Thanks for the pics and info, I did check out there site, google translated it for me. Hard to see some of the detail, but I might take a hard look at them before the winter RR work starts in. Order now and have it on hand. May have more questions as to colors you like...I am doing late fall. I really like the new work on the white building and very impressed on the transformation of grassmastered grass to the weeds and green growth you end up with.

After being busy to clean the mess in my layout room for Leo's visit tomorrow I had some time to work a bit on Geezer's. Decided to go for a gray asphalt shingle on the living quarters. If my memorie's ok they are 18x36 with 32 cut's..so I took a piece of grey MIteint pastelpaper and drew lines every 6mm...



cutting 9mm strips...(nice to have a clean bench again)..



and made incisions with scissors on the 6mm lines



glued them on the roof with a spacing of 4mm..





think they gonna look ok after painting and weathering...

Looks good Martin, although 4mm is a little large for the exposure. Nominal is 5" or about .105" in 1:48 or about 2.7mm. I use 6" or 1/8" and it looks good, as does yours.
I like the white siding too, very appropriate.
And when Leo shows up I hope he brings along some of his fabulous food.

Thanks Frederic, it's quit a job very time consuming but I did finish the roof today.
Next in line the ridge caps kept them 18" long and the mansfield catalog said approx. 6" at the bottem. Looking at pictures on the web it looks like the covered half a shingle so I assumed the total size was 12" at the bottom.
Started with the same material but cut in the other direction. Scribed them gently in the middle to create a folding line...



cut them to size and folded them gently...



after that a drop of PVAC on the top and glued them on the roof with this as a result..



And Dave I know they are original tapered but who sees
Maybe I try that on the other side and turn this one to the back..still a few to go ..

Martin....what a beautifu jobyou are doing...Iam truly honored!
I think the allowance for weather is just fine on the shingles.
I roofedquite a few in my time, and yes, the weather was generally
set at 5". Infact, there were two set screws on the roofing hammer that
you could adjust to set the required coverage.
But I would think, that in our modeling world, such trivial things would
be of little importance, as who would be looking for the difference
in a couple mm???? You are doing a grand job, and to hell with
the rivet counters..... ;-)....It ain't gonna rain on your railroad anyway!!!
Great job!

looks great martin, its nice that you've made your own shingles, i used to do that when i was modeling english only i used the junkmail leaflets (because they are thinner and look better in oo scale) i hated it, but have great respect for those who do it
