paper model buildings

A great many people are intrigued by paper model buildings and how good they are for bringing a level of quality and realism to scenery on a railroad layout. The reason for the “true-to-life” look is due to the photographic images used on many of the scale models. The plans which you can download from this website are not like illustrations, drawings, or graphics – they actually resemble photographic images, so can be used like printable color templates that replicate real lifelike structures. You just can’t achieve the same level of authentic realism and originality with plastic kits.

Have a look through the plethora of amazing printable paper models available for sale on this website. Not only are they fun and practical to construct, they are also incredibly durable and strong when assembled using cardboard from cereal boxes, sometimes corflute, and even balsa wood painted with acrylic paints for post and chimney construction. What’s more, the plans for these railroad buildings are easy to extend, add to, and modify to suit the unique requirements of your train layout scenery or diorama scene.

The above picture shows some of the range of background structures that can be downloaded and constructed from inexpensive corflute board. They get printed on paper (regular photocopy works better than expensive alternatives), and glued to some corflute or foam board. This process makes the models amazingly strong, just like plastic kits but without the expensive price tag. So it is feasible to construct multiple scale railroad buildings for the cost of just one or two plastic models. And, the paper models won’t require painting, or skilled weathering to achieve the kind of quality exhibited with these printable plans. That’s not to say that plastic kits are a waste of money, you just need to be aware of the higher cost and additional work and skills required to construct them to a high standard.

Paper Model Buildings Old

Not only are these designs very sturdy when put together with card, there is also an incredible variety of downloadable plans to select from and buy. The above old west and mining town models are an example of the variety templates that can be downloaded. They can be put together with paper, card, and balsa wood can be used for the thin post supports. All those materials are inexpensive and readily available at art and craft hobby stores. The cardboard can be card from cornflake packages, so that will save you throwing the old packs in the trash. Extra card can be glued inside assembled buildings if necessary to provide additional strength. These printable plans are particularly suitable for OO gauge railways and HO scale railroads, but there is also the option at the checkout to buy N scale versions. So, with that in mind lets talk a bit about that size of train layout.

Deciding on N scale has numerous attractions, but possibly the biggest draw is the small size when compared to larger scales like HO, OO, and O. Although N scale (1:160) is not the smallest (1:220 Z scale and the tiny 1:450 T scale are much smaller), N scale does allow for a considerable amount of track, scenery, and train operation in a relatively small space. This is a big advantage for anyone who has limited room available. Prototypical (real) length trains of around 100 cars can operate in N-Scale.
