zoomed on and blew it up, nice shingles or slate tiles.

Question about the pointed peaked roof dormer, it goes into the square cupola, somehow doesn't look correct, as tooo large.

 Is it supposed to be like that  ?

For Mike...

Tell me about this 35 Chevrolet.  I have had a 41 since 1976 and it is my regular driver.   Before that was a 29 flat bead truck, a 25 Superior K touring, and a 47 panel truck.

So what are you working on here ? ? ?

see ya

The original idea was for the line of the dormer to align to the base of the cupola.  But I screwed that up.  Too much work into this to do it over..  :(   If someone asks, "The dormer was added to hold a crane inside the foundry to move stuff more easily in and out of the building."

I responded to the message you sent to me , along with my direct email address.

"tell me about this 1935 Chevrolet"?   I have 3 of them.....;coupe, phaeton; roadster.

All are street rods,, hot rods.  This is a model rail road site, don't think talking about hot rods is what others want to read about.

I would alter it.......remove it and make it wider & lower if your worried about damaging + exposing the nice slate roof.   Its a visual thing.    You could cut the rear of the peaked dormer 3 feet away from the cupola and slip a filler piece in there.

The structure looks like something Van gelder at SRMW would produce.  What kit, no idea.
