    I'm on there too. Just had to see what it was all about. Rich twisted my arm to join though.

    I guess he likes being a TV star more than being with us!!

    Hello to all of my followers and anyone else. I will be back at this sometime soon.
    I don't want this to be another unfinished build on the already full unfinished build shelf.
    Thanks for checking in.

    Bernd and Rich, check your emails. I send you both a link about a corrugatong tool.

    (Link can also be found on North Coast Railroad thread)

    Glad to see your OK. I asked that in the return e-mail I sent you about corrugation sheet making.

    Looking forward to some pics of your continuing progress.

    Rich, glad you're feeling better.
    I'm sure you'll make the right choice for roofing.

    Glad to hear your better now Rich. All your choices for the various roof material sound fine.
    For rolled roofing, I just use card, cut into strips, and sanded along the lower edge to rough it up a bit for a weathered look.
    Here's a great video of how Jason Jensen does his roof. Nice effect.

    First off, glad to see you back and healthy. Nothing else matters as much as your health. Glad to hear you can think about the mundane aspects of modeling and not wondering where your next breath will be coming from.

    Welcome back my friend!

    This goes out to all concerned about my health. I am fine now.

    The main reason why I haven't continued is that I am contemplating what to put on the roofs of the adjacent buildings.
    I really don't like using Campbell rolled roofing because of curls when applying them, due to their being on a roll for a number of years.
    It is so easy to go off parallel lines when applying them. They do look nice when lifted, but it's a control application which takes considerable
    time and adds to the lengthy build.

    I may use individual cut cedar shakes on the main building, tarpaper on the smaller back building (sloped roof), and corrugated metal on the front
    workshed. Do any of you have any suggestions?

    Rich
