Real brickwork is quite interesting, right up there with watching paint dry or grass grow , and what many people forget is that stretcher bond for house walling is a fairly recent development as a cladding over blockwork. Older properties will be English bond or Flemish bond, and that introduces such joys as queen closers (quarter bricks) and the like! Oh dear, I'm rambling...... Anyway, I've an interesting little plan for the exposed end wall of No.6 which I hope will work and create a talking point I've only modelled in N scales but I prefer the cardboard printed brick paper, the embossed stuff just feels too pronounced and takes a very long time to get realistic brick tones. However I feel it mostly depends what your other buildings are, having cardboard texture next to embossed plastic does jar, at least to my eyes. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
