Wow Harry
These look really good and I can definitely use them. I need something for my Hamilton Dinghies kit.
Thanks

aartwmich,

Thank you,

Yes they are paper and are cut into the strips execpt for the ends, after I painted them I just cut down the end of the strips and they were free, then when I placed them on the roof I was careful to stagger the strips to get an non-uniform look to them. The ones I used came in the kit but I have seen them available for sale, not sure who makes them, but somewhere I have a few packages of them.

Harry, you probably have some of these somewhere also... Builders in Scale used to make shingle strips that were cut the same way. The main difference was that the BIS shingles were made from cedar and not paper, and they came with the adhesive already on them. I still have about 1/2 package somewhere.

Also, South River Model Works includes in their kits shingle sheets that are very similar to the SW sheets. For some of the mill kits, SRMW includes "slate" shingles that are pretty neat. They look a lot like the "wooden" shingles, except that they are made from a heavy gray paper.

Anne, I'll see what I can do about a photo of the smoke jack.

Anne, here are a couple of photos of the smokejack. It looks a little more blue in color than it really is because I forgot to turn off the overhead fluorsescents before taking the photo.

Mike, Nice stack! I like the idea as well of putting it thru the wall, to be a little different. Does Brett read this forum? If so - Brett: Where are my kits???? Its like the Christmas morning that never comes.... Each time I see my mailman coming up the driveway, I look to see if he has any packages with him! Nothing but bills, credit card offers, second mortgage offers, more bills, & no packages from SierraWest! I'm waiting for Foss, Railroad Camp, & Wood Cutters Shack! Any Day now...

Thanks, Jimmy. As I said earlier, I still have to put some "tar" around the base and add the support rods.

I don't know how often Brett looks in on the discussions. The last time he logged on with his username was in early January. But I think he indicated to Bags that he did check in and read the thread periodically. So who knows....

Hi all
Mike I like the looks of your stove pipe. I never thought to put mine through the side of the building. Great job.[:-thumbu]

Jimmy if you are waiting for the mailman you are waiting for the wrong person.
Brett uses UPS. If your UPS driver is like mine check your shrubs for a package.[:-censored]
Brett did say that he reads the forums. I am sure he is probably one of the many guests we have.
