    I'm scratch building a brick building that's burned out and under demolition. So far I've managed to build the foundation, basement and the remains of the brick walls (partly broken down) Now what I need are piles of loose bricks lying around the ruin. does anyone know how I might accomplish this?

    the only thing I can think of is to get styrene strips of the right width and height, and then make some kind of jig to chop them to length. they would be pretty small. Maybe micro mark sells some king of inexpensive chopping jig.

    Hiya glenn, I have a helpful hint, i think. When I goto that restaurant with the clown in the yellow pajamas and big red shoes:D , I usually pick up a handful of those white plastic coffee stirs. They seem to do the trick for me. Whack some of these bad boys up to size and you got it. Good Luck !!!

    Try Dr. Ben's Baby Building Blocks, they have several sizes and would be perfect for what you want.

    I don't know what the baby blocks are so I think I'll go with the stir sticks. Thanks everyone for your help.
