HO Scale American Bond Common Brick Wall Sheet

Price: $12.95

Laser cut sheet of American Bond common brick with a bonding row every sixth row. This was a way of laying up brick walls invented and used across the US and thus the name. There is a header brick between each face brick on each sixth row. Sheet is 12" wide by 8" high with a non-printed border around outside edge. Image area is 11.75" x 7.75". Comes either with self-adhesive backing or without.

This is the same sheet as our L1006 Aged American Bond common Brick w/ bonding row Wall sheet that has a light aging finish to the brick surface has been added. This is a random pock marking of the brick surface and gives the walls a look of brick that has seen the weather. Our RC Board (resin coated cardstock) has unique painting qualities. The RC Board is a plastic finish so the paints don't tend to soak in. You will get brighter colors with it.

NEW: A good way to paint these sheets is to spray with light coats of Automotive Gray Primer. Do this from each edge of the sheet towards the center. This is to get the gray down into the mortar lines. When the primer is dry use a dry brush technique to apply a top coat of your chosen color to the face of the blocks or bricks. 

Laser cutting is deep so that when painted powdered chalks may be added to simulate cement mortar. Photo shows the sheet as it comes in the background and a corner piece made up. Two strips of the brick sheet were cut along the vertical mortar lines. One piece was applied to the backer with it's edge even with the corner. The second strip was applied to the 90 degree surface so it overlapped the edge of the first strip with it's edge even with the outside surface of the first strip. No special care was taken other than to match up the horizontal mortar lines.

A matching lightly aged common brick trim sheet is also available. Part No. L2002

This material cuts easily with a X-Acto knife. The self-adhesive is permanent so care needs to be taken when applying it to the subwall material. Window and door openings can easily be cut in this material as it will not splinter or break.

Price is for one sheet.
