I am looking to replicate a bookshop interior with sloping shelves.  The part to get the angle right seems to be #6044 (see photo) but this seems in short supply - does anyone have any alternative ideas how I can get the shelving (made up of 2 x 4 tiles) to sit at 45 degrees.  Thanks in advance - this is my first scratch build project and I want to get it right!

    Maybe 3039 roof tiles would work, or 3678 for a steeper angle.

    Thanks - I will investigate further.

    You can angle plates individually using hinges and clips. This might be a bit tedious, however, since they tend to slip easily.

    Look at the roof on sets like the Winter Village sets, a lot of them use hinges with slopes pieces behind to hold them in place.
