The roof looks marvelous. And you've made a great start on the dormers.

That roof looks fantastic! Are you using balsa? If so, that would tend to split for me, so instead, I use Midwest sheeting. Although you are modeling ina a larger scale too.
Keep sending pictures.

Terrell, Nothing short of FANTASTIC

I have something in mind a little different in the way of the dormers but yours look great.

Thanks, Frank and Mike !!!

Rich, I'm using basswood. Balsa would be too soft and fragile for this.

Bob, I expected you to take a different approach. Can't wait to see it.

My goodness, what marvelous work. Your description of the process is much appreciated, although I'm afraid the structure would be much too large for my O scale area.

Thanks, Karl and desilets !!


Still working on dormers, particularly the roof. So far I've managed to build them without having to glue them in place.

It took me about 2 years of pondering to figure out how I'd do a mansard roof. And here you dive right in and get it perfect the first time!
