The Hippy Shapes

Time to put a roof onto the Oberon Wood garage.

Once again I am using the roofing slate sheets from Ratio. These are quite thick - around 060" I would guess - and the plastic is harder to cut and work than styrene.

On this model I have gone to the effort of slimming down the edges which has to be done by scraping away with the scalpel and can be a little tiresome.

A complication with the garage that the neighbouring houses don't have is that it is a semi-hipped design which requires me to get my head around angles - never a strong point for me.

It went about as well as can be expected. Just the ridge tiles to go and that'll be the roof taken care of.
