The Fine Scale Buildings models are designed to be modelled in 4mm to the foot (1/76) scale. However, as long as the thickness of card used is scaled roughly proportionately (and that you have the requisite dexterity in modelling to the smaller scales) there is no reason why they cannot be constructed to other scales simply by printing each sheet with the printer set to the appropriate scaling:
|Scale||Name||Printer Scaling||Card Thickness|
|1/43.5||O Gauge / 7mm Scale||175%||3.5mm||1.75mm||1mm|
|1/76||OO/EM/P4 Gauge / 4mm Scale||100%||2mm||1mm||0.5mm|
|1/87||HO Gauge / 3.5mm Scale||87%||2mm||1mm||0.5mm|
|1/148||British N Gauge||53%||1mm||0.5mm||0.25mm|
Please note: that the model sheets are designed to be printed on A4/Letter paper, if you choose to print out at a larger scale; you can tile sheets on an A4/Letter printer, print on a printer that can handle larger paper sizes, or use the following procedure:
