Hi All,

I'm scratch building a water tower, and I need to make a roof for it, preferably hexagonal. Does anyone have a template for this they can share?

Thanks in advance.

You can read this thread; http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=41935
Also, you just need to make triangles to fit around the outer base of your water tower, and bring the tops to a point where they meet at the top of the water tower. like the pictures below.
