And here's other side shot.

I like how messed up the window castings turned out.

So here's the roof metal glued on... it looks pretty real,

but I have mixed feelings about it.


Let me know what you think...

I think the roof looks good, normally not seen from the ground.


Roofing seems to get overlooked when building's are painted,

and unless they start to leak, little is done to maintain them.


The roof gives an indication of the age of the building versus a paint job.

I think your roof looks very good.


Here is a photo of some kind of workshop in Redlands CA. 

I think it dates back to the late 1800s or early 1900s.

Thanks for your thoughts...

I think the photo you included was why I was not sure about it.

The way a roof often rusts more uniformly color and texture wise.
Don't want a zebra effect even though I have seen metal do that.

It's always trying to get a realistic effect,
that doesn't distract from the scene.

Hi there.

So I decided to add some pastel rust to roof and seems to have helped ...

Plus got mast added, so basically done till it gets planted.

This was a fun build... never done a Builders In Scale kit before, great kits.

cheers
