Thank you, Dave, Bob and George.

Dave, steal all you want.

Bob, one aspect I like about large buildings ox that they are easier to get square.

The roof is on.



Needs a chimney.

Meanwhile, Iím glazing the windows, a few at a time.

Good progress Mike. i too am wondering what you'll cover it with.
And the dreaded window glazing slowly progresses.
I hate glazing. Because you can't really paint over your mistakes.

Mike,
I have been following your progress silently, in the background. Looking forward to the time when trains will be meandering through those hills you are planning on scenicing. It appears that structure building is a good forte as well.

Thank you, Bob, Rob and Rich.

Bob, I plan to shingle this one.

Rob, you put your finger on the problem with glazing.

Rich, I appreciate your following along. I think I meander as much in my modeling as my trains do.

Mike

All I can say is Iím grateful to all the music people are putting on the web, because I need something in the background when Iím doing things like shingling roofs. Jazz, folk, blues, old time, they all work. During the week I listen to our classical station.

I completed half of the roof:



Iím using variable width shakes from BEST in the neutral color. I brushed on Bragdon Weathered Brown powder, trying to be as random as I could.



I prepared three sheets.



As I cut off strips of the self adhesive shingles I rotated among the three sheets to try for as random a pattern as possible.

Mike

Thank goodness for strips of shingles. That is a sizable roof. It is looking good, Mike.

Thank you, Chuck.

I agree. I canít imagine doing individual shingles for a background structure like this. I have too many models to build.

Mike
