G scale simulated metal siding - question
Author: mile250

Several online sellers offer JTP Plastics Design # 97405 "G scale corrugated metal siding." But none show what the material is (styrene, ABS?) or the dimensions of the pieces, or whether the price is for one piece or a package of several. Very frustrating. Can anyone provide a clue? I have not found a working "contact us" link.

I did the google search looking for the manufactuerer and found nothing. Which was odd.   Yet like you, I found sellers.  I figured at least maybe find a distributer.   Nothing.  Which is wierd.  I did find JTT cross labeled a lot  and am wondering if it is one i. The same company but the last T in JTT means terrian and JTP means plastic.      Best i can say is find the cheapest one at a known rebutiple  dealer, buy one, and see what you get.  At least in this hobby you can always find something do use scratchbuilding supplies for.    I find it strange there is a lot of sellers but yet nothing about it anywhere

Thanks. Very helpful. I checked out the website. The very last item shown is 1:32 siding; all previous listings for "G" were 1:24 or 1:22. It looks like modern (angled) siding rather than the older ("wave") form siding. I'm also trying to get info on Evergreen products, which provide some confusing dimensions for their details.

What is it that you are finding confusing on their website? Their corrugated siding is not offered by scale. Rather by spacing. The widest spacing would scale to 3" waves in 1:24. Available in 6" X 12" and 12" X 24" which are their common sheet sizes. Since the material is milled out of stock that is only 0.040" thick this would be a very shallow corrugation. I don't think the Evergreen stuff would look like corrugated siding that we commonly picture in our minds.
