The roof looks a bit dense to me, as I can't see any poly's for all the edges. How many polygons in the roof?

perhaps the smoothing was a bit too much as it's a solid blue so I would remake that bit more efficiently.

I just quickly did this to give you an idea of what I mean

Base mesh something like this although this was done in a few seconds so you could make it a bit nicer


It will look like this when Smooth Mesh Preview mode is used in Maya 2008 (press no3 key)



Then convert the mesh preview to poly's using linear and it will look like this


Should be more efficient.

Your mesh looks fine apart from the number of edges going across the roof, take some of those out before you smooth it and you'll be fine
