A blog piece about ways I've been using to cover up the lugs and joins that are the tell tale signs of MDF buildings, in particular their roofs. Full article is here Sorting out a few MDF roofs

I did the same sort of roof enhancement for a Sarissa farmhouse using tiles sheet from Warbases.



They have a large variety of roofing tile styles.

TacticalPainter01 thanks for the inspiration. I have a few buildings that could have their roof sorted. Excellent idea, mate.

How thick is the MDF for these laser cut tile? I've used the cut out cereal packet (actually chocolate packet in my case), but even the thinnest MDF would be much thicker than that. Having said that I did glue the card onto MDF.
