  • Scott thank you. Here is what the tile roof looks like. Excuse the tape that's to hold the
    back corner down since it's not glued down:

    The edges still needs to be touched up and a ridge cap added. My thinking was besides being somewhat different look, being
    the Company Store it would be a little nicer than the rest of the buildings.

    Since I've posted the photos; what do the rest of think.

    • The company store should have its own look I agree. Was that a printed roof? It should look very nice once finished.

      • Louis thanks. Yes that is a "print" from my files in O scale done on 100 lb. paper. I highlighted
        each tile by going over the outside of each tile with a ruler and a soft black pencil to make them
        "pop" more.

          • Nice structure Larry. I really do like the store front.
            And nice work with the roof. The printed paper items these day are excellent. Very realistic, but much easier to do.

              • Philip thanks; yup grand opening soon.

                Rob thank you. Yes the roof was much quicker to do and the prints are very good now.
                The store front was done with 2 sets of prints and has 3 layers glued on top of one another
                which gives it that nice 3D effect.

                Bruce thank you and thanks for stopping by to have a look.

                • Larry,

                  Very classy roof. It does indeed make the store special. Good choice.

                  Looking at your store with the nice front and roof, it strikes me that it would be appropriate to have a board across the top of the false front to make a simple cornice, maybe even with corbels underneath. That was very typical as a way to dress up simple structures.

                  Mike

                  • Micheal thank you for the nice compliments. I really like your idea of a "cornice"
                    along the top of the false front; very doable...thanks.

                    • Larry, I've looked at your picture a few times before deciding to respond.
                      I would have preferred a shake roof but everyone else likes the one you have on now.
                      So stay with it.
                      I like Michaels suggestion of the board and cornice.

                      • Rick thank you. I had waffled back and forth on the roof myself. Having seen this on another model
                        with wood siding I rather liked the look so I decided to go with the tiled roof.

                        • The Store is now done except for the lighting and maybe a couple of little things that may possibly be changed
                          at a later time. Here is the finished product:

                          This is the front with a cornice added across the top of the false front. Dresses up the front some being the Company Store
                          and all. Thanks to Michael for the suggestion.

                          This is the finished roof with the ridge cap added and the edges finished. The lines between the individual tiles were
                          enhanced with a soft black pencil and straight edge. I'm quite pleased with the way the Store has turned out.

                          Now it's on to the business end of the layout....the last 32 inches of it. Planning on how I want this and how the "Woodcutters
                          Shack" is going to fit into the wood part of the whole concept. That is a Sierra West product that I purchased from Rick awhile
                          back and will take me a long time to get it just right. Also need to squeeze in the coal part which will require a lot less space.

                          That's the current state of the CC&W RR. Still lots to do, maybe more real estate at some point, and lots of fun to be had.
                          Thanks for looking and until next time.

                          • Larry, Diamond roofing? That's different but I like it, it gives the building a lot of character. A little bit of weathering along the bottom of the building and it will be perfect.

                              Almost a pinking shear design but larger.

                          • Ron thank you. Yup a little weathering would make it look better; actually the other buildings
                            should probably have a little weathering on the bottom too.

                            • Looks great. Always circle back (now who does that sound like) and add more later. What kit did Rick sell you?
                              That Sierra West will be a challenge! Fixin to get broke in now!
