Howdy All,
 I managed to get the roof pretty much finished, and weathered a couple days ago. I have now officially put this build on hold, so that I can put all of my efforts into my other project. Thanks for taking a look...

Looking good "ten fingers".  Will you be posting progress photos of your other project you'll be working on?
 Thanks for the compliment. I will not be posting pics of the other project. That I will leave up to the recipient, if they so choose to do so. You can always get a first hand look anyways.....

Beautiful. Your tar around the roof vents is nice and "trim." Not three scale feed wide like mine are. My recollection is that I used toothpicks to apply a mixture of white glue and Polly S Grimy Black it but they still came out very fat and blobby. What is your technique?

 Thanks for the compliment, I use a .008 wire dipped in the mix. These actually came out thicker than normal, as I wanted a darker mix, so I added some black paint to the grimy, but did not want to thin with water......

Well! these are not the final photos, but I made some good progress. George really put a lot of detail on this roof. I still have to weather the roof, and finish the pipes from the pump house, and add the front canopy (which is built). I could not fit all the pieces into the pics, but for the final ones they will be present.
I am going to put this build on hold for just a little while, as I have another project I have started on, that I need to get done for a member here. Thanks for taking a look, hopefully I can finish this up within the next couple months.....

Hey All,
 Been a while since I have posted, but I have been making progress on the roof and such. I should have some close to final pics in a couple of days. Mean while, here are three beauties that I picked up over the past couple of weeks. The Tap & Die, was in the first 100-150 kits, as Bob V gave me the story on the price change. I will be back in a couple days....
