This church and tower is perfect for model railways. You'll actually find these wonderfully realistic model building kits are enjoyable to make and extremely easy to make... and the wonderful part is; this and other printout kits can be printed a second time to make another building. Use your printer to print copies.

Each of these paper kitset buildings has really numbered diagrams showing you where each of the parts fits. You simply adhere the parts onto some cardstock or the back of an used cereal packet before gluing the parts together by following the plan. What could be simpler than that?

Each of the model building kits on this website is nicely weathered/detailed to add truly realistic character to your railroad layout landscape... but, if you prefer, you may add your own style of finishing touches.

These kits are easy to scale and construct: All model railroad building plans are downloadable in OO scale. From there you simply alter your printer or PDF settings:


  • OO scale size is 100% (actual size)
  • HO scale size - you reduce the print or PDF to 87% 
  • S - you will want enlarge the print or PDF to 118% 
  • Z scale - you can reduce the printing or PDF to 35% 
  • N scale - you can reduce it to 48% 

This (or any) model railroad building plans are sent to you by download over the net in popular PDF format. They come directly to your PC so you only have to save them on your computer to print them out whenever.

 

As I already mentioned, you make lots of churches (if you want to) for your own non commercial/personal use, but you are not permitted to give the buildings or files away, or to trade them, or to sell them. That could result in legal action.

You'll enjoy constructing these card kitsets and they will look wonderfully realistic when you position them alongside your model trains on your railroad layout.

 

NOTE: The above downloadable kits can be constructed in HO scale, OO gauge or N scale. The following article by Tony Nielson mainly focuses on N scale.

 

The Techniques For Creating
N Gauge Railroad Buildings

By Guest Tony Nielson

As you are designing and setting up you N Gauge train layout don’t forget about creating N Gauge buildings to go on it. Model railroading is a hobby anyone can enjoy and the N gauge trains are great for those who do not have that much space for their layout or just like the smaller trains.

Your N gauge train layout will certainly not be complete without buildings and structures in place. After all, a train only has value in respect to its relationship to people and the other structures that people build. So your layout needs buildings.

Certainly you can purchase any type of buildings you want right off the shelf, however many model train enthusiasts prefer to make their own buildings. This will take time, practice and patience but it is certainly worth it and it is its own reward. When you make your own buildings, as when you make your own scenery, you can personalize them and make them be anything you want them to be. You cannot do this easily with off the shelf plastic model buildings.

It is also a lot cheaper to make your own buildings as well as controlling the way your landscape looks. One method is to use downloadable buildings you print and assemble. They typically are very realistic in appearance and don’t require further weathering.

Another option is to scratch build your own structures. You will need some wood, corkboard, metal sheets, glue and paint. You could also get a pattern book for train or miniature buildings. Just be sure you get N Gauge size patterns. One of the major advantages of the N gauge is you can make very large scenes in a very small space. Instead of one or two buildings, you can make a whole town. However, do realize you’ll need to be reasonably proficient at using weathering techniques if you are constructing your own from scratch, and after you have paid for the materials, paints etc. they will work out more expensive than PDF buildings you can download.

Constructing a whole town will take some practice though. So let’s just start with one small building first. When you make your own buildings you can have as much or as minimum amount of detail as you like. Start with deciding what your scene will be and what buildings you want and begin with the easiest design.

Now find an image of the building that you want. There are many designs on line and some will be to N gauge scale. If they are not you can then draw them to scale. Use 1 scale inch equals 13’4” of actual size. Draw the surface shape of the building as your template. Make sure to include all the details you will want to include. You might even make notes on colors or signage.

Now visit a hobby or craft store and pick up some styrene that can be formed to look like many types of building materials like concrete, brick, shingles or even stucco. You will also want to pick up some wood perhaps balsa, cardstock, foam core sheets, files, straight edge razor, small sheets of metal and paint. Using these materials you will be able to construct walls, roofs, windows, awnings, and more.

Now copy your design template onto the styrene and then cut out your walls, and rooftop. Create shingles for the roof from the clap board. Sand all the edges and smooth them all. Use craft glue and plastic glue to hold your building together. Use small lightweight clamps to hold it together until the glue dries.

Once the building is dry add the windows, awnings and any other details that you want. The more details you have the better your building will look. Larger or multistoried buildings will need more details than the smaller buildings will in order to get the most realistic building as possible. If you want to make your building brick faced you can cut lines into the building material and paint it red.

When painting your buildings to get the most realistic appearance first paint them with a coat of primer using white acrylic paint. Wait at least a couple of hours for the primer to dry. Now apply the color that matches the real building either from your own knowledge or pictures you have found. Again use acrylic paints. If your building is multicolored wait for each color coat to dry before applying the next one.

Now you will want weather the building with a diluted gray or brown to add to the authenticity. Allow your basic colors to dry overnight before you attempt to do this weathering. Now let your weathering to dry overnight and apply a final coat of clear acrylic.

Congratulations! You have constructed your first of many N Gauge buildings.
