These laser-cut simulated Asbestos Siding Boards come two (2) sheets to a package. They are intended to be used for wall covering material - and apply in a similar manner as roofing shingles - row by row with a slight overlap.
If you select the adhesive backing, the strips are permanent self-adhesive - just peel and stick.
After application to a wall, they may be painted with spray or acrylic paints - but with light application to avoid over-saturation and warping. Add a little weathering with dry-brushing.
NOTE: The package contains sheets of laser-cut strips that need to be layered up - similar to real shingles. These are not pre-layered sheets.
Siding strips are laser-cut from a heavy wood fiber content paper and resemble the asbestos material.
Each package contains two (2) sheets that measure 4" wide by 11.5" long - approximately 92 square inches of material. With a 25-30% overlap, the two (2) sheets cover approximately 65 square inches of wall area.
These Asbestos Siding Boards were common in the 1950's thru 1970's, and will give your model structure a unique look.

Updated color chips; we've added some new colors for you to choose from !
If you've ordered a specific color of roofing before, that "color name" has not changed, so you may order it again and expect to receive the same color.
(But please note, there is some slight color variation from packet to packet from the vendor source for this material.)
You may be wondering, "what's the difference between 'Slate Gray' and 'Slate'".
There is just a subtle difference in these colors. The Slate Gray selection is the color that's been included in our color chart for several years - it's truly a gray color.
The new Slate color selection has a very subtle hint of green in the gray - a natural slate stone color.
