Although it is very shaky you can have a curved wall using something simialar to Copmike's well that uses 1x2 tiles (to represent real life bricks) attached to headlight bricks. Not sure If this is my idea or if someone came up with it before me, or if it's of any use to this thread. I don't have the time now, but I'll try to picture this sometime to show what I'm talking about.

As simple as this technique is I haven't seen it described before on a forum.  For an easy and very tight curved wall alternating 1x2 log bricks and 1x1 rounds is great.  The log bricks allow for a lot more bend than normal 1x2s.  This technique can create a very tight radius and the log bricks give a more uniform look with the 1x1 rounds when compared to normal 1x2 bricks.  I can achieve a 24 stud circumference and 9 stud diameter round tower without any real tension on the bricks.

I also developed this technique for a roof.  It takes on the appearance of a clay tiled roof.  I would kill for that brick in dark orange.  Dark red looks great as well. It does leave a row of studs going up the ridge of the roof but there are ways to hide them.

That roof looks really good... nice to see that this part can actually be useful  :thumbup:  I found that I had too much of these as I never used them (and I only have a few), now I feel that I should have a lot more of them actually  :grin:

Thanks for the great ideas! I really like that round tower, it looks textured without having too many gaps. Brilliant.

And that roof! OMGoodness, that is exactly what I would want to use. I would never have considered using that part for that purpose, let alone any purpose.
