Tar-bitumen roof weathered, 1 mm thick
Item: 56006
Size: 7 14/16 in. x 4 5/16 in. (20 x 11 cm)

Laser-Cut Textured Building Sheets
NOCH laser-etches these sheets in high quality cardboard. The thin sheets are custom painted.

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

Tar-bitumen Roof
Advertised for HO scale - 1/87, Tar-bitumen Roof 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.

Tar-bitumen Roof sheets are realistic weathered tar paper roofing.

Thanks, Fred. I've seen sandpaper strips used before. I have had success using masking tape, painted with gray or black primer, then dry-brushed with downward strokes with a lighter gray paint. This company has done all that for us! -Sean
