Close, but no. They were made by scanning in some leftover shingles on a sheet that came with a Craftsman Kit I assembled a while ago. I combined several of the images in Adobe Indesign added some light gray background and printed them out on a sheet of large labels. From there I cut rows of shingles out and fit to size on each of the roof panels. The shingles are overlapped just like the real thing (1/3rd of a row so the shingles are 3 layers deep) so there in a slight 3-D effect. I think they will look quite good after they are complete and have been weathered. Hoping to get it finished this weekend.Ray - did you hand-lay those shingles individually? Sheesh, there's a task that requires the Gift of Patience, hat's off to you sir!
