Thanks guys. I added blinds and curtains to all windows trying to come as close to the
original photo as I could. I then set up my Scan N Cut machine and cut a zillion shingle
strips and then started applying them to the roof. Most likely be a while before I get to
have anything to show again.

The shingles look great, Bob. And so do the shades.

I only did ten hundred million thousand shingles. Glad that's done now I get to lay brick again.

The mansard part of the roof and the dormers are done. Next I'll move up to my partial hip roof.

Another excellent from me too Bob'.. Your builds never look like they are made of styrene. This looks like real wood and looks like a real building. Making plastic look like real wood is definitely a talent and you have it.

Wow!! Thanks Bill, Dave, Carl, Bob, Terrell, Ted, Ray, and Mike for your comments, I appreciate them all.

Ray, making it a "flat" helped a lot. I will measure it later and let you know the exact
dimensions. Right now I am working on shingling the hip section of the roof. I have
kept the mansard and hip roof combination separate to make working on them easier, they will be
joined later.

Bob

I'm curious about the size of it, too, Bob. A really nice model. It is fun to see Fred and your models, in different scales, being built.
