#1136 TECHNIQUES: Roof shingles technique

Today's technique is by Kloou. on Flickr and can be used to create roof shingles in a conical shape. He used it for his Rapunzel's Tower MOC, and you can find pictures of that build using this link:

The roof itself looks stunning, but the technique behind it is pretty simple. 2 main parts are used; 2x2 square flags and flexible tubes. The tubes are curved into shape and held in place by clips, and then the flags just attach. Simple!

Flex tubes come in a range of sizes, so to create the conical shape, shorter lengths are used as you go higher with the cone.
