Model Railroading may be our forté, but Christmas Spirit is right up there too!
This is a Christmas craft designed more for a fireplace mantel than a railroad layout. Make this a family project for Christmas. Create a Christmas decoration while introducing the family to cardstock model making.
The PDF Plan Package includes printable color patterns to construct three HO Scale (1:87) buildings, including the Cottage, Village Church, and Toy Store. (Building sizes approx. 4" x 4", 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", and 4" x 6 1/2").
* Please note: This is a cardstock-only package and does not include scaled plans or templates.
Also included is an eleven page generic Cardstock Modelling Guide showing the basic steps in assembling a cardstock model. Although we recommend this as a great family activity for the holidays, some of the folds and cuts require care and precision, so we advise that an adult is involved in the construction of this kit.

Model Railroad buildings are available in finished form from a variety of manufacturers. You can find completed structures ready to place on your layout, or model building kits, ready for you to assemble. Either form will provide a valuable
embellishment to your model railroad layout, but if you are passionate about your hobby, why not go all the way and create your own model railroad buildings? Our comprehensive scale plans allow you to use your choice of
materials to create inexpensive, yet realistic alternatives to model railroad building kits at a fraction of the cost. Try one of our scale plans and see why thousands of model railroad hobbyists choose to scratch build
their model buildings in favor of kit form structures or pre-assembled models.
