Jose, that's pretty neat, looks good. But it appears to be WORK if you have a large area to do. Even in my scale, bricks are small, imagine doing this in HO or N...Yikes!

Well, cutting strips and then individual pieces is easy with a paper cutter. Then gluing them to a base using a jig to keep lines even is a piece of cake. Due to the texture probably won't look good in a scale under 1/35.

Hi Jose :wave:


I does look like an interesting, and FREE, textured material to use.


I checked out a similar everyday paper egg-carton yesterday, to see how that is.


Seems to me that it could be put to a number of different uses, not just bricks.
