Building Papers

Postby bangorstu » Sun Oct 29, 2017 4:48 pm

Just bought some 20mm buildings and want to make them look a little less bland.

Hence I'm looking for building papers -something a glue onto the front that is printed into something more interesting than just plain white.

Ideally something suitable for Normandy 1944, but all suggestions and recommendations welcome!

So, any ideas?

Thanks!

Get ye to your local model railway shop. There is the old Superquick range that includes brick and stone papers, AFAIK still in print. The various German manufacturers make embossed brick and stone papers along with plastic sheets.

If you're feeling a little more adventurous there are numerous wall treatments in plastic, from Slaters plastikard, Wills & Evergreen (there are probably others). They require a bit more in the way of modelling skills than paper sheets, and of course painting, but otherwise aren't hard to use.

Have a look here, it'll give you an idea of what's available.. OO/HO will do for 20mm.

There are websites you can print the textures out from if you have a colour printer
