:bg: You would remember it if you had. I may scrounge up a piece of scrap and post it. The reason for the roof tin application is as follows. The roof section are cast resin as is the rest of the kit. It has nice detail but was horribly warped. That is not a big problem with resin because it can be heated and reformed. Just be careful. The valleys on the roof do not even com close to matching. Evidence of this is look closely at pic 6. To the right of the Coke machine you can see a line starting there and going down. It ends up 1/4 " away from the next wall . I had to cut a slice off of another wall to get the corrugations to look right. Anyway the gaps on the roof are compound angles twice over. They start out close and angle away from each other in all directions. I could not even begin to fill it or grind down into the roof to lay down tin and relay the shingles. It was the best I could do and I won.t even tell you where the roof is not even there. It's visible if you saw all of the pics. If you had to work in this shop you would get seasick walking end to end.  I do have a fix for the gas pump lean and it involves a woman, a car. and a hill. Due to the era, no cell phone though. These are the things I like to here sometimes because it gives us all some fresh insight, but if persons start counting nuts and bolts, I will probably get out of joint.  Just remember some people may have style , but I got class. Just my opinion but I'm sticking to it.
