We picked up some samples of the new Monster Model Works N scale brick sheets and details at the Springfield show. Owner Jimmy Simmons has only had his laser for a few months but is already turning out some amazing brick sheet and detail items.
All brick is laser etched in 3D. This allows textures like crumbling brick, previously only available by hand carved plaster techniques, to be easily accomplished in a familiar wood format. Shown below is the texture of Monster Model Work’s N scale ‘Old Brick Sheet”.
To further aid in your construction of brick buildings, MMW also sells columns/piers/chimneys and two and three tier curved brick lintels. An N scale “Clean Brick” column/pier/chimney is pictured below. Note that the brick is seamlessly etched on all 4 sides of the basswood strip!

Chris Brimley, one of our favorite students of architectural modeling, mentioned this new brick sheet from Monster Model Works. Chris is currently using it in his N scale rendition of a National Biscuit Company bakery complex. You can follow Chris’s progress at his Hudson Terminal Railway page.
