  • Karl, those shingles are something else, lost of character, but as Frederic points out, they blend together so very well. Great job!

    • Great work on that roof Karl.

      Fellas, I stand corrected on an earlier post that these where not available in HO scale, they now are. Here is a photo of the 6" exposure shingles on the TO BE ANNOUNCED HO scale Hoosegow Kit.



      The HO 12" exposure shingles are on the website and I'll get the 6" up soon.

      The best way to install these is as follows: Always buy them as "Self-Adhesive" then cut narrow strips of masking tape, just the width that the row is high. Put the masking tape over the front of the strip of shingles, burish down, then cut the strip loose from the carrier sheet. Peel the protective layer from the back and apply the strip to your sub-roof. Works like a charm.

      • Whatever happened to this build? The detail and lines of the framing are incredibly inspiring. I'd love to see it finished.

        • Well Brett,

          the project was shelved until I figured out the detailing for the interior. However, I did build a version of it in N scale some time ago.

            • Hi Karl,

              This was another interesting build, and I really enjoyed the thread. I am reading up on board-by-board construction, and this gave a lot of great tips. I especially liked the rafter details.

              Take care,

              Rob.

              • Thanks for your kind words Rob and I'm really pleased you enjoyed the thread... so far.

                Pleased that some of my tips were of interest to you, check out my

                Bordello thread in the craftsman's corner, that one is loaded with tips and

                basically explains every aspect of scratch building the structure.

                Of course the best way to learn and master building boardonboard is to

                build one of the outstanding SierraWest kits.
