Eric,  Love the work that you have done so far.  Have you written somewhere on how you do the shingles.  In HO scale the shingles are some of the most realistic I have ever seen

Hi Mike,
I've explain  how I make the shingles on the old forum.
It's a technic that I used since 20 years or so.
the technique consists in cutting irregular strips in the wood of strawberries chopine sold on farmers' markets. The color of the wood cover a large variety of hue between the pale yellow to orange. the width of the strip varies between 4 to 8 scales inches, Once the strip are cut, I cut the shingles with the chopper.
The I glue each shingle on the support, when a raw is done, I make a bevel from the top  to the middle of the raw, and glue the next raw on this bevel.
Once all the surface is cover, I stain the shingles with strong AI solution and make a very light white dry brush to Higlight and fade a little bit of the shine due to the AI solution.
The only one problem of this shingles are there thickness. there are twice more thick than real.

Eric

Thank you for your comment Ed, I muche appreciate it.
Sharing with each other is a great part of our hobby and in my opinion, the best way to progress. I've learn a lot here and on the old forum, and I continue to learn each day
