Hi all,

Following from a thread about ridge capping on corrugated iron structures in the "Modelling The Gillpin Tram thread at I thought I'd share some other photos of how it was done in days past. 

I used to drive past this farm shed on my weekly commute to Canberra - usually it was too dark in the morning for photos, but then one day I had to be in Canberra only for a late morning meeting so I pulled up and took some photos....

From the road


One end

Other end and "back" wall

Now for some detail shots - one corner

Details on the end

Some of the corrugated sheets have been flattened. These appear to have rusted further than those with the original corrugations intact.


and the fence

and to close out - the roof detail....


And yes there is up to 3 layers of iron on there- No wonder the roof has developed a sag. The shed was still standing 3 years after these photos were taken. Not sure if it still is. it's been about 2 years since I've been down that way. 

For your inspiration,
