I am thinking of using Scalescenes stonework sheets for  a few buildings on my layout, but having never used these before wonder the best way of using it at the corners of buildings, do you just fold it around?

I have been tossing around plastic or paper stonework but at 4mm scale it seems to me that most texture and morter joints would really not be that noticable.

Any suggestions, thanks.

That is exactly how Scalescenes kits are constructed. Protruding flaps are left at the ends of walls which are wrapped around the end and glued into place.  Why not download this free kit and practise with it to get the idea?

Good idea Terry, I really love Scalescenes and they make up into great looking buildings.  Here's my free kit done in 7mm scale:





Note the corner made with brick paper folded over.  A big improvement over Superquik and Metcalfe.   Downspouts help to disguise the corners too.

There's a free kit at Fine Scale Buildings as well:  http://shop.finescalebuildings.com/?main_page=index

These are similar in concept to Scalescenes.

Coal Office:





21 pages of instructions :shock:

I took the signage from the Scalescenes kit.

This might be useful, at Post 50 there is a diagram showing how you can wrap and cut Scalescenes papers if you are freelancing instead  of using JWs lovely models. I can't wait to get back to modelling after the move....well, I will have to if SWMBO has anything to do with it!

Sorry, that's a  brick building, this should be the stone one. It's already here on YMR somewhere but searching the forum index on my tablet can be problematical.

Thanks for these links Chubber, great help, never used stonework sheets before but think I will give it a try.Really like the Warehouse, might borrow the dwg and modify it to suit my Dartmoor NG layout.
Thanks again

Your very welcome, Roy, that's surely the ethos of YMR, show, enquire or explain and assist? 
(And links don't  detract from the O.P.s thread......)
