Wow, they look great, really nice textures. I have no idea how you create such things but is it possible to make the patterns more random? This would increase the realism a lot I feel. Especially like the older brick

Hi train-studio

thanks for your reply i know its copyed and pasted time after time to make a A4 photo size sheet of paper bu i thought it would be ideal for small houses etc.. were as you could cut out and make a diffrent cut out every time it would waist of lot of ink and paper but it is still a cheaper alternative way :idea: me and my little boy have just started out at building a layout and i would like to make my own models myself heres a link of the baseboard that we are going to build on reguards spike

ah yes spikey, i understand what you mean, on a smaller model they would be great like a building or hut and maybe in even brick bridges, tunnel mouths or viaducts, too repetitive for retaining walls though i would say.
