HO Cardstock buildings .. for free!

Found this link on another forum.

Quote:
In honor of the 2009 Bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth you can now Build Your Own HO-scale cardboard models of actual historic buildings associated with Abraham Lincoln. Funded by the Illinois Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission in association with Old State Capitol Foundation and the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, the downloadable model parts for ten Lincoln Site models are available.
Build your own Lincoln Sites

then there is "Build your own Main Street"

Replace the windows and doors w/Grandt Line etc, print out extra sheets of cardstock to 3d the surface ..

If you don't believe that cardstock look 'good enough' .. take a look at the buildings (O scale) that Troels Kirk builds for his layout .. coast line rr .. his models/modeling sets a very high standard ..

His Tesdorf Weavery for example .. like most of his buildings, built form mostly cardboard and paper ..

The water, and especially the waves, are outstanding!

His crashing waves are known worldwide.
Trax, The siding on his buildings are all made in individual strips,the printed buildings you are showing look like printed paper buildings, no where near a comparision.

Card stock modeling is a very fast growing hobby. It is amazing what some are doing with paper. Personally I don't care for it. They look a lot better in pictures than they do actually seeing them. I prefer using wood & sometimes plastic. That's just my worth.

Smile Not very far with this style of doing things

The closest I ever came to putting up a paper building was using that link TD gave out a while back. I copied the buildings off, and then pasted them to cardboard- which wound up as backdrops for my RR.
