TrainLife.com HO Scale: Laser Cut Brick Sheet - .016 Thickness
6"x12" Sheets Engraved into .016 Thick Laser Board
Great for scratch building these laser engraved sheets are engraved using high resolution images of real brick.
Choose any of our engraved brick sheets and in any of several different Brick Pattern Styles:
TLF-HO4001 - Stretcher Bond (Also known as 'Running Bond'):
All bricks in this bond are stretchers, with the bricks in each successive course staggered by half a stretcher. Headers are used as quoins on alternating stretching courses in order to achieve the necessary off-set.
It is the simplest repeating pattern, and will create a wall only one-half brick thick. Such a thin wall is not stable enough to stand alone, and must be tied to a supporting structure. This practice is common in modern buildings, where stretcher bonded brickwork may be the outer face of a cavity wall, or the facing to a timber or steel-framed structure.
TLF-HO4002 - Common Bond (also known as 'American Bond'):
This bond may have between three and nine courses of stretchers between each course of headers.
Headers are used as quoins for the even numbered stretching courses, counting up from the previous heading course, in order to achieve the necessary off-set in a standard American bond, with queen closers as the penultimate brick at either end of the heading courses.
Note: Because of the thickness of this material we recommend laminating it to a backer prior to any painting to prevent curling.
