Surprised to hear about the fit issues...never had them in a Fos kit. Taking note for when I get to my Pub Crawl. Thanks,

Thanks, folks!  I'm back at this.  Added some supports for the roofs.

All the roofs are now on.  First need to add trim under the roofs, then weather the roofs.   I may leave off the rafter tails on the left side building . I extended the corrugated roofing out beyond the edge about a scale 6 inches and I don't think the rafter tails will be as visible.  They would be a PITA to put on in the area between the buildings as well.  We'll see.

Jeff, if the roofs aren't permanently attached, you could add the rafter tails to the roofs and then place them on the buildings.
Thanks,
Donato

Biding my time till I can start my layout and build nice stuff like all you folks .... (said with envy). :-)

Donato, they are permanently attached.  I don't think they'll be missed.  It's place on the layout is near the back, and I doubt they'd be very visible.  You can see it here in the back row.  The empty spot in front is for FOS' "Red Light District".  I'll move these structures around some, maybe replace some with others in "the stash", and see how it turns out, but I think the Pub Crawl will stay in the back.

Thanks for looking in, Tommy.  Even though it won't be seen from so far away, I wanted to try using some Gallery Glass Liquid Leading to simulate the tar on the tarpaper roof.  Some pastels and the tar and I think it looks good.  Next up is the corrugated roof.

Well, I've finished the kit.  I didn't post in the interim as I just wanted to get it finished.  I basically weathered the corrugated roof (and the other roofs) with pastels.  Added roof details, including the billboard (which I notice I should have weathered the back of it, glad it won't be seen).  Placed tar (the Gallery Glass) around everything that touched the roof (except the pigeons).  Added the awnings and lights over the one sign and it's done.  The awnings were kind of a pain, they're printed flat on a sheet and when you bend them they "weather" a bit.  I glue some stripwood in these to make the edges 90 degrees.  On the center one I forgot to leave space for the window when I attached the stripwood, so had to remove some of it and the awning got pretty beat up.  Oh, well, just more weathering.  The little windows in the "attics" are kind of a pain as well. To have them open outward, they don't quite fit the sash, they're probably supposed to open inward.  Next time, I'll just glue them to the inside of the sash.  There's a piece of sidewalk and some details (junk, fire hydrant) that I didn't use as I don't know what kind of sidewalk I'll use when it's "planted".  Anyway, let me know any comments, pro or con. 


Jeff
