Scale model scenery is too expensive, and the realism is not always there even if you pay a lot for it.
I'm trying to change that, by offering a series of really affordable model railroading papercraft designs, ones that have a photographic sort
of reality to them because they were actually originally modeled in a high-end 3d software, then textured with real-world photographic elements as a resource.
Better still, they're often designed to be modular and thus reconfigurable, such that a single set can be assembled in various ways!
This site was quiet for years, maybe even appeared dead. But now - finally - I'm giving the beautiful and charming art of miniature buildings another shot. The first attempt to push forward in this direction was a series of Z and N scale 3d-printed models made using Shapeways, but 3d printing is insanely expensive to do, and there's obviously much more value to be gained from the simple art of papercrafting.
As a result of shifting to purely paper-based designs, I am now able to offer sets of buildings pre-printed on cardstock, shipped to you.
Pre-printed products cost around $8-12 per kit including shipping, varying by scale, but if you have cardstock and a good printer at home you can also buy smaller scale kits like Z and N scale, in PDF form for more like $3.
Orders above $35 total include free shipping. The items are all set to be sold through Etsy and (soon) eBay.
I offer the physical shipping option for two reasons.
Firstly, not everybody has a functional home printer and good cardstock. Secondly, for larger scales, the cardstock I'm printing and shipping will in some cases need to be on a larger format of paper, either 11x17 inch tabloid size or even 13x19 for HO scale. Few people have such printers.
Right now you can browse building sets by region, on this site but don't be surprised to find that at the moment only products in the 'European' section are listed, including a 'Tudor style' British village set, a Fortress/Castle kit, a Parisian urban set, and a Venetian kit, each batch of designs available in HO, TT, N, & Z scale.
Each item is very cheaply priced even when pre-printed and shipped directly to you. All these papercraft products are, in fact, under $10 (plus shipping) and the shipping is free on all Etsy orders over $35 - and the prices go even lower during holiday sales.
HO scale - 1/87
TT scale - 1/120
N scale - 1/160
Z scale -1/220
From zany 'Z' scale
to the standard HO,
you'll find a kit that
can fit your layout!
Photographic, real-world textures,
applied in the most meticulous and believable way possible. People will marvel at the buildings once they're assembled!
