Fiddling with the roof....


The lower roof level was built from more 2/3mm foamed PVC

For the tiling I am cheating and using corderoy! 
I dont have any suitable embossed plastic card and it would be complex to shape and fit on this roof. 
I have used corderoy before for mediteranean tiled roofing, following the idea of Gary Chalk for his pirate buldings in an old Wargames Illustrated.

The corderoy was glued to thin card with PVA.  This would give it some rigidity and flexibilty, to enable it to be shaped/curved.


Pieces were then cut to apporximate size and the edges sealed with superglue (the white staining) to add strength (A technique I have used before, borrowed from Silent Invader & Tin Shed Gamer)


After lots of measuring, adjusting, measuring, cutting, sanding & glueing I had the lower level complete.
The ridgelines and support for the upper roof are more 2mm foamed PVC.

Level one complete!

Now that is a creative solution.  Very cool.

Excellent, and I learned a new technique!  :-* :-* I would never have thought to use fabric.

Looking forward to seeing this in its final form.  Had forgotten about the corduroy technique that Mr. Chalk used - but definitely recall his pirate town.

Thanks for the feedback.  :D


Main structure of the upper level; again from 2mm foamed PVC.  4 pieces of tiling, the last one cut roughly to size.
The discolouration on the cardboard side is from the dried superglue, ready for trimming and sanding to size.


The completed upper roof, with ridgeline and triangular insert at each gable (again foamed PVC)


Both roof levels complete.  The corderoy will get a thin coating of Mod Podge to seal it and add a bit more strenth.
