Hi Jerry, Tom & Frank B:

Thanks for the compliments. Much appreciated. Here's a few progress pics. I fixed the rafter tail that's sticking up.

Good as always.  Those rafter tails - are they one piece laser cut?

Hey Guys:

This is finished except for the main roof. The instructions suggested adding A banister to the stair railing. I did this and also added them to the platform railings. It give it A more finished look.

Karl,
 Your tower build is looking great. This Bar Mills kit has a nice design.
Everyone loves a signal tower for their RR !

Hey Steve, Tom & George:

Thanks for the great compliments. Much appreciated as always. Finished this one up. Instead of folded pieces of paper on the roof peaks I used Separate cap shingle. I make them by cutting 1/8" x 1/8th inch pices of light card stock.
