You will receive five 2.5" x 7 3/4" sheets of scale cedar shake shingle roofing. Each sheet covers 9 square inches. That's a total of 780 scale square feet per package! 

Each sheet includes approximately 4" of ridge cap material to finish roof lines, or anywhere two planes come together. 

When Precision Counts
This is a great fit for fine O scale modeling. 

Did you know that in some locations, shake shingles were often uséd to cover the sides of houses or buildings as well? 

Finishing Suggestions
Instructions are included along with a link to our website with more details. 

Start with the lowest layer and work up. Apply a thin line of glue across the top of the shingle strip, but don’t put glue on the shingle tabs.

Remove the rectangular ridge caps from the shingle sheet. Any tab remains can be carefully removed with a gentle carving motion using a sharp razor knife, or the edges can be lightly sanded with 220 grid sandpaper. Apply glue to the back. Attach one at a time and let dry. Continue from outside to inside, finishing with a piece that covers the center.

To add depth to the roof, use the edge of a razor knife to randomly lift shingle tabs. Weather the roof with acrylic weathering chalks. 

We're really proud of this product and we know you'll love it too!
