90% completed and closing in on several details, this is pretty much how she'll be looking with the Crutchfield House, the premier hotel of Chattanooga in the background. Not my backdrop though.
When viewing this structure in period photos they all have the roof showing up white. Being a metal roof of tin, that is understandable given it would be reflecting the sun. But the actual color of course is not white. After looking at many photos of tin roofs on line, several conversations with friends and one or two with metal workers, the roof has a dull to very low gloss of gray. I am still experimenting such as a medium gray with light gray dry brushing to a semi metallic gray color on the cupola. All brush painting and no airbrushing or spray painting.
