I added them to the office roof and the covered stairwell.

I added a piece of bracing to the edge of the roof that will mount to the main building. this was done to prevent sagging over time, and also can be used as a gluing surface. Because of the slope of the office roof, keep bracing a little back from the edge

I added the 2 roofs (rooves?) to the building. I'm also showing an after the fact photo of the bracing added to the stairwell roof.

I gave the roofs a little dry brushing with some white acrylic. When this dried, I gave it a wash with some medium A&I.

Before I start shingling the main roof I used a black marker to create a shadow on the edge of the roof. I also could have used the dark green but I don't think it will be seen. I glued the underside of the roof where the seams are.

Jimmy,
    Is it too late to have some sheets made for sale at Springfield?  (I figure it would be as the show is in about 2 weeks!!)
