You can get a white edge with black tiles pretty easily, you might just need to increase the thinkness of the roof by a plate or accept that the black/white transition isn't going to be at the exact same place as your house.
If you are going to do it, then you could cut thin strips of any normal sticker. Or, if you really want to paint then Citadel do a white base coat. I wouldn't use spray - hitting the edge of the tile would be a challenge.
Would the scale not suit attaching a SNOT white tile or white plate beneath the roofline and using black tiles/plates for the roof?
bobabricks what a great idea. I think thats how I will work this
cakeinmilk thank you. If the tape doesnt work, this is my next stop
MattsWhat why Lego? Well, I decided I wanted to MOC, and landed on doing my house. I didnt start out wanting a model of my house. Plus Lego is so much fun to work with, why not give it a shot and try to be as close as i can? I am not worried about changing a few 10cent pieces.
scrumper white tape it will be! It will look better, since black tape wont match the black roof tiles. And I love the idea of painting my house, especially since I dislike green badly. While I am at it, I should probably change the roof, it is going to be a disaster to build from Lego!
BTW, here is what I am talking about..I cant find a white window in my drawers so i just left it open for the moment...it looks funny because of the back being green too.
and here is the house so far....it's certainly not perfect as i built it out a little too wide, but pretty fun to do. Not using LDD or anything, just these pictures.
And finally, in case you were wondering what the floor plan of my house is...accurate colors as well.
