It wasn't the sagging I was thinking about Paul.  The roof "sub base" won't be a problem - you can cut that however you like if you don't use the Scalescenes panels - it was more the outer roof cladding ..........the Scalescenes print will only do about 2 houses on each run.:hmm  If you try a staggered "butt" joint, you'd risk losing the "weathering" stripes John (Wiffen) is so clever at producing.

Why don't you open up a new thread so that your build doesn't get lost within mine - it is afterall, a significant shift away from the "as downloaded" version of the kit.  As such, it will make interesting reading for other members who want to do a bit of "kit-bashing" - me included. ;-)

You've probably already worked it out but, having removed those "fire breaks", you'll have to modify the roof panels.

The panels are designed to fit inside the fire breaks (and printed as such).  If you go for a "continuous" roof, you'll need longer panels.  Also, depending on how long your row is, you may have problems with the length of the printed slates suppl;ied in the kit. (Don't ask how I know .....................:roll::roll::roll:)

You could of course, use something other than the Scalescenes slates .............:roll:


 

Of course if the kit has grey slate tiles, then purchasing a full sheet of them is the way to go  TX18

That'll teach me to keep my mouth shut :roll:

I'll have to reach for a new  packet of blades and see if I can rise to the challenge.

Thanks for the encouragement - I think

Paul
