Herewith various methods of using half-round, hog-back, rolled and mitred tile/slate to fnish ridges and hips on UK roofs, circa 1900-1950.

Reproduced by permission of Mr N. McKay.





I've never seen 'hip-hooks' modelled.  Who will be first on YMR?







Note the comparatively small diameter of the roll top ridge. I did not know it was built up with two pieces.





Note, half-round and Hog-back ridge tiles, each 18" long.




The 'V-ridge' tile below could be represented by 0.6mm wide strips glued athwart a covering of the same coloured card. The plain stone ridge would just be light cut lines in varnished card. [pre-varnished so that there is no tearing out of the surface layer]







Not all tiled roofs had hip tiles, some were covered with mitred slates under which pieces of lead sheet [soakers] were laid to lead away any rainwater to the next row down.



I hope this will be of use to someone,

Doug
