Model Buildings in Software Form that can be printed out and built up to 3d model buildings. Model Buildings have many uses Model railways, Wargaming, Model Villages,or simple as a created pastime foe both adults and children. We have been designing these type of buildings for a 25 years now, at varing locations on the web and at various outlets across the Uk, The software has been developed over the years, we now use the popular pdf format compatable with virtually all browsers/reader programs on both the PC and Mac. Pdf files keep a constant size when printed which keeps the scale where ever it is printed.
The links on the left under scales will take you to the buildings. The scales will be familier to those with Model Railways. For other uses for a large building the the O Gauge will be answer. However for most instances, particularly for children the medium buildings are the best.
Our models are, based on actual buildings, the British buildings are mostly from Lancashire or Yorkshire, The software is in pdf format for accurate scaling and 300 dpi for quality print outs, compatible with adobe reader, or similar pdf readers that are usually installed on both the PC and Mac, or can be downloaded free from the Adobe Website.
Terraces are both several houses and individual houses, and used 3 different heights, low, average and high to give more realistic skyline. Which you see across many UK towns and cities. Our scale range to includes the smaller Z gauge, the 1960s British TT Gauge and the larger O Gauge. The full scale range is now O Gauge our largest scale, OO Gauge a scale popular in the Uk, Ho scale that is popular in most countries across Continental Europe and North America. TT gauge a short lived scale in the 1950;s and 60;s and 2 smaller scales, N Gauge and the tiny Z gauge. If you are not building for a model railway or are using them for something where size does not matter, the HO, OO and O gauge are easier to handle than the smaller scales. For Youngsters we would recommend OO or HO. What is more the buildings can be built very cheaply meaning that a model town of city could be built if desired.
Most the models start with a title page with the models name, a picture of a suggested design and one of 3 categories at to how easy the model is to make. The intermediate models have a floor plan whilst the advanced category has additional instructions. Most models are in the easy caterary which need no further instruction
The next page(s) contain the model itself. To be printed out and built up. In all except O Gauge the longest walls or roofs are no larger than will fit on a A4/Letter paper which most home printers use. A few O gauge models need to be joined as the walls are as they are longer that can fit a normal A4 page. Some N and Z gauge models take a fraction of a page.
The model can be built to the suggested design or can be modified or joined to other buildings to make a unique building. With this system you can print out as many buildings as you require.
We will shortly be adding American buildings in HO and N Scale and Models for the 3D Printer that is becoming popular.as shown below
