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.
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
instructions for the sample model . They can be viewed by clicking
(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.

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
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.
