Striking out on finding this for miniature buildings. I would like to make some buildings for 28mm WW2 but do it the easy way.

On Amazon they offer 1/12 scale doll house roof shingles. That's the idea but I need them smaller for 28mm. Any ideas on where I could find something like this?

There are thousands of products within the model railroading industry that can be utilized. You just have to know the scaling differences between model railroading scales and wargaming scales.

Salutations !

If you google 'roof shingle clipart', you may find something useful in the results thereunder.

With a bit of practice with a program like, creating 'shingle patterns' in size and scale desired is not difficult.

Note that there are several websites with free 'download, printout & assemble' buildings.

The mailing labels section of a big-box office supply store may have self adhesive sheets big enough for your needs.

Hope this helps!

I use cardstock model PDF's by printing them out on full-sheet label paper. I cut them out, peel-n-stick them to 2mm thick cardboard (chipboard), cut that, and assemble them into castle towers, walls, gatehouses, etc. No painting required, and they look good enough to game with, to me: City Siege game; Battering Rams, one with chipboard and label prints applied (larger model) and the other made of 110# cardstock; and the same technique applied to both sides of chipboard, to make 2.75D walls for a wooden fort (the infamous, Steading of the Hill Giant Chief, 1e AD&D module by Gary Gygax. LOL! Cheers!
