Carl great looking structure. The diorama should be a real eye popper. I have one question: why did you go with tar paper roofing and not shingles like in the photos?

Nice work Carl. What was the embossing folder that you used? I never would have thought to use them for our modeling, good idea!

Looking just beautiful, Carl!

Your attention to detail is second to none. I think the soffits in white really makes the wall colour pop.

Cheers, Mark.

Fantastic Job, whew!

Roof - a bit of a twist there, was envisioning shingles.

Carl,

Well done! Another great structure and I'm sure a scene will be coming. I have enjoyed your posts on this build. Thanks.

Spectacular...

I do echo the questions regarding shingles. I can imagine shingling that roof would about double your construction time.

Your photo of the front view is terrific, too.

Thank you Bernd, Greg, Frank, Rich, Kevin. Mark, Jim, Bob , Mike and Karl!

Frank-Jim-Karl- The reason I didn't use shingles is because the original drawing didn't have any. And that was my guide....

Carl, It is Fantastic! The roofing method you went with is right in my line of thinking. A true 'scratch builder', thinking of ways to use the least amount of commercial materials whenever possible. Thanks for the tutorials that went along with the build.

I went back and looked at the drawing. I thought it was an architect's drawing of a line of shingles rather than drawing individual shingles.

Beautiful Carl, just beautiful!! Besides, if you get the urge you can always shingle your tarpaper roof!

Thanks Jim!
Trying to stay away from "commercial materials" is an art form, and quite difficult.

Frank- Understood.
I also thought shingles wouldn't be available if this was built in 1890. Possibly "shakes", but that would be a bit much for a trackside structure.
