Great Find in Wilkinsons (UK only)
« on: May 23, 2013, 10:00:29 PM »
A couple of folks have asked about the ‘wilkinsons tiles’ that I have shown in the blog.

I can confirm that these were bought from Wilkinsons and can be bought online or in store for £5.95.

They are vinyl, come in packs of six, and are c30cm x 30cm in size.






They are self adhesive – I have mounted mine on hardboard bases in a variety of shapes and sizes.







The buildings (tan coloured are the farm set from EM4 - totally happy with these :D



As far as paved streets go they are a great option – in the coming weeks I am going to try and give them an ink wash to dirty them up a bit

Floor tiles offer a multitude of possibilities – check out the diy stores – all my rivers have been made using the oxford blue tiles from Homebase

Good spot! If I'm allowed out of the house this weekend I might see if I can pick some up.
Measure with a micrometer, mark with chalk, cut with an axe, hammer to fit, paint to match!

Do they have a texture, as in, are the 'stones' raised at all (bring a bit on Tuesday with you  :) )?

cheers

No texture as such.

I think the real question is why they are eve.n on the shelf...

Most of the range is really handy and, best of all, cheap! I made my road sections out of two packs of these.
