Hi all, I found this material in a dolls house supply shop, sold as 1/12 scale cornice it was ideal for the corbels I needed for a couple of old shops on Wigan Wallgate. There were several profiles advertised in UK sites that would probably also fit nicely also and at a few dollars for a 60cm length ( postage was more than the material :sad: )

 
Cutting at each slot ( as supplied ) produced approx. 2.5mm wide corbels

 


Approx 10mm x 7mm x 2mm and an appropriate profile, about 200 from a length. anyone want some ?

That is one really good find Kevan and will save hours of work and frustration. I bet it comes in different sizes too that could be used in other scales.

Not sure if it would get small enough for N Gauge but there is certainly a reasonable assortment of sizes and profiles available , and I got the shop to cut it in half to make shipping easier.
