Plastruct markets this sheet as HO. (Do not be confused by their web page wthat states HO, yet 1/100 scale. They further state, "The listed scales are only suggestions as many patterns have no definitive size.")

Both sheets are 12" x 7" and .020 (0.5mm) thick.

Wood Shake Shingles is a good product for scratchbuilding and modifying models. They look good. Recommended.
