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.

thank you

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.
