Weathering Martin Machine’s roof

The shingles are finished! The nice weather means the garden has beckoned again but I did manage to colour and chalk the tiles. Bob VG recommends colouring about half the tiles but the photos of the prototype seemed darker so I coloured them all. This is the look before I chalked up:

I then chalked the roofs a bit darker and more uniform as they don’t actually look that speckly in real life:

I still need to put on the vertical ribs on the snow shield. I think I will use paper and then I need to paint those and the valleys in a more metallic finish.
