How many tenements make a neighborhood?

Neat juxtaposition.

Fred,
Fantastic work on your dormers and shingles. Those shingles will be a bear to complete but you can handle it I'm sure.

Thanks, Jerry, Carl and Mike. And Bill for the comparisons.

Rich, the shingles are no worse than doing bricks. The shingles of course are larger but the bricks don't overlap. I finished the end I was working on yesterday and I'm about a third of the way up the front. Of course there's still 8 dormer roofs to do. But I'll get there.

There's obviously two tenements in the prototype photo. I should have done the one on the left. It doesn't have corbels on the dormers. That must be the low-rent tenement.

I think there are corbels on both buildings' dormers, but the straight on view of the dormer on the left tenement makes the corbel almost disappear against the rest of the dormer frame/trim.

An easy task for any "O scaler", half the size and half the work! What's your hold-up???

If it's done in HO then it has to be the whole building. I'm picturing 4 bays, 2 entryways and 16 dormers.

Finished shingling the main roof. Still have the dormers to do. I need to decide on the color and whether or not to paint. Or just seal.




And just like the real roofers.....

The roofers just finished shingling the house next door but yours looks better. Well done.

Very nice. Your shingles (slates?) look so real.

For an application where you might have instead used a pre-cut product in long strips, the choice to use individually applied shingles bears itself out. The little variations come through in the overall feel of the roofing. Very nice.

Thanks, Jeff and Frank. I bet those roofers didn't make as big a mess either.

Galen, the variation just comes naturally to me.

Mike, I guess the shingles could be slate or asphalt at this point. Except maybe for the variance. Just like the real one. 75-100 years from now someone will see this and ask, "Are those shingles slate or asphalt?". Then a long discussion will begin. And nobody will ever know for sure.

Terrell, Looks wonderful. I love it. Can't wait to get to that stage with mine but yours is a WINNER.
