Model Train Plans for Structures

When you receive your ScaleModelPlans.com Plan Package you should create a new folder in which to store the files.  Remember that the license agreement allows you to create multiple copies for your own use, (not to share or distribute), so you may want to try out various versions of each plan. You may want to build both a wood or styrene structure as well as a Model Builder version.

The Links & Tips page lists suppliers of cardstock, foam board, and other modeling supplies.

Once you complete your project in Model Builder, and print it out, you can refer to the Cardstock Modeling Guide included with your Plan Package for help in assembling it.

Model Builder templates are available for most ScaleModelPlans.com plan packages. Follow the link on the file download page after placing your order with us. Your MB template files will be sent by email.
