NOCH currently catalogs 25 sheets in the following scales:

1/48 - O scale
HO scale - 1/87
TT scale - 1/120
N scale - 1/160

The subjects are wood and slate shingles, cobblestones, brick work, stucco (ashlar) walls, tar paper and tile roofing.

Old Wood Shingles
Advertised for HO scale - 1/87, it can easily be applied models ranging from 1/72 to 1/100.

In HO the 7 14/16 in. x 4 5/16 in. sheet will roof residential and small industry sized buildings, while two sheets will roof most lineside sized structures.
