thanks, Gents!
Here is the current state of SoS. The belfry is a bit more advanced (I still agonize on a ladder to it). There are some windows attached to the aft and also the central lantern looks a bit better now. The hand rail is still missing to it and I am hesitating whether or not to use a bell ladder instead of the straight one.
