Thanks Frank!
The only other points I should add about the copper roof are,I started to apply the paint at the peak and dragged the brush down from there.
Always working from the top down to the bottom.
And also trying to completely covering the area under the brush with one stroke.
And I applied the A&I while the panels layed flat so the Alcohol & India ink would not just run to the bottom of the roof panel.

Thanks Larry!
It's funny you mention of it reminding you of the Toronto Farmers Market.
I kept thinking that it reminded me of the Coliseum building at the Canadian National Ex.
That's the place that inspired the copper roof for this building.

Greg



Yes that is the one I was thinking of, I think that when I used to go there were always horses in it so I was thinking Farmers.

It is a beauty, I will be following along.

Phenomenal structure Greg! Wow! You'll have to design an addition to your home to house the enormous layout you're going to need with structures of such magnitude and magnificence. I'll be following along!

Thanks Chuck,Mike & Jerry!

Chuck,I worked at the Canadian National Exhibition(CNE) for 16 years,setting up sound systems.
So I spent a lot of time on the roof of the coliseum running speaker wires over the roofs there,for on grounds PA systems.
Anyways,parts of those roofs are copper,with the beautiful green patina on them.
And I just got to study them real close sometimes.

Mike,will you please explain this very sound way of thinking to my wife.

Jerry,I can honestly say,that I've never tried to build a loser.

Greg

You need an airstrip to land that P-3. The building has a great Gotham City look to it.

Wonderful job. It's always a thrill to see what a true craftsman can do with plastic kits. Yours looks simply amazing...but then I'm partial to huge industrial structures.

Absolutely wonderful! Great subject to model... I have four dream players working, and until recently they have worked flawlessly, then one player has developed a hiss of sorts. I will be following this build!

Wonderful stuff! That structure looks perfectly in proportion - both within itself, and in relation to the ship.

Cheers, Mark.

Greg your tribute builds keep getting better and better.

I love the story behind the names of the crane drivers. Those guys sure do some awesome work.

Greg,

Just found this thread, love the copper roof. The pier must be making a fortune to afford a copper roof on the warehouse . So you sound and lights so all you are missing is the smell. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.

Thank you for your posts Karl,Dallas,Cliff,Troels,Mark & Wes!

Karl,a Gotham city look to it,I guess that makes me the joker then.

Dallas,yes I have been a busy bugger!

Cliff,coming from someone who seems to be the master of building his own large industrial buildings.
And who also has also kitbashed this exact kit into a replica of a real place in New Orleans.
I thank you again,for your words of encouragement!

Troels,nice to hear from you!
And I'm glad you like what you see so far.

Mark,I built this structure with the R.A. SANTOS in mind.So it's nice to read your comments about the scale of these large models working together.

Wes,they are certainly getting bigger & bigger!

Thanks again everyone!

Greg

Hi Ron,I missed your post while answering the others.
Thanks very much for your nice words about my latest creation.
Copper was much cheaper back when the Magoun terminal building was constructed.
