OOh OOh OOH!  Sheet pile!  When can we expect this in N scale?  Heck - what are the dimensions of the face parts - ribs and such?  Sheet pile comes in many sizes, the Z scale stuff may have n scale uses.

I wonder of you could use one of the Evergreen corrugated sheets for N scale.  They have a large variety available.

What does Plastruct call it? Their catalog can be a bit inscrutable at times.

Wish Great Lakes Models had another distributer.  I got sideways with their sole retailer over a discussion of shipping and they basically told me to go away and never come back. Bizarre, and thus no way to buy their products. Lost sales.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Try Evergreen "metal siding" instead. The Plastruct textures are rather soft-looking--they appear to be heat-formed instead of extruded or machined.

http://www.plastruct.com/Pages/OnlineProductDetail.lasso   I have used PS-27 for HO...this is a smaller version.  Enter PS-25 or 24 in the Catalog Code box.  In Z I've used Evergreen 4530.  Dave is right, the Plastruct is a bit soft on the facing side, but the back side is pretty sharp and gives you, in larger scales the top down look of corrigated sea wall.

Hope this helps.
