28MM-30MM SCALE: This paper model is easy to assemble, requiring just cardstock sheets to print on (110# or 199gsm cardstock recommended), scissors, hobby knife and ordinary glue. It may look complicated, but every part of the Inventor's House is simple to assemble on its own, and putting it together is just a matter of building up the simple shapes into the complete structure you see here.
Step-by-step instructions are provided. Also included are tips and advice for printing at various popular gaming and model railroad scales. These graphics are high-quality 300dpi resolution, so they'll look sharp at any size.
MULTI-LAYERED PDFs: The Inventor's House features multiple texture layers, putting you in control over the final look of your model before you print. If you like, you can print several versions of this model and scatter them around your gaming table. If you don't like the rooftop platform, that's okay -- it's just an option. You can leave it off entirely and create a much more normal looking building. Many looks are possible with this one kit.
You get all of these texture options:
- Stone walls (2 colors) and brick walls (2 colors) on the lower level
- Wood walls (2 colors) or half-timbered walls on the upper levels
- Several window and door positions
- 3 roof styles (slate tiles, clay tiles or wooden shingles)
- Several chimney and roof dormer positions
- Optional annex
- Optional rooftop platform for weather experiments
- And more!
SINGLE-LAYERED PDFs: For your printing convenience, this model includes a prepared version that's easy to print right away.
