Any suggestions where I can obtain a 4mm scale stone paper to represent the stone as used in traditional Devon Cottages.
Thanks.

Hi Roy,

As an ex-Devon resident and you being there currently, I assume you are looking at granite, as traditional cottages were built from local sourced stone. Ashlar was seldom used, since finely dressed stones were too expensive and reserved for monied client use. Random stone is more common, but some stone would be semi dressed (for sharp edges) for use as coins, opening and lintels (Timber lintels are not unusual either). Flint is found in Devon, but I would research where, against the location you're modelling. However, granite was available in quantity. 

A google image search for 'Devon stone cottages' will give you a fair representation (beware over restored modern examples), so just match your stone paper appropriately.

Don't forget that some cottages may had a lime wash applied, particularly with random stone walls, to help seal the wall against driving wind and a lime washed pub among a few cottages would be appropriate. 

The research is often as interesting as the build, so have fun on all fronts.

Bill

Another thought would be Slaters embossed plasticard, needs some paint to get the colour you want and to overcome the semi gloss of the plastic; I mixed some Homebase emulsion match pots to get a Purbeck stone look

The emulsion was applied with a 4" roller, I think some possibly rubbed off when assembling to give the slight variations in colour. ( Scratch built N gauge, I doubt you'd get much more than a maybe two pairs of houses from a sheet in 00, not long enough for a 4 house terrace, although you could hide a join with the down pipe;  windows and doors are Peedie models etched brass)

Remember also that great many Devon structures were faced with hung slate on the weather sides. The Ship Inn at Ugborough, in the South Hams is a good example.

Had an email from Stephen Lane of Railway  Scenics, they will be re-releasing the texture sheet downloads in N gauge soon, they ran out of space on their server so cut the N gauge, they now have more space so will relod the N gauge files.
