Looks better and better. Thatís a good variation in roofing.

Thanks Mike, Frank, Carl, Dave, Fred and Ted, for your continued viewing. Still plenty more to go to get it right. Turns out to be a fairly complicated structure.
Working on a rooftop water tank at the minute.

I want to have a rooftop water tank so have been working on that this week.
Not sure what purpose it would serve, but I always think they look great.

Used a thick cardboard roll for the core.


Then clad it in balsa strips, and also made up the top. Also from balsa.
The bands are styrene strips


then got to staining & weathering it.







The bottom is coffee stirrer sticks


Assembled, and a bit more dry brushing to finish it off.




Now assembling the stand

Tank Stand is made. All balsa.



And a trial fit on the roof. Won't be fixed to the roof until near the end of the build. I'm clumsy.

I've always liked those roof top water tanks. Coffee stir sticks, I buy them by the box of 1000. They make great boards for modeling, just make sure you buy the square end ones. Otherwise you have to cut all the round ends off.

Tanks George, Frank and Greg. I really like how it come out.
Frank, I got the round end ones, but a bag of 100 sticks for $2, can't complain.

I forget to mention, for the top of the tank, those are not actually individual boards.
I cut the circle (with scissors) from one piece of 1mm balsa, then carved in the board lines with a 0.5mm mechanical pencil. Much easier.
