I started off with some plans published in the NGSLG for a small whistlestop that I wanted to build for my N-Scale layout



and after taking a little "modeler's license", I ended up with this

Great to see some scratchbuilt N scale structures!  Well done.

Nice!  What did you use for the roof?  Looks like sheet brass...

This is a great model and as mention before, the roof is outstanding and screams for a tutorial.

I also love the roof.  When I was a small boy my family lived in a house with a tin roof which looked alot like the one you did.  Also has tin siding which was a red color.
