Mexican style roof tiles. Not sure I have ever seen it discussed anywhere.
Am working in O scale, any ideas on how to construct those 1/2 round clay roof tiles.

I have also seen plastic straws which have been cut in half used to make the roof tiles. I don't think it was on this forum, but a jig was used to hold the straws for cutting in half and then cutting the straw halves to equal tile lengths.

If your looking for a sheet goods product, I recently used these in HO scale made by JTT scenery and liked them....
You can see them on my project here: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=51789&whichpage=22
