Tarpaper Sheets
  (Enlarge)  

Above animated photo shows the Tarpaper as applied to a model by Mike Chambers noted master modeler. Mike used the Black Tarpaper and an overspray of automotive grey primer on the larger area of the roof. The patches are the black Tarpaper with no coloring added. 

NOW Self-Adhesive backing for $1.00 extra. 

Just what you've been looking for, a realistic AGED Tarpaper sheet. These tarpaper sheets come in Black, Grey, Red or Green color and are laminated to a newsprint backer sheet to give them body. Works with any scale; HO, S or O scale.

Because they represent aged tarpaper there may be occassional holes, small wrinkles, etc. As these are made through the lamination of a fine tissue sheet to a thin newprint some blemishes creep in. All sheets are larger than dimensions give so there is ample material.

4 (approx.) 5" x 5" sheets come to a packet and are easily cut and applied to your sub-roofing.

If you desire a weathered appearance to the Tarpaper then :For the Black Tarpaper a light overspray of Gey Automotive Primer. Keep the coating just a fine mist, do not over spray the tarpaper sheet. For the Grey (silver) Tarpaper a light overspray of a Flat Black will work. Keep the coating just a fine mist, do not over spray the tarpaper sheet.

Proceed to cut the sheet to a 3 foot width in your chosen scale. Use a sharp X-Acto blade and a very low angle on the blade. Use a steel rule as a guide held down firmly on the tarpaper sheet. You can turn the sheets face down and draw pencil lines on the newsprint backer for easier cutting. Cutting the sheet in the face down postion can also lessen tearing.

Use Tacky Glue or 3M #465 Transfer Tape to apply your strips of Tarpaper to the sub-roof of your model. Carefully smooth the sheets down and overlap successive sheets a scale 3" as you move up the roof with each row of Tarpaper. Seams can be highlighted with Gloss Black Paint to simulate fresh tar sealant.

Weathering can be done with pastel chalks and fixative sprays. A light application of a wire brush or scratch brush can be used to feather edges or show worn spots.

a great product

Thomas J. Wehrhahn - 2/13/2011

This product was just what I needed and the service was outstanding. Much better than tissue paper and the instructions were excellent.

Much better then tissue paper "tarpaper"

Dennis Carter - 2/10/2011

This tar paper looks great. It has the right texture and thickness. It looks great, and weathering chalks work very well for aging the surface.

Tarpaper Roofing for Logging Camp Cars

Robert Lydecker - 1/25/2011

This is the perfect roofing material for the new camp cars that I am building for my logging railroad. It cuts easily, installs easily, and weathers easily. The texture has some depth to it - just like the real stuff. Outstanding in my book.

Well, Hot summer it's not -

Not sure about your part of the country or the World, but here in central Indiana it's cool with temps in the low 70's. We may get a heat wave next week and get up to the 80's. With that I've been busy doing "around the house" jobs before we get hit with another cold winter like last.

I've also been busy trying to finish up the Nick's Flop House kit in HO plus I have a couple of other new items coming out in a month or so.

 

NOW 1/32" Plywood available for Laminate Wall Sheets We now offer 1/32" thick birch plywood as well as our RC Board for all Laminate Wall Sheets - Brick, Block, Stone and Ruled Sheets in all three Scales. These are the largest laser cut brick sheets anywhere.
