I'm building NSWGR 6 bay roundhouses in HO scale.
I need to cheaply source bulk HO scale corrugated iron for the cladding and I'm attracted to the idea of scoring aluminium foil of a grade thicker than kitchen alfoil with a steel toothed comb.
I could buy up all the 2 dollar shop disposal baking trays and cut the bottom out of them but that would be wasteful and probably add up to more than a few dollars.
Does anyone have a solution to making bulk HO scale corrugated iron?
Hi, You might like to have a look at this product from Bunnings - I have not used it for model CI but have used it around the house. It may be a suitable product for your purpose. Although $14 it does provide a lot of material.
