Hey thanks for all your comments!
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?
Thanks Sir Nelson
I have not seen the tile roof technique done before, so unless my subconscience remembers it, I came up with it (maybe not first of course).
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.
Thanks loads Lord Mikal
I'm glad you like it. I have bought some of the grey jumper bricks in bulk.
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.
Thanks Sir Terrance
The whole point of this MOC was to explore and demonstrate the value of the jumper plates. I really like them and believe that they can be more than a way to center an object.
Awsome church Jim!
I can't think of anything to add to everyone else's replys but...I really like the church.
Thanks Remyth, glad you enjoyed it!
For those of you who asked for more info on the stained glass windows,
I started a new post
. The stained glass windows discussion took up too much space for this post.
