    Help - need small piece of paving

    Can anyone help with a small piece of Wils paving approx 90mm x 50mm. I've run out completely and don't want to buy a full pack. The photo will show what I need. This is the only piece of platform left in the layout.Please.

    PS. Does anyone know the internal sizes of the brick arches in Wills SS55 kit?

    How about using a piece of plasticard and scribe the paving lines into it,
    Then paint it grey.

    Often, the very ends of platforms were gravelled, and later tarmacked. This can still be seen at Cobh. Maybe a bit of cardboard with lightish grey grit as gravel? And weather this plus the tiled surface to match?

    I'll hold out, if a bit doesn't turn up I may ask Peco if they have any samples.

    You could shorten the platform to suit the material that you do have.

    Its worked out fine, I need a pack to deck another small section of platform that I over-looked and this will be fine now. As for 'shortening a section of platform' I just wouldn't.

    TDR, I managed to pick up a pack on eBay - less than the normal price. Thanks for your kind offer anyway.There is a small platform section within the good yard shed that needs modelled with platform and I would need it for this anyway.
