Thanks Karl, always appreciate your words of encouragement.  Thanks for following along, it is a heavy beast when I lift it.  I think of the South River Model Works Roundhouse kit and can't imagine how heavy those walls would have been.

I worked on assembly of the walls and the roof for the turbine shed add on.  The roof is just placed there for now.  Next step is the main roof and trim.  Hopefully, I can pick up the pace a bit, work seems to get in the way of fun sometimes.

I installed the trim and roof panels this weekend.  I see from the photos I forgot to touch up the trim, lol. My next step is figuring out the type of roofing.  It would be real simple to throw on the already to install 3 tabs, see photos.  Another option is slate.  I never had slate for any of my kits but I must have had something in the works ... I have quite a few old files and kit ideas, those might be good for a laugh.

Anyway, I took a photos of the sheet, I even lightly scribed on guidelines for laying them down straight.  I coloured them with various prismacolor markers (various shades, 70%, 50%, 40%, eggshell and blending)
and laid them out quickly to get some thoughts or feedback.

Thanks for following along,  Joe
