Hello all, I have a few small pieces of H&R brick sheet material left in my scrap box that probably won't be there much longer. My question is to scratch builders, in n-scale, and how you handle large segments of brick wall when bashing isn't an option. I am envious of the large scale modelers around here who can carve bricks into plaster ... I am not going to carve brink in n-scale. I have toyed with having walls laser cut but that is still too expensive given the amount of engraving that is required and I don't have any friends with laser cutters at their disposal.

Is Holgate and Reynolds brick still available or does anyone know of a better product or method?

Thank you,
Joe <><

Joe,
I am also a fan of H&R who is hoarding his last bits of the stuff. I saw a review of a new styrene sheet material in either MR or RMC last year, and I got some directly from the manufacturer. Right now, they have limited distribution in the US (they are in Canada). You might find some of their sheeting in Dollhouse shops.

Here is a link showing the HO brick sheeting (they have several kinds). http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8143&whichpage=5

They a website that shows some of the sheets.

I think that they have a scale that is good for N-Scale as well.

I hope that this helps.

Thank you Bruce. I have looked at the website and they do appear to have an interesting selection of materials. I am going to have to see about placing an order.

Joe,
I wish that I had the review in front of me, but I think that they said the 1:200 scale was good for N-Scale. I ordered the 1:100 for use in HO, and it was fine.
