The roof shingles are available in the 1/120 (TT), 1/87 (H0), 1/72, 1/48, and 1/35 scales and is suitable for covering the roofs of wooden houses or similar buildings.
The roof shingles are laser-cut from veneer, which resembles real roof shingles.
When cutting or breaking off individual strips of shingles, the strips may break because they are made of thin veneer. The broken and shorter parts of these strips can be used in the same way as the long ones. Shingles are usually glued to other parts, so shorter strips can be used without any problems.
