Sample Model and Instructions

A sample card model is available to download and print, so that you can see what the models are like and experience construction at first hand. The sample model is a simple one (Office Block Type 2, model B1016), but it is available in both 1:400 scale and 1:500 scale.

Before attempting to build the sample model, read the General Building Instructions first. A copy of this sheet is provided with all model orders.

Then read the specific instructions for the sample model . They can be viewed by clicking here (the same instructions apply to both scales). Print these instructions and follow them during construction.

Then the model itself can be downloaded, printed and built.

To download the 1:400 sample model, click here.

To download the 1:500 sample model, click here.

As an example of the instructions for a more complex building, we have also made the instructions for model B1017 Control Tower Type 4 available for download. These can be viewed by clicking here. This model is also the subject of our first tutorial.

These files all download as PDF documents and require the Adobe Reader program to view them. To print from Adobe Reader, select the Print icon and ensure that Page Scaling is set to None (Zoom 100%). If possible, print on to good quality card suitable for your printer type . Card with a matt printing surface is preferable, with a weight of around 160gsm. Thinner card is not sufficiently rigid and thicker card will not fold well.
