Carl,

Your shingles look fantastic.

Thanks for the mention. Because I often use whatever I have on hand—balsa or thin plywood generally—I need to pick up one of those rulers you show. It looks like a great tool.

Looking good, Carl.

I'm very interested to see how the shingles will look when completed.

Cheers, Mark.

Carl: Great looking shingles. A lot of guys are doing this one shingle at a time thing. I guess I'm going to have to try it they look so much better. On that note I'm ordering a Incra t-rule today.

Neat idea using the Incara T-square. I've seen it in the wood working catalogs and wondered if it could be applied to model building. You just convinced me to get one.

Also like individual shingles. Looks great.

Kevin, Jim, George, Greg, Bob, Mike H., Mark, Mike M., Bernd, thank you very much for your positive comments.

Kevin- The paint didn't soak in much, so I'll be applying more (& different colors) when they're up on the roof.

Since some of you are interested in the Incra T-rule- I purchased mine direct from the manufacturer.

I take back my complaints about doing shingle strips.
Doing them one shingle at a time, I take my hat off to you, even though I think it's crazy.
The finished effect will look great.

By the way, is there a prize for guessing the number of shingles in the cup. My guess is 428.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Are you going to give us a final count on how many shingles you had to cut??

Fine job your doing young man keep up the wonderful work!

Carl,

Nice work so far. I also see you doing shingles like I do, and random lengths are the ticket.
Another good use of that Incra T-Ruler, would be marking window openings along a sheet of bare wood during the scratchbuild of a wall without window openings. I think I will get one too ! Thanks for the tip.

Thanks Rob, Jerry and Rich!-

Rob- Doing shingles this way IS crazy. Guilty.

Jerry and Rob- There is no prize on guessing how many shingles are in the cup- Counting them would have been even MORE crazy.

Rich- Yes, I use that Incra for other jobs like you mentioned. A worthy investment.

Carl,

I made my purchase around 2:00 pm today and immediately got an email from the company saying it would ship in 5 to 7 days. Perhaps that is what Kebmo was referring to. The delay on the email, I believe, was for other items, if purchased, NOT the T- Ruler.
BTW, I bought the 12" one. Thanks again.

Rich
