Bob, just catching up once again with your progress.
The outdoor photos make it look so real.
Simply amazing work being done by you and Terrell.
Looking forward to seeing your mansard roof take shape.

Dave, Carl, Bill, Ted. Ray, and Greg, Thanks for your comments.

I got the "rolled roofing" installed on the tops of the bays and started on the dormers.
Here's the styrene masters I made and the mold made from them. Then there's a couple of
resin castings that still need a bit of clean-up.

Thanks Guys, I appreciate you comments.

While cleaning up the dormer castings and getting them ready for paint I cut out the
mansard roof formers from Gatorboard. I found a sample of the curve in an architectural
notebook. I will also be making the shingles on my Scan N Cut machine. While they will be in
long strips I designed them to look like 3-tab shingles.

Here are the Gatorboard formers glued in place.



This shot shows the chipboard sheets cut out and glued in place to be the mansard roof.
Still needs a bit of sanding and cleaning up.

Bob,

You’ve captured the Mansard roof profile really well. And the castings look great.

Mike

Looking good, Bob. And it looks like you are able to do end dormers.

You're topping this building off very nicely, Bob.

Mike Terrell, Bill, and Pete, thanks for your comments.

Terrell, Yes, I think it is a bit crowded in that short span but I think it would look better
than no dormer on the ends. What do you think??

Bob
