Add "Incredible Realism" To Your O Scale Model Railroad with These Quick & Easy To Build...
Sturdy & Inexpensive
O Scale Buildings


As O scale most railroaders will know; the cost of O gauge trains, track, accessories, structures, and buildings are really expensive compared to the smaller scales. O scale buildings can be particularly expensive, costing $50 to $100 or more each... and that's WITHOUT the cost of painting and weathering to hide the artifical "plasticy" look. That's why these "photo realistic" downloadable O scale buildings represent such good value for money!

Constructing these O Scale Buildings is as Easy as 1, 2, 3!

STEP #1

Download and print out the designs on A4 (letter size) using your home printer. The plans are supplied in both A4 (lettersize), and A3 (tabloid) size. If you choose to print A3 (tabloid) size, you can then simply download the file to a USB memory stick and drop it off at your local fast copy shop.

All buildings are sized 1:48 (1/4 inch = 1 foot), but if you want to make a building look as if it's further away, it is easy to alter the printer settings to reduce the print size e.g. 85% instead of 100%. Unlike plastic buildings, these downloadable building designs are very flexible. You can even print multiple copies of the same building WITHOUT paying for a second download.

STEP #2

Cut the corflute or foam* to the size and shape of the printed design before gluing the design onto it. You can use a glue stick, clear glue in a tube, or spray adhesive (it's your choice). Just make sure there are no air bubbles.

STEP #3

Glue the front, sides and roof in place. Flaps are included to make this part easy. That's it... you're finished!

* Corflute or foam not included

These model building plans are quick and easy to download, and SUPER STURDY when constructed with inexpensive corflute board (the stuff real estate signs are made from). It comes in a big sheet and is available from a hardware or discount store.

Using foam board is another option as it is also strong (and cheap to buy). Card or plywood can also be used.



Additional Tips:

  • Although not necessary, the completed buildings can be lightly sprayed with a clear matt varnish.
  • Remember you can print out a second copy. To add more dimension you could try gluing doors and/or windows in front of, or behind, the original print. This will make them look either closer or further away. A door or two could be cut out and left slightly ajar to add to the 3D effect.
  • Corflute is available in a range of colors. Black corflute is particularly good if you want to open windows and light the interior.
  • Low-relief buildings are perfect for O scale model railroads because they make better use of the space, yet still provide an incredible dimension and perspective the scene. The 3-sided buildings create the illusion of being life-sized buildings without the need for 4 walls.
  • These O scale models are best positioned against the background wall to give the illusion the scenery stretches miles further into the distance than it really does.

When you download these designs you will see they are not just drawings, but are actually photorealistic replicas of real full-sized structures. They look just like scaled-down versions of the real thing!

You can download the plans as PDF files ready for printing on A4 (letter) paper, or on A3 (tabloid) paper. You only need to download them once, and print out several copies if you choose. You only pay once.

The plans are copyright protected and cannot be sold commercially, traded, or given away. Ordinary paper is okay for printing, or you can pay about 10 to15 cents for a sheet of thicker matt paper (that is your choice).

These O scale designs are protected by our 60 day, money back guarantee. Delivery is almost immediately by instant download, so there is no shipping or handling to pay.
