That tile technique is amazing! I will have to try it sometime.
This is a great MOC, Jim! Very detailed build. And, this is an awesome building technique.... Did you come up with this, or if not, where did you see this before?
But requires a heckuvalot of jumper bricks! (I assume you've been buying in bulk?) I agree that the quarter-overlap looks much nicer (and more realistic) than the half-overlap seen on most such roofs.
That gentle slope up to the gutters is fantastic. Actually, the gutters are pretty cool by themselves, but that amazingly long row of jumpers is such an amazing architectural accent. Wow.
I think it looks great! I love all the jumper tiles, they give it a very unique look. The roof is a great idea, and I really like the stained glass windows.
Awsome church Jim!
I can't think of anything to add to everyone else's replys but...I really like the church.
Nice find! While I'm not particularly taken with the front view, the roof ensures that it looks excellent from angles like this one: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1826255
For something that's made of bley, I guess it's pretty good...
Actually it's quite fantastic, and I'd say that even if you weren't my boss. I'm really going to have to invest in jumper plates to explore that roof trick.
I don't know how I missed this before. I'm gonna have to explore with those jumper plates and my two x two round tiles to stretch them out for a shingle look.
