Can anyone suggest where I can find a stone paper that would represent the stonework in the cottage below, or do I need to use fire cement and scartch it all out!!

Thanks.

You could try Superquick random stone or perhaps Metcalfe (although that might be a bit too dark).

Do you want a fairly exact representation of random stone or would dressed stone courses do the job? Slaters plasticard do both, I have used the dressed stone courses in N gauge, also available in 4mm

items 0421, 0423, 0424 4mm; 0435 2mm

item 0419 4m; 0421 2mm

I didn't like the colour so painted it with emulsion (from match pots) using a small 4" roller, it's easy to mix colours of the matchpots, this was my result, I found that with handling while building that the emulsion on some of the more prominent stones tended to rub off a bit to give slightly different colours.

Best of luck with the thatch!!

Try Scalescenes : http://scalescenes.com/scratchbuilders-yard 

Scroll down to TX40 Dry Stone, TX47 Coursed Rubble and TX48 Squared Rubble. You may find one of these useful. For £1.99 (each), you can print as much as you need and more !

Cheers, Gary.

This [the stone] is Scalescenes 'Squared Rubble TX48', any use? For a more random effect, as in your picture, look at Scalescenes 'TX47 Coursed Rubble'.

If you go the scalescenes route, you can change colours to some extent by tweaking your printer settings, or if you can get the image into a photo editing programme then colour changes can be done there.
