Very nice work! Your mortar looks real on both the walls and chimney. I like the shingles too. Good Job!!

Funny you should mention the chimney - it's a Tichy plastic casting, and it's finished with just a wash of Titanium White acrylic paint!

Paper Creek Shingles

Actually, the shingles are by Paper Creek, and they're easy to install. The strips are long enough for a small roof like this. So, all you have to do is glue the strips, start at the bottom and follow the lines up the roof.

Only one thing could make them better - make them self-adhesive. I talked to George Taylor of Paper Creek the other day and asked him about this. He needs to cut the sheets 5 at a time, or the cost of the laser service is too high. Unfortunately, the adhesive will ooze out and get into the lower layers of paper when they're cut more than one at a time.
