I really like the way you're building the roof. It's looking good!

It's only make-believe

Thanks Mike, indeed, Rusty Stumps real cedar shingles. They are my favorite. I need to find who is making them now. ~mike

Howdy,

Today reminds me of a song by George Jones: I must have done something bad... First, when I was on the last row of shingles, I noticed the new shingles from a new package were random length instead of fixed length, DARN. So I cut the random length shingles to fixed length. I don't see real cedar shingles on Rail Scale Model's website, so... What a pain.

Next, I started to put the opposite roof assembly on the rafters I noticed the side I had already glued had the shingles pointing up instead of down. It might have leaked...so I removed all the rafters and will start again.

Lastly, I counted the Rusty Stumps windows I used for the clerestory and was nine short. Darn again, but I was able to order more from RSM...just a delay.

I have to go to a lodge meeting tonight or I would pour an afternoon glass of wine or two and watch an old WWII war movie.

On the good side, I finished the inside divider wall to match the prototype.

Here are a few photos of my challenges:


Rafters removed for yet another glue up




Random length shingles versus fixed length




Divider Wall



That is about it for a few days.

Have fun,
Mike

Mike, can't tell you how many times I've had to tear something wrong apart and start over again.

Thanks Philip. Sadly, Walt did not sell the cedar shingles to Rail Scale. Stephen from RSM does have cedar shingles but they are not on his site. I take a look at them. ~mike

Thanks for the encouragement and sympathy Rick. I just hate doing things twice, much less three times, LOL. ~mike

Mike, this guy here sells cigar wraps. You'll have to cut them to size. I used them on the Geezer tribute build. Worth a look. They are .015 thick x 4 &1/2"long x 2 &7/8" wide.

JoeB, I am cut to the quick by your mean comment about light bulbs. I don't think I'll put any lights in this project, that way, no problems. For those who do not know, I burned out the light bulbs on my Cats Head Pier project three or four times. ~mike

Howdy folks,

I finally got a bit of bench time in today and tackled the roof for the third time. Here are a few photos of the results. Removable roof is a real challenge. I think I said that before; however,...

This shot is inside the roof assembly attached to the rafters:



Here is another view of the roof section:



Here is the removable roof, in place.


Next up are the clerestory windows.

Having fun on the Brazos,
Mike

Thanks Philip. It is fragile. I'll add bracing to complete the triangles when I get the clerestories completed (the vertical braces will provide the support and attachment points for the clerestories).

Have fun,
Mike
