Download, Print, and Build The Scale Models In This Background Shopping Street Scene
Downloading the plans to make the stores and buildings for a model railroad layout street scene is fast and easy. You can save the PDF plans directly to your computer for future use. Construction is also surprisingly easy and straight-forward as you will see from video, and the completed scale models look remarkably realistic especially when compared to plastic models… and no painting or airbrushing skills are required. The photographically realistic detailing and weathering on each structure is already done for you.
Fact is; model makers and railroaders have their own preferences when selecting materials and adhesives, but the most popular materials for building background structures seems to be foamboard or corflute. Cereal box cardboard is also widely used especially for making roofs. Adhesive preferences vary, but railroading hobbyists and model makers typically opt for reasonably fast drying adhesives such as clear tube glues and spray adhesives. Super glue is a popular pick for gluing together any fiddly parts, corners, or where quick drying is required to securely adhere the parts in position.
Make Your Own HO Scale, N Scale, OO Scale Background Models
Buying and then downloading the paper plans for these scale models is easy. The first step is to select the pack or particular models you want to buy, and your preferred scale OO/HO scale or N scale. Then proceed to the checkout to complete your payment. The final step is to download the PDF plans you purchased. There’s no packaging or shipping costs to pay, and no waiting days or weeks for delivery. If you select the OO/HO option, then the OO scale plans can be printed out on a home printer to OO scale, or it is easy to adjust your printer settings to 87% for printing to HO scale. N scale plans don’t need scaling and can be printed to the same size when the N scale versions are selected at the checkout. Your purchased downloads will appear in your “My Account” dashboard at the top of each webpage on this site following purchase.
