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.....

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?

Vince,
 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......

Mark,
 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.....
