    I'm working on the house from "Beetlejuice", and I went looking for some metal roof textures. What I ran across is a goldmine for designing your own kits. http://www.mayang.com/textures

    One of my partners was looking at this, she said they were all just 72 dpi. True?

    Yeah .... but .... :grin:

    When these bricks were downloaded they were a 72 dpi jpg but it's size was 903 x 677 mm.
    Re-sized to 300dpi that became 216 x 162 mm.
    Printing to pdf and screen capturing at a convenient size gave the image below where the white area shows the size of an A4 sheet.

    Definitely not shabby.

    Incidently at 72 dpi each brick (with it's share of mortar) is about 162 x 54 mm or roughly 2/3 full size. :)

    Haven't checked other images on the site.

    That is a BIG texture sample! :)

    Wow, you could use those to build a 2/3 scale card house! Then if you could find a 2/3 scale tenant, the rent might cover the cost of the printer ink. :)

    Not a bad idea. [​IMG]
    The Missus is just barely 5 feet tall, which in my family would be about 2/3 scale (don't do the math. I already know...). She's been bugging me to build her a gardening shed at our new house, so.....
