      The roof assembly is made with foam board and corrugated roofing fabricated with construction paper. Roof photos are closer to the true gray color.

      The corrugated panels were made from two metal finish panel sheets downloaded from Textures.com. One represents new metal and the other slightly weathered metal.

      I didn’t photograph the roof panel process during construction of the ice house since I wasn’t sure if I would be able to post on the RRL forum which was under repair when I made the panels.
      Hopefully this partial SBS, using left over panels, will explain the process.
      1. Download the metal panel sheets from Textures.com and print the panels covering an 8 1/2” x 11” 60lb. Paper. Texture.com has many variations from new to very rusted to choose from.
      2. Cut the prints into a corrugated panel size of 3’ x 8’ (1 1/4” x 3” at 1:29 scale) then roll each panel through a Fiskars rib roller. Click image for larger version

      3. Stack of panels ready to install on the roof. Click image for larger version  Name:	20211029_154123.jpg Views:	0 Size:	73.5 KB ID:	971715
      Added the louvered clerestory to the roof. The louvers are made with strip wood mounted to foam board. Click image for larger version  Name:	20211104_115523.jpg Views:	0 Size:	72.5 KB ID:	971716

          Guff,

          Sure looks like metal roofing! Nice work. Like the look of the clerestory as well.

            That comes out pretty well. It looks like you make an effort to align the rolled ribs with the printed shading?

              Corrugated paper? Great idea!

                Philip and Scott...Thank you. textures.com makes it easy to represent metal and painted wood. Best of all...it's free!
                James, thanks. I actually mixed the new and older metal panels just to give more character to the roof.
                Carl, the rollers works great. I only purchased a Fiskars roller that fits 1:29 scale but I'll bet there are roller sizes that match all scales.

                  Dave,

                  Many thanks for your message telling mw about your new build, I sure will be following.
                  It looks real good so far and the roof panels came out great.

                  PS, I didn't answer your message because I could not find a "reply" button.

                  PPS, I completely agree on the master modeler Terrell bit !!

                    Great idea making the ribbed panels using the Fiskers roller. My wife makes home made greeting cards, and since seeing Carl_B's roofing cutting die and this roller,
                    I have been sneaking into her craftroom, searching for tools. Unfortunately most of them do not produce details small enough to use in HO scale.

                      Bob,
                      For the last seven years you have been my model building mentor. I always look forward to your input and guidance. Didn't feel right without you in the audience.
                      Glad you could join in.

                        Rich,
                        Look around in the craft areas in Michaels and hobby lobby stores. All kinds of usable treasures can be adapted to model building. Happy hunting!

                          I looked at the Fiskars site and they don't carry it in their on line catalog. A search using Fiskars Crimp Roller show items on E-bay and Grainger. Strange. Not that I want one since I do HO scale, but wanted to get an idea for making one for HO scale.

                            Terrific-looking roofing, Dave. Subtle but noticeable variation in wear among the panels.

                              Bernd,
                              Send me your email and I'll send you photos of the tool from different angles. It's quite a simple tool.
