Careful measuring and matching of slates the order of the day (unfortunately no progress last night as work got in the way!) I am pretty pleased the way the slates are turning out (this brings back memories of my summer holidays working for my father - he rebuilt many old structures and I enjoyed the slating the most - to see a uniform slate roof built from handcut slate is very satisfying)...anyway better get back to the model..!

Wayne, the flashing is paper. Yes, I am using the glue stick for the slates (i have just gone onto the second stick) The Elmers tacky glue is good for card however it turns the print pink if there is any overage on printed sheet/card. I have to finish for the day so progress so far is shown below.

Unfortunately weekdays are out for progress (too many things filling up my time but i do grab a chance to see whats happening on the forum) so at least its Friday and I have completed one further panel - more to come this weekend however I will need to go out to Hobby Lobby first thing (we dont seem to have the equivalent in the UK - its like the B&Q/Homebase chains but for Hobbyists) to buy another big batch of glue.

Nice work Darren, it is really looking great. Can't wait to see it setting on top of the structure. It must be fun working on something that

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement. I just hope I havent bitten off more than I can chew!!

At long last I have completed the slates (some 300+ strips of paper later!) - now there is lots and lots of trimming to do as well as the installation of the zinc coated cappings (i intend using grey paper and a thin brass road inside to create the rounded cap)

I was going to use either card or styrene for the bargeboards when I spotted the wooden stirrers in the supermarket last night(see below at the top of the picture.

For the bargeboards nothing looks more like wood than wood Darren, nice spotting. That's going to be a very, very nice model for your layout.

It's looking very, very impressive Darren and it looks like a really eye-catching, substantial building. Well done. :wink: :wink:

Spent the early part of the morning setting the roof and doing final adjustments (that pile of card next to the knife are pieces shaved/removed from the underside) Put the final pieces in the eaves at the end of the building to lock the roof in place (hence the expensive clamping system holding it while the glue dries!) but keeping it removable.

Have got the barge boards installed and once I am happy they are all dried out I can start cutting back the slates and installed the cappings on the roof.

Looks very realistic Darren. Excellent roof and stonework - you've managed to get a good 3D effect - well done.

Thankyou for the kind words. Have been working this evening on the roof (again - everybody must be getting bored!!). I completed the cappings & flashings - cappings were made from brass rod covered in printed paper to give the rounded section. I am pretty happy the way they turned out. (the scalescenes capping is more suited to a concrete/clay tile roof) Lots of trimming and touch-up on the roof left but will now let it dry overnight.








Darren
