Working on a rooftop

Greetings everyone,
   Well I know what the roof will look like, but not the building...strange isn't it.  A lot of time went into this.

  1. Now, that is the way to build a house - and learn mathematics: from the roof, down. Maybe a slow drive around city streets will find the sort of building that such a roof should crown.

    That really is amazing work, Captain: that is a roof that has protected the people beneath from a lot of weather.
    Cheers,
    Ion

  2. I don't know how to say it properly because this goes so far beyond good that it beggars hat the imagination. All that shingle work with the weathering done and the concrete blocks that look so real to the windows that look aged. It's another stunning piece of work.

  7. I was just wondering... Have you thought of something along the lines of H.P. Lovecraft's descriptions of old and worn New England architecture? You roof is not, of course, the gambrel type Lovecraft mentions several times in his stories, but even in Arkham there must have been some variety!

  10. I´m probably wrong but The only way I can think that you made the tiles is using corrugated card board, the inside bit when the top sheet is taken off(?)

    Lovely bit of scratchbuilding
    Cheers

  13. Gentlemen and Ladies...thank you for the comments...Paul the tiles come in sheets,their plastic, the trick is cutting them and of course painting them to look real.
