Rodney, this is great, but don't you have this giant railroad to finish? He must be a really good friend :D
Fun stuff,

  Here is what the shake shingles sheets look like coming off the laser





 With these colors





 I turned them into this.

 First to go on is the a straight strip using the border of the shingle sheet.





Using the guide lines on the roof start laying the strips.






  Once I have all the shingles laid, I use a pair of scissors to cut off the excess.

  I made a template out of .020" styrene, to cut the angle for shingle strips for where the two roofs meet.








 I glued the 3 roof pieces on and then slid a piece of .020" styrene in like the photo. This is to make the template for the other angle..









 Took a strip of rolled roofing and bent it in the center to use as flashing in the valleys. I painted it a gray to make it look somewhat like galvanized metal.Depending on the era your modeling, it could be a greenish copper copper for copper, aluminum color for aluminum and white or gray for PVC.















 

 Pull the backing off a little bit, on a shingle strip, stick it to the template, and cut with scissors. And started laying the strips
 




 






 One roof done and waiting to be trimmed














 With scissors, I carefully trim the edge and top.




 




 The first roof piece took me about 20 minutes to lay the shingle strips. The other 4 sides too about 4 and 1/2 hours to lay.

  Made some 24" wide strips for the roof caps and painted them a wash gray to look like galvanized metal. Used them for the ridge cap.










  I think for the most part, it's finished. Needs to be weathered a little.

Beautiful model!! The effort that went into the design shows in the quality of the build.

Also I didn’t know about the powdered stains. That’s very handy!

 Thanks David,  I think he will be.

 Thanks Craig
 Yea those powder stains work well. One kit will last most modelers a lifetime.

   The gentleman I'm doing this for is out of town till the 1st of August, so I have till then to get some details added.
 Today, I drew up the chimney and printed about 20 of them. After they cured, I shot some refer orange on one, let it dry and came back over it with a
wash of gray craft paint. Let that dry and wiped as much as I could off. It looks OK, but I'm going to do some experimenting with some joint compound on one tomorrow.







Close up









 Then I found some people and printed a couple of them, Here's one leaning against one of the poles

What was your source of plywood? I want to do some experiments with my boss' laser cutter. He's up for it if I get the material...

 Friday, while I was printing some IH stake trucks to go with kits, my original Photon screen quit working. So out of the 4 original Photon printers I have bought (2 in the fall of 2018 and the other 2, sometime in 2019), I'm down to only one working. I have the Mono 6K too, but I haven't dialed in the settings for Elegoo ABS like resin that I like the best.
 
 Anyways, of all the different cars and trucks I've  printed, I've never tried to paint any of them till Saturday. I couldn't  find a way to paint one of these and make it look good.
 This is one of the first things that I printed after getting my first Photon
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Screenshot of the truck in sketchup.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 So,  I started disassembling the truck in Sketchup into 3 parts. Cab,  chassis and bed.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I printed the parts and they didn't go together very  good.
 
 I decided to start with the cab and bed and work on  the chassis to make assembling easy,  after painting. I  printed up 16 cabs and 24 beds and started
 
 modifying the  chassis and my last Photon screen quit working today. I was on the 3rd  revision of the chassis when it stopped working.
 
 The rest  of today as been dialing in the resin on the Mono 6K and hope to get  back to printing the final revision of the chassis tomorrow.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 While waiting on the printer, I did get one painted.
