Some pics of the roof covering going on. Mounting card pasted with the Scalescenes Aged Clapboard render has been used as an outer cover leaving the window openings clear. The outside of the card will be covered with simple strips of masking tape which will then be painted in black acrylic - this will nicely simulate an asphalt covering (this worked well on my model of a track side store on my Cheslyn layout).
What's great about taking photos during a build is that it shows up details that need adjusting - note the two support columns that are slightly (but annoyingly) out of plumb.
Progress has been slow I'm afraid after having spent 3 days in hospital with Kidney stones. Excruciatingly painful business that has left me weak as a kitten for a while. I'm just thankful that it has been nothing more serious! It's great just to be back at home tackling the model again.
Eagerly awaiting the arrival of some pendant lights from Express Models - that should help balance out the light levels and make things a little brighter inside. I'm toying with the idea of using the Scalescenes Aged Corrugated render on transparencies for the windows or simply using clear plastic. This Corrugated finish worked well for my Barrow Hill window lights, but I'm wondering if it'll only make the interior darker. Comments welcome.
