1:35 Scale Brick Pier Sections (Stretcher Bond) Mould (1350068)

The 1:35 scale brick pier section mould has the new interlocking design and pier sections made with it will interlock with wall sections made with the new brick wall sections mould (1350067).

The sections are easy to snap along the horizontal mortar joints (just score the back first) so you can make piers or chimneys any height.

This mould is not just for piers; it was designed to complement the new brick wall sections mould (1350067) although it can be used on its own.

*Please note: pier sections produced with this mould will not interlock with the old 1:35 Scale Brick Wall Section Mould (1350029).

A few tips on using this mould:
  • Use the glass/plastic method to smooth off the plaster after filling the mould (see beginners guide on the tips & guides page).
  • Run a small flat file around the smoothed off side of the cast pier sections (spacers only not bricks) to remove any flash before assembly (do this even if you cannot see any flash).
  • Use a water resistant/proof PVA type glue to assemble parts.
  • The sections are 3.25mm thick so will need a 0.5mm packer between sections when fitting them back to back to form one brick thick walls. We recommend 0.4mm ply as this is normally actually 0.5mm. See the Noville School Diorama walk through for more details.
  • Wet the wall sections with water before filling the gaps between the bricks with mortar coloured Polyfilla (this is why it is advisable to use water resistant glue).
  • If you want to make the bricks look older, put some sand on a cutting mat and rub the cast wall section on it before sticking together.
Specifications:
  • All sections are 60mm high.
  • 2 off: one and a half brick wide sections (opposite hand to those of the brick wall section moulds one and a half brick sections).
  • 1 off: two brick wide sections with one brick at the top.
  • 1 off: two brick wide sections with two bricks at the top.
  • 1 off: three brick wide sections with two bricks at the top.
  • 1 off: three brick wide sections with three bricks at the top.
 
We recommend:
  • Good quality hard castings plaster.
  • Powder pigments to colour the plaster.
  • The wall sections in the images were cast using Terracotta Casting Plaster with Iron. When filling the mould some black powder pigment was randomly mixed in.
