Boys will be boys, a girly calendar what else. Now you need a Sears catalog for the outhouse.

Thanks Frank & Carl.
---------------------------------
I couldn't put it off forever, so have started shingling the roof.
Got half of the main roof done. With the grey card I used, it's a little hard to see, but will look better once painted.

Looks good, Rob. It has that folksy harbor front style.

Thanks, Mike, Ted & Frank.
Will start on the other half of the roof today.

Frank, Yep, George, SgtBob and myself have been shingling, and Carl is about to start.
Must be contagious.
Nothing like a shingling a roof to fill in the time.

Rob, glad to see that you finished the roofing job, and it came out looking great!
I think you need to add, some ropes & pulleys hanging on your interior walls.

Thanks Greg. Yep will definitely add some ropes around the area.
Oh, and that was only half the roof.

Frank, don't blink, or you will miss a lot.

Finally got the rest of the main roof done.
First used 1.5mm balsa sheet for the roof.


and hand cut a lot of shingle strips.


Added the end boards. These were leftover planks from my boat builds. Basswood or pine I think.




Then did all the shingles on the other side.

Rob, Good job on the shingles. Cutting by hand is a real chore!

Thanks Dave. Yep, not one of my favorite modelling past times, but worth the effort.
I'm happy with how they look.

Spent the last couple of days painting and weathering the shingles.
Blended several different mixes of mostly greys, with a bit of brown, plus thin black washes, and dry brushing.
I'm going for a fairly heavily weathered look as it's a waterfront structure.

This shot shows the back half done compared to the front half


And I added the rafter tails to.


Some shots taken outside.
