O-Scale - Part 2

Just a brief follow up to my O-Scale diversion - 
The roof is made from paper too - cut into strips like the walls, but perpendicular to the paint streaks.  The strips were then cut mostly through in an irregular pattern to represent cedar shingles.  Every few shingles I cut short or on an angle to suggest a roof in need of repair.
The strips were secured with double sided carpet tape like the walls.
After installing the strips I used an india ink wash to even out the tone of the roof, followed by drybrushing with an off white.   The photos show the unwashed vs. washed looks, and then the results of drybrushing.
