An affordable alternative to expensive kits
ScaleModelPlans.com provides a 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.
To help you get started, our plans are ranked in one of three basic skill levels, (basic, moderate or advanced).
Building from scratch may be easier than you think!
Unlike kits, when you build from scratch 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.
"I love the plans because they can be built out of any material!"
