Paul Egri has designed a Card Model of an Engine House you can download for free so you can “Build Along with a very talented card modeler Dave Rarig starting on our July 17 show and ending on our August 7 show. Doesn’t get much cheaper than this to build a model.
I have posted a one-page card model you can download for free in any scale, and use to test your card-building skills, on my Jim Kellow Facebook Page Jim Kellow MMR.
Below are the full-sized prints. Please take notice of the scale on the drawing. These prints are in HO scale. Paul has included a chart with the percentages you need to scale up or down these drawings on your printer, to match your particular scale.
As you can see below, there are 4 files that go with this project. To download each file, RIGHT CLICK anywhere within each graphic block below. A message box will pop up on the screen. Select Save image as from the list. You will see the contents of your hard drive on your computer. Select the Pictures icon on the left side of the screen. Then select the Save button on the lower-right side of the screen. That will save the file in your picture folder on your computer. Continue with the other 3 files. Now when you are looking for those files, they will be in your pictures folder.
