Very impressive. All the different roofs add a lot of interest to your model. I particularly like the details such as the cupola and the little windows on the gable.

Bill, Greg, Rob, George, Scott, Mike, and Dave, thanks for your comments, they are all much appreciated.

Here's how the project looks right now. It may not look like a lot has been done and there sure
is a lot to do yet but having the roofs all shingled is a big milestone for me.



Time to think about finishing the rooftop and making that chimney. I must remake the urns
because I was fooled by the first photo and looking at another photo I see that I made my
master urn too big. Just the joys of scratchbuilding. Once those are done it is also time to
get on with the Christmas decorations.

I must also work in the lighting which I have in my head and I am waiting for more LEDs to come in.

Looking out the window I see it is snowing harder again !!!

Bob

Bob, your roofing job looks great!
Darn about those urns being to big, I bet no one would have noticed it.
looking forward to seeing what you have in mind for the lights.
As for the snow, it's beginning to look like Christmas!

Bob, the roof looks great. Charly & Larry must agree, looks like they went home after the roofer finished.

Thanks for your input Greg, Pete, and Bill, most welcome.

Here's what I have so far on the chimney. I estimated the size by counting the bricks along
one layer and reduced it somewhat but it still seems massive. There is some sort of metal
looking plate on all sides which I cannot make out in looking are several photos. I have come
up with what I can see and will have to let it go at that.

Here's a shot with the chimney installed and the roof top finished.



and here's a shot, not quite on, but close to the same camera angle as the original photo.

Bob, Nice chimney to top off a beautiful build!

Are the metal plates carved into the foam or applied?

Dave and Pete, thanks for your comments.

Dave, no carving done, all built out of bits of sheet styrene.

Bob, I never would have guessed it was individual pieces of styrene! Beautiful job!
