Finally DONE with this.

I added an antenna on the chimney. My shitty soldier job actually worked out to my advantage.
The MG keystones were made of a graphic that the @Ed Kapuscinski made from scratch. I printed these on photo paper and shaved thickness off them with a technique that @Lemosteam suggested. I also added that little vent on the left side.
I painted the rafters brown after talking with some PRRT&HS folks.
I weathered the roof with powders.




Excellent!!!

Looks great Josh.  I like the dark rafters.
If you really want to be fastidious, paint the tip of the chimney pipe black.  :)

Ageing is inevitable - maturity is optional.

Here's a Clerihew about Ed. K.

Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
But mention his law
and you've pulled your last straw!

Alternate version:
Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
He asks excitedly "Did you say Ménage à Trois?"
No, I said "Ed's Law."

A post to the AltoonaWorks FB page, earlier this week, mentioned that demolition work on the prototype MG tower has commenced.
