Naturally , before you start creating the lose, you must have HO, N, O and OO Scale Model Building Plans for Railroads and Dioramas. It makes the construction easier and permits us to easily determine the number of developing materials you will need with your HO, N, O and OO Scale Model Building Plans for Railroads and Dioramas.

Create Your Own Structures – Scratch building made easier!

ScaleModelPlans.com provides the bridge between ‘scratch-built’ and kit structures. Our scaled plan sets include traceable patterns and templates, as well as a pictorial guide to help even a novice model builder create realistic scale model structures for a Model Railroad layout or diorama. All of our plans are ranked in one of three skill levels, (basic, moderate or advanced), to help you choose which plan to start with.

    Building from scratch may be easier than you think.

    These are plans and not kits, so you are not paying extra for pre-cut materials, step by step instructions, or a detailed materials list. Instead, you get the details you need, the choice to use whatever building materials you choose, and the freedom to customize as you like.

    It’s a simple as: Print to standard letter size paper, cut out the templates and trace onto balsa, basswood, styrene, foam board, or any other choice of hobby material. No calculations necessary – templates are scaled to proper size.

    Basic hand tools can produce incredible results. Specialty tools make the job easier, but you can go a long way with just a hobby knife, razor saw, and straight edge.

    or. try Cardstock Model Building

    Each scaled plan set, (unless otherwise noted), comes with a bonus ready to print cardstock version in addition to the regular plans. Cardstock printed structures have a unique appeal. They can be an inexpensive alternative to wood or plastic construction, and if you make a mistake you just print out another sheet. You can apply weathering techniques to greatly increase realism. A cardstock model also makes an excellent “mock-up” prior to scratch-building with other materials. Also available on request are WMF template files importable into Model Builder software. *This is subject to change. Click here for details.

    * Now included – 11 page Cardstock Modeling Guide as well as a 12 page generic Construction Guide!

    And if you want a challenge.

    For the ‘craftsman’ who enjoys scratch building and wants more of a challenge, scaled plan packages include a set of scaled ‘blueprints’ for a true scratchbuilt structure using your choice of materials. Imperial measurements are provided, but since all plans are drawn actual size you can work in metric if you prefer.
