1:35 Scale Pantiles Mould (1350057)

The 1:35 Scale Pantiles Mould produces individual 1:35 scale Pantiles. Pantiles originally came from the Low Countries making them the ideal roof covering for those Northern European dioramas.

These Pantiles have a single nib on the underside to make it easier to hang them from battens. Just in front of the nib there is a small flat area. When pressing the tile down onto the batten this flat should help hold the tile level.

For rows of Pantiles to mesh together properly the top right and bottom left corners are mitred. These scale Pantiles are not mitred but do have slight scribe lines cast into them on the under side. Using the scribe lines as a rough guide, sand the corners off or snap them off with a pair of square ended tweezers.

The tiles are designed to have a 1 mm side and 2 mm end overlap making the gauge (centre to centre of the battens) 8 mm.

We have included two PDF files for download that may help with the batten and tile layout.
It is common practice to hang a row of Flat Eaves Tiles from the first batten. The first row of Pantiles is hung from the second batten from right to left.

The ridge can be covered using Half Round Ridge Tiles.

This mould is similar in design to the Spanish Barrel Tiles Mould and some people may find it difficult to use so please make sure you check out the Using the 1:35 Scale Spanish Barrel Tiles Mould. The tiles produced by both these moulds are very thin so expect some breakages.

This mould will give you a virtually unlimited supply of 1:35 scale Pantiles if used with plaster (using some resins will reduce the life of the mould).

These moulds are made of the high quality platinum-cure silicone giving the mould an exceptionally long library life and high resistance to aggressive resins if you choose to use resin instead of plaster.

Specifications:
  • Tiles per casting: 84
  • Approximate size: L 10 mm x W 7 mm with a thickness of 0.6 mm.
We recommend:
  • Terracotta casting powder with iron for making the tiles (some people like to reduce the amount of iron for tiles by using a magnet).
  • Alternatively a very good quality hard castings plaster with a minimum compressive strength of 7000 psi. Anything less and the tiles will just break when you try to remove them.
  • Powder pigments to colour the plaster rather than painting the cast tiles.
