After trying it with cardboard to a result I'm not happy with, I decided to just sculpt it. I love it, but it is going to take foreveeeeeer...

Not exactly fast, but I'm making good progress on the Fubarni tower roof. The shingles are a lot faster to do now than the first ones were.

That’s looking great!
You should seriously consider whether you could get those components cast.

I know your pain when it comes to sculpting shingles!

Thanks Mike!

I could certainly get the doors and windows made separately, if people wanted them. The smaller roof too, as it's for a standard pringle size, even if that might be a bit big for the the kind of home casting I do. I just don't know if people would buy it. Wasn't there already a set of stuff like that available in the past by another forum member?

Thanks Lost Egg. Smiley

Almost done with the small roof now, and good progress on the big one too.

It’s the standard dilemma whether to just get it finished, or try to get sections cast up (but risk disrupting the creative flow!).
Brandlin did a lovely little laser cut set, but he stopped doing those a few years ago. I know there would be a nice level of interest in the roof... I’d like one for one thing!

Shingles are done on the small roof, I just need to add a joint between the top row and the chimney. Getting closer to the top on the big one too.

Thanks!  It is open ended voluntarily, as a docking platform for the balloon, hence the concave curve. Smiley

I do need to add a winch or other contraption to attach the balloon to, that will go on the balcony.

Amazing!!
I’d definitely buy cast roofs if you’re of a mind to make them available..the balcony too.
Looking forward to seeing it painted.

Getting cast of the smaller roof is in talk, as well as other small accessories (doors, windows, etc). The big roof and the balcony probably won't happen though.
