Since all hollowing of the Buildings is finished I started with drilling holes for the fiber optics into the first building. 50 holes were needed for this small building. Just for you to have a clue about the size of the drill and the holes you can see one of my fingers on this picture:

Nachdem jetzt alle Gebäude ausgehölt sind habe ich angefangen Löcher für die Lichtwellenleiter in der erste Gebäude zu bohren. 50 Löcher waren für dieses kleine Gebäude nötig. Um eine Vorstellung von der größe des Bohrers und der Löcher zu haben sieht man einen meiner Finger auf dem Bild:

The damaged parts of this Building were done during my hollowing. I will fix this after I installed the fiber optics.

Die Beschädiungen dieses Gebäudes sind während meiner aushöhl Arbeiten damals entstanden. Ich werde dies reparieren nachdem ich die Lichtwellenleiter angebracht habe.

Finaly I got some time to continue. So I worked again on the Tower because after the Primer I found some spots I didn’t like.

Then I finished another Building:

Endlich hatte ich wieder etwas Zeit weiter zu bauen. Also habe ich zuerst den Turm weiter bearbeitet da mir nach der Grundierung ein paar Stellen aufgefallen sind die mir nicht gefallen haben.

Danach habe ich ein weiteres Gebäude fertig gestellt:

The last little holes in the Bridge Tower are filled with Putty. Looking good. After this I continued drilling trenches into the Buildings.

Die letzten Löcher im Brücken Turm sind mit Putty gefüllt. Sieht gut aus. Danach habe ich weiter mit dem aushöhlen der Gebäude weitergemacht.
