Are you talking about the gold parts of the roof? The ones that look like bananas?

If so, you could always start with a box, apply bend modifier, then FFD the end of it (where it tapers). You could also use splines, convert to poly and model the piece that way.

If your talking about the tiles, I would create the actual geometry for the vertical array of tiles, then texture the bottom layer of tiles. Hope this helps...

After embossing, acid corrosion details.As a result, only the embossed lines.It looked like a penetrable material and corrosion.How to using bump make details of the curved roof?
