Dave,

Very nice model, by the way.

Regarding the CBD illustration of the Winslow roof, if you look carefully at Fig 673 you can see that the metal sheets are a sub-roof. It is described on page 34: . . . metal sheets, fastened to purlins and roof strips, and protected by a single layer of roughly-matched boards.

Mike

Dave;
Ya might consider a solid floor with a separate roof & frame, plus doors etc. This is the most common package in "S". It also has no or almost no undercuts.
