Koltorp - Headframe, corrugated roofs

This article was published Mar 26, 2017.

title


The roofs of these buildings were not covered with tiles but instead corrugated iron sheets were used. Tiles were more for permanent buildings. Also, I would not be the one climbing up on a ladder to change tiles that high up .... :smile:

I took some hardcard and put it through my crimple tool and then cut into the sizes I wanted. Mixed a middle gray and splashed on. When dry I dry brushed on a few streaks of browns, reds and orange. So far only testing on loose pieces, but starting to get the hang of it already. Final will be when the sheets are glued on to the roofs.
