Included in the kit is some black material to use for asphalt roll roofing.  I grabbed my straight edge and a scalpel and cut it into 3 foot width strips.  I applied transfer tape to the roofs, cutting the tape oversize and trimming to length by laying the building upside down on my cutting pad and going along the gable edge with the scalpel.  Next up, expose the adhesive of the transfer tape and apply the roofing, overlapping slightly at the seams.  Doug Foscale lets his roofing overlap slightly on the eaves and gable ends of his display models.  I like that look, so copied it on this structure.

Your build is coming along very nice. I like the colors and I have a special place in my heart for John Deere. I started my Engineering career working for them - great company.

John,
Thanks for your nice comment.  FWIW, I have John Deere moldboard plows.  They turn a better furrow and pull easier than any others I have used.  Looking forward to spring when I can put them to good use.

Karl,

Thanks for the compliment.  I learned a lot about using signs from following your threads.

Jerry,

Looks like you are doing a jack up job on the Jack Em Up Tire build. ;D ;D


Well done.

Tom,

Thanks for your nice comment. 

This build has taken a back seat to the layout, but I did make a little more progress.   The rafter tails and gable fly rafters are done.  The underside of the roof card is painted, even though the lighting makes it look like it is not.
