For the rear rafters, I followed Doug's template.

If you place the 2X6s on the template it is hard to know just where to cut the angles. The 2X6s cover the template where the cut needs to be made.

Here is a trick I use when using templates like this to cut the rafters.

Draw a pencil line through the area where the 2X6s need to be cut. Shown below.





More in a few.

Here is another little trick to use. Each rafter doesn't need to be cut on both ends. When one is cut, the angle of the other one is the same angle.

In the photo below, you can see for example, I cut two for the left rafter. This second rafter represents the cut section from the one on the left.



Take the other rafter and reverse the angle and then glue in place. You can see in the next photo the angle is perfect. One cut for two rafter ends.



I used the weights as the paper template had a fold in it.

More in a few.

Another nice looking kit build Uncle Tommie. 

BTW, are you sure your only drinking a few Diet Pepsi a day?  All this recent model building makes me think otherwise.  Just saying.
