1:48 Corrugated Metal Tool

Written by Edward Traxler, photos by the author.

Fassett Studios make a great tool for the HO through G scale scratchbuilder, a Corrugated Metal Die for shaping scale corrugated metal. The sturdy plastic die comes in two parts used to sandwich aluminum foil to stamp the foil into shape.

I purchased the 1:48 scale die which came with the two plastic dies and a free 1:48 triangle ruler to help align and cut my foil strips.

The image shows my corrugated material I created by rubbing the foil against the die with my finger and the one underneath by pressing the foil between the two dies. You will notice my fingers give the ridges a round appearance where the corrugated material used between the dies has more of a V shape.

The free triangle.
